New Members Class


Description

We are glad you have chosen to find out more about Thornydale Family Church (TFC). This class is the basic introduction to our church family and one of the requirements for membership. Since each local church, including TFC, is unique, we believe that it is important for every person to have all the information that he or she needs in order to make an informed decision about whether to join our church. The purpose of this class is to provide you with that information and to give you the opportunity to ask any questions that you might have about our church.

Over the years, we have found that it is often difficult for people to make time in their busy schedules to attend this class in person, so we are making it available online to allow you to complete it at your own convenience. Although we have broken the class into several sessions, please feel free to work through the materials at your own pace.

This course contains some modules that are labeled as "tests". Don't worry, you won't get a grade for this class. Those elements are primarily for your own use - to make sure that you understand the materials and that you can ask appropriate questions along the way.
