LAEFC Membership Process

Everyone is welcome to attend our church! If you decide you are ready to take that next step and join, here's what that process looks like.

  1. Attend the four required membership classes.
  2. Complete your application and return it to the church office.
  3. You will be contacted to set up an interview time with 2 elders. (Interviews are typically during the Connections hour on Sunday or on a weekday evening.)
  4. Interview with the elders.
  5. Elder Board reviews and votes on name submitted to them.
  6. Your name is published in our church newsletter.
  7. Once you have been through this process you are officially a member and will be notified about the next induction service.
  8. Induction during a Sunday morning worship service.

  • This is a chance for you to ask any questions you have about the church and our ministries.
