Today Marilyn and I begin a series of three sermons on the topic of church membership and belonging. We’re doing this series with the encouragement of Berkey’s Spiritual Leadership Team, which is a group of five elders who work with our congregation’s mission, vision, and pastoral staff.
Last fall the Spiritual Leadership Team, or SLT for short, began talking about the way we handle membership in our congregation. The impetus for this conversation comes from five places.
