At the end of each worship service, we give an opportunity for people to respond called the “invitation.” During this time, worship participants who desire to join Green Acres may come to the front of the worship center where they will be greeted by a minister of the church. You will then be escorted to a private reception area where you will have an opportunity to learn more about the process of membership, fill out appropriate paper work, and have your picture taken. Alternately, you may come to the Bethany Suite after the conclusion of the morning worship services and speak with a decision counselor there. During the week, contact the church office at 903-525-1100, and we can schedule an appointment with one of our staff at your convenience.
To be a member of Green Acres Baptist Church you must first be a Christian who has been scripturally baptized. You may join by a “statement” of your faith or by moving your membership “letter” from another Baptist church. If you have not yet followed Jesus’ example in scriptural baptism, you can discuss it with one of the decision counselors or schedule a meeting with one of our ministers. If baptism in a worship service seems daunting to you, please contact us so we can offer other options.
If you have questions before joining, you can learn more about Green Acres in several ways. On Sunday mornings, come by the Information Desk in the grand foyer, or come to the Bethany Suite after a worship service. We also host a quarterly Pastor’s Connect Dinner especially for all new members and interested guests. Contact Candy Renfro, New Member Coordinator, for more information, 903-525-1153.
