Several times each year a New Member class is offered for anyone who is considering joining Lake Street Church. By participating in the process of membership and joining LSC, the community recognizes commitments and responsibilities to the members, and the members to one another. New members are asked to introduce themselves to the congregation, to participate in the community, and to support the community. The LSC community values openness, mutuality, and trust. Only members of LSC may vote in congregational business meetings and serve as an officer and/or Board member. Otherwise membership is not necessary, or required, to participate in the life of our community.
