New Member Class

As we seek to serve one another in the Christian life, meaningful church membership is one of the ways that we at Grace Church fulfill those responsibilities.

To facilitate membership and the Scriptural understanding for membership, it's roles and responsibilities and it's rewards, we hold New Member Classes as needed throughout the year. This is a 5 week, Sunday School type class held primarily for those who are seeking membership at GCMB. We love it when existing members attend because they are looking for a refresher. We love it when those who are just looking for more information on what membership is generally, or what membership looks like here at Grace Church Monterey Bay choose to join these classes.

The next New Member Class will be listed on our events page. The class is tentatively scheduled to be held in the Fellowship Hall at 9:00am on Sunday Mornings (pending the current COVID requirements at that time).

So that we can prepare the appropriate amount of class materials, please sign up for the next membership class using this link: Class Sign-Up

Membership Process

The first step in pursuing membership at GCMB is to review the What We Believe section of the website. If you have any questions about any of the items in this section, please reach out to one of the members of the Leadership Team and we'll do our best to answer your questions.

Next, download the Grace Church Monterey Bay membership application and fill it out completely with as much detail as you desire. It is designed to be filled out electronically so space to write will expand as necessary. Once completed, you can either email the packet to one of the pastors or print and give it to them on a Sunday morning.

Once leadership has reviewed your application, they will schedule a time for you to meet with one or more of them to review and sign the application. After that is complete, there will be a New Member Welcome where we as a body will affirm our membership commitments, to one another and officially welcome the new people into membership.
