Thank you for expressing interest in becoming a member of Ward Church.

Why Membership?

At Ward Church we recognize the need for a formal membership. We ask you to commit to membership for four reasons:

A Biblical Reason: Christ is committed to the church.

“…Christ loved the church, and he gave his life for it.” Ephesians 5:25

A Cultural Reason: It is an antidote to our society.

We live in an age where few want to be committed to anything…a job…a marriage…a church. Membership swims against the current of our society’s radical individualism and “consumer religion”. It is an unselfish decision. Commitment always builds character.

A Practical Reason: It defines who can be counted on.

Every team must have a roster. Every school must have an enrollment. Every business has a payroll. Every army has an enlistment. Membership identifies our family.

A Personal Reason: It produces spiritual growth.

The New Testament places major emphasis on the need for Christians to be accountable to each other for spiritual growth. You cannot be accountable when you’re not committed to any specific church family.

If you are fairly new to Ward we would recommend that you attend our Connection Dessert first. This is the best way to learn about Ward Church, what we believe, how to get connected, and discover your next steps in your journey with Christ. To register visit

Ward has a two-step process for becoming a member:


Attend our Ward DNA class

The DNA class is three weeks in length and is offered on Sunday mornings for one hour. The class revolves around God’s Story, Your Story and the World’s story. Attending this class does not obligate you to become a member.


Sunday, March 7, 14, 21 (2021)

  • 11:00 a.m. to Noon (in-person or online, select your option when you register)

Upcoming events will open for registration after the current membership class has finished.


Attend our Membership Class

This class is held two times a year on a Saturday morning from 8:30- noon. You will meet others joining the church along with staff and key leaders, learn more about essentials of the faith and what it means to be a member. Childcare is available during this class.

Saturday, April 24 (2021)
