Karis is passionate about church membership. God wants you to live in biblical community, we're convinced, and we believe the only way you can experience that is by living as a committed member of a church family. Here's how you can become a member of Karis:  

Complete a brief membership application.

Once your application is received, you will be emailed an invitation to join a private membership group on The City, our online communication forum. In this group, you'll have an opportunity to ask questions, RSVP for classes, or grab a link to listen to recordings from previous classes. If you are not on The City yet, send an email with “Get Me On The City” in the subject line, and we’ll send you an invitation and help get you online.

Attend Membership Classes.

You will participate in three classes to help you learn more about the DNA of Karis Church: Gospel, Community, and Mission. Each class is about 90 minutes long and meets once a month. These classes can be attended in any order.

Be interviewed by a Karis elder.

After completing all three Karis DNA classes, you'll sit down for a membership interview with an elder of Karis. This process will be further explained during the membership classes.

Be introduced to the church.

Upon approval by the elders, you will be presented to the congregation during a Sunday Gathering. A brief introduction and prayer will be followed by rousing applause as you are formally welcomed into the family of Karis Church.

Please email us with any questions about the membership process.
