Our Membership

 



Membership is Belonging.
At Anderson, membership allows you to continually grow in understanding, while finding opportunities for application in your life. You will strengthen your relationship with God and build relationships with your brothers and sisters in Christ.

Membership is Commitment.
Becoming part of the AMC family is committing to God's team. The Bible tells us that God wants us to encourage each other, live in agreement, and show others by example what it means to be a Christian.

Here are the basic steps to joining the Anderson Memorial Church family. If you would like further information, please do not hesitate to contact our church office at (313)3661400.

Step 1: Indicate Interest – You can express you interest in joining AMC by
speaking to a member or calling the church office.
Step 2: Attend Membership Class – Our membership is offered periodically on Sunday mornings, at 9:30am, for 4 week sessions. During these
sessions, many topics are covered to convey AMC's history, core values,
ministries, and responsibilities for members.
Step 3:
Meet with a minister – This is an opportunity for you to meet with a
minister, ask any further questions you may have, and give your
testimony of faith in Jesus Christ.
