Sermon from July 26, 2015, by pastor Ben Shoun on why we believe in partnership. 

Partnership is our term for membership, or “joining” Arrowhead Church. Partners commit to joining a spiritual family who provides encouragement and support. They are called to a higher degree of responsibility, service, and sacrifice. Our elders and leaders pledge to assist our partners with care, counsel, prayer, and teaching. It’s our hope that you will make the commitment to partner with us.

 

Three Week Class

april 23, 30, and may 7 |  10:30am

These three weeks walk through who we are, what we do, what's required for partnership, and much more. If you'd like to join the church, Partnership Class is a requirement. Be sure to let us know if you need the provided childcare for kids 5th grade and under. Middle schoolers may come to the class, and high schoolers are encouraged to do so and to join the church. 

 

FOUR REASONS TO JOIN A LOCAL CHURCH

 

BIBLICAL REASON

Christ is committed to the church. "...Christ loved the church, and gave himself up for her.”  (Ephesians 5:25 ESV)

CULTURAL REASON

It is an antidote to our society. We live in an age when people resist being committed to anything - a job, a marriage, our country. Partnership swims against the current of America's "consumer religion." It is an unselfish decision.

PRACTICAL REASON

It defines those upon whom we can depend. Every team must have a roster. Every school must have an enrollment. Every business has a payroll. Every army has an enlistment. Even our country takes a census and requires voter registration. Partnership identifies our family.

PERSONAL REASON

It produces spiritual growth. The Bible gives major emphasis for the need of Christians to be accountable to each other for spiritual growth. You cannot be accountable when you're not committed to a specific church family.
