New at Wheeler

Wheeler Avenue New Members experience a series of welcoming engagements, with the aim of initiating a journey—From Intake to Involvement—that will establish a meaningful worship, witnessing and working connection for them.  The purposes of the church, evangelism, discipleship, fellowship, ministry and worship, provide a focus for the new member ministry activities; and natural abilities as well as spiritual gifts are determined, with the aim of building a foundation for the new members’ continuous connection to Christ and participation in the work of His church.

FOR THOSE WHO ARE BORN INTO THE FAITH AND PREPARING FOR BAPTISM:

NEW BIRTH CELEBRATION FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS—A welcome-to-the-family-of-God party!  The party includes an interactive role- playing experience for children and a salvation conversation for adults.  Both groups receive gift mementos and are provided an orientation to baptism. 

FOR ALL ADULTS WHO ARE GROWING IN THE FAITH AND PREPARING TO SERVE:

FRESH START:   This experience includes a media-presented, interactive process that orients adult new members to the Wheeler Avenue Church Ministry and motivates them to identify their role in the Body of Christ.  

INVOLVEMENT SUNDAY:  This activity is the opportunity for new members to receive spiritual gifts consultation and their passport to ministry participation.
