Becoming a Member


  • September 26, 2021 - Walled Lake Campus

The New Member Class is designed for all who want to explore and/or become a follower of Jesus with membership at St. Matthew.  

It is an 8 session experience designed to assist those joining the journey toward spiritual maturity as a committed follower of Jesus.

The goal of this experience is to assist individuals in:

  • Understanding essentials truths for renewing and growing in a relationship with God
  • Learning Biblical truths that are distinctive to our denomination
  • Becoming familiar with  how life in Jesus is lived out with His people at St. Matthew
  • Taking the next step in growing spiritually with God’s people at St. Matthew

The class is offered twice a year: in the fall at the Walled Lake campus during the 10:00 a.m. Bible class hour; and in the winter at the Wixom campus at 11:15 a.m.

The fall 2021 class at Walled Lake begins September 26.

The winter 2022 class at Wixom begins January 23.

Becoming a member of St. Matthew involves three things:

  1. Taking the New Member Class.  
  2. Upon completion of the class, individuals will have a personal interview with a spiritual coach to assist in developing a plan for individual/family spiritual development. This will also be a time to ask any questions about St. Matthew that have not yet been answered.
  3. A formal public celebration for those joining St. Matthew is scheduled in Mid-May and December.
