At LHVE we strive for meaningful membership. We believe that spiritual growth occurs best in the context of a local church. We hope to be a local church that equips the saints for ministry, creates space for gospel-centered relationships, and fosters an ever-deepening relationship with the triune God.
Becoming a member of Lhve
Here is the process for becoming a member of LHVE:
1. Regularly attend worship gatherings, service opportunities, and social events in order to get to know us and to become known by us.
2. Read and complete our membership questionnaire in order to better understand our values and beliefs and so that we can learn about you. You can print out our questionnaire HERE, or you can request one from a pastor or elder (email firstname.lastname@example.org).
3. Meet with 2 of our elders in order to go over your questionnaire, discuss questions that you might have, and brainstorm about how you can best be involved in the life of our church and our mission. This meal is covered by the church and is meant to help you meet our leadership and be served by them.
