Step 1 • Attend Our Gatherings
Start regularly attending our Sunday morning worship service and an evening service. Our morning worship service is foundational, and you’ll develop deeper relationships in our evening services.
Attending a Visitors Lunch is a helpful way to get to know some of Mount Vernon’s pastors and staff and learn a little bit about the church and our ministries. They also provide a great opportunity to ask questions. Visitors Lunches take place every January, March, May, July, September, and November. Contact Dustin Butts for more info or to sign up.
Step 2 • Knowing MVBC Class
Attend Knowing MVBC, a 4-part membership class for those interested in joining the church. Knowing MVBC is held every February, April, June, August, October, and December. In this class, you’ll meet others interested in the church and learn about our commitments, beliefs, leadership, and ministries. Attending Knowing MVBC does not obligate you to join Mount Vernon, but it is required for membership. Session 1 is from 9:00-10:10, during Sunday School. Sessions 2-4 are from 12:15-3:15pm the same Sunday. Lunch and childcare are provided. Contact Dustin Butts for questions. Click here to sign up.
Step 3 • Membership Interview
Following the membership class, you’ll be invited to meet with one or two elders for an interview. Don’t be intimidated! This is simply a time for us to hear your story personally and answer any questions you have about the church.
Step 4 • Finalizing Membership & Next Steps
During the membership interview, we will help guide you through the next steps to joining. For some, it may be learning more about continued discipleship or baptism. For others, it may be signing the Church Covenant and being recommended to the congregation for their vote of affirmation. Either way, we will be here to walk you through each step.
