Connections

Connections is a three-week class which gives you a solid understanding of what it means to be a follower of Jesus and tells you more about who we are and what it means to be “reformed.” It also gives us a chance to get to know you and your story and to share with you how to get further connected here at TFRC. And it’s the path to membership, which is a great way to say “I belong here.”

The next Connections class starts on October 15, 2017.

  • Sundays from 10:30 to 1:30 in the Fireside Room (West Building)
  • Breakfast is provided
  • Sign up at the Information Desk in the Octagon
  • Contact Pastor Jon for more information.

Why Membership?

The Bible clearly teaches that groups of people who were followers of Jesus formed communities of faith that “devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” — Acts 2:42

The Bible also teaches us we only find our true lives in Christ when we follow his example by laying our lives down for others. (Matt. 10:39; 1 John 3:16) We believe that it is God’s intention that we do this in Christian fellowship, working together to bless the community in which we live.  To us, becoming a member of TFRC means publically committing ourselves to our shared vision of being “a vibrant community, passionately modeling the life of Jesus Christ throughout the Magic Valley.”

How Do I Become A Member?

  1. The first step would be to complete a four-part class called “Connections”, which gives you a solid understanding of what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ and a member of TFRC.
  2. Upon completion of “Connections”, any person professing personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior who has been or wishes to be baptized should indicate their desire for membership given at the close of the third class of “Connections”.
  3. Once the application for membership is received we will follow up with you and see if you have any remaining questions about the church.
  4. New members will be received during a specially scheduled Sunday morning service.
  5. Now its time to get connected!
