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 more information, contact Rev. Dr. Patricia R. Williams, Minister of Congregational Care and Development at 713-579-2718 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
