Membership is an important part of the life of the local church. By becoming a member of Glen Ellyn Bible Church, you strengthen the church through your commitment to serve and support the ministries of the church.

STEP 3: PARTICIPATE IN A SCHEDULED MEETING WITH AN ELDER.
The elders review every membership application. Each applicant then meets individually, married couples meet together, with two elders. You will have the opportunity to sign up for a time slot after attending the membership class. During the elder meeting, the applicants are encouraged to ask any questions they may have about GEBC. No decision about membership is made during the meeting. Elders debrief with the entire board before a decision is made. Once a decision is reached concerning your application, the board will extend an invitation for membership by email. These meetings will be held on Sunday mornings October 16th and October 23rd during the 9:00 and 10:30 a.m. worship services.
STEP 4: BE PRESENTED TO THE CONGREGATION AS A MEMBER.
Upon approval for membership by the Elder Board, new members will be introduced by email to the congregation on Sunday, November 6th.
STEP 5: NEW MEMBERS’ MEET AND GREET
We host a Meet and Greet with staff and elders once a year in the fall. All new members and their families will be invited.
