We were all created by God with a yearning for relationships. It is hard-wired into our DNA. Everyone wants to be known by others and to genuinely know others. To put it simply, we all want to connect.
At First Woodway, we desire everyone to get connected into the life of our church. There are many opportunities for guests and members to get plugged in. The easiest way is to join one of our Sunday morning Bible studies, Wednesday evening Bible studies, or Home Group studies. These settings provide the best environment for relationships to develop. However, there are also numerous opportunities to serve in our children’s ministry, music ministry, and women’s ministry.
At the end of each worship service, we give an opportunity for people to respond called the "invitation." During this time, worship participants who desire to join First Woodway may come to the front of the worship center where they will be greeted by a minister of the church. You will then be escorted to a private reception area where you will have an opportunity to learn more about the process of membership, fill out appropriate paper work, and learn more information about our New Member Orientation. You may also contact the church office (254-772-9696), and we can schedule an appointment with one of our staff at your convenience.
To be a member of First Baptist Church you must first be a Christian who has been scripturally baptized. You may join by a "statement" of your faith or by moving your membership "letter" from another Baptist church. If you have not yet followed Jesus' example in scriptural baptism, you can discuss it with one of the decision counselors or schedule a meeting with one of our ministers.
As part of the membership process, we do require all members to attend one New Member Orientation.
New member orientation is designed to help you get the best possible start as a new member of First Woodway. The orientation will help you learn more about our history, mission/beliefs, opportunities to serve, and the part you play in our future. These orientations typically take place once a month on Sunday mornings from 9 AM – 1:30 PM. We provide a free catered lunch and free childcare.
