At Idlewild, our desire is to have a church body full of committed, devoted members. Attracting church attendees is one thing, but having committed, devoted members helps make a healthy church. If you are looking for a church to call your own and are willing to minister to others while being ministered to, join us! At the end of each worship service, during the ‘invitation’, you can walk forward and tell the pastors in the aisles that you want to join the church and they will direct you from there.

How to Become a Member

It’s as simple as A-B-C…

Children’s Membership

This new believers class provides basic spiritual training for children who have made a profession of faith and is a prerequisite for church membership. During this two week class, children walk through what it means to be a follower of Christ and member of the church. Sessions begin the first two Sundays of the month at 8:45 a.m., in room A206 for K-5th graders. Classes begin September 4 and online registration is required.

Baptism Information

Before completing the form “To Schedule Your Baptism” please, first, visit the Fireside Room/Invitation Counseling Room and share with us when you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.  You may go to the Fireside Room following any of the services, on Sunday or Wednesday, to meet with an Invitation Counselor or pastor who will sit with you and answer any questions you may have. The counselor will fill out a card and note that you want to schedule your baptism. We will then call you or feel free to call us and we will schedule your baptism!
