Becoming a “Member” of KUCC
Kirkwood United Church of Christ is comprised of people who, declaring a desire to be in either a congregational covenant, a faith covenant, or both, commit to an ongoing covenant relationship with each other, with Kirkwood UCC, and with God. Although we do not typically use the term, other congregations may call this covenant one’s “membership” in the church.
A person in congregational covenant is committed to being a full part of the life of the congregation by investing time, talent, service and financial resources, and by being in prayer with and for KUCC.
A person in faith covenant believes in and chooses to follow Jesus the Christ, will celebrate and participate in the sacraments of baptism and holy communion, promises to grow in the grace and knowledge of God, three in one, and promises to be a witness of God’s love in the world in word and deed.
All persons who are or shall be in covenant with Kirkwood UCC are thereby in covenant with the entire United Church of Christ.
