WELCOME, NEW MEMBERS!
The fellowship of our church continues to grow with the addition of nine new members. On Sunday, April 15, Pastor Luis admitted this latest group, comprised of men and women who, through their worshipping with us, made the decision to entrust our church with their membership.
As is tradition in the Reformed Church, it is not only the members who take vows, but the congregation also vows to support the new members with love and encouragement. Here is the congregational vows recited by the worshippers in Sunday’s New Member Installation:
Do you promise to love, encourage, and support these brothers and sisters
by teaching the gospel of God’s love,
by being an example of Christian faith and character, and
by giving the strong support of God’s family
in fellowship, prayer, service?
Congregational response: We Do.
Rhinebeck Reformed Church welcomes inquiries about membership from prospective new members. Please call the Church Office at 845-876-3727 for more information.
