“Being a Community of Welcome”: New Member Sunday

David Early, Worship Associate

Being welcoming isn’t simply about putting out a welcome mat, offering a warm smile and a cup of coffee. It means creating space where people feel like they belong, where they feel comfortable bringing all their identities. It means being willing to be changed by each other. On this New Member Sunday, we formally welcome those who have joined Emerson as members, and consider how that changes the congregation, new members and old.
