Thank you for expressing interest in becoming a member of Ward Church.  Formal church membership is a way to declare your commitment to a local church and can be a significant next step in your spiritual journey.

Ward has a three step process for becoming a member.


Attend a Newcomers Connection Dessert

This is the best way to learn about the church and meet others new to Ward. We encourage all of our newcomers to attend this dessert. It in no way obligates you to become a member. Childcare is available during the evening.
