Become a member or friend of ELPC

If you’re interested in becoming an ELPC member, or joining the church as a friend, join us at one of our next New Members & Friends classes. These two-session classes are a great chance to hear from church members and our pastoral staff about what it means to be a person of faith, and the ministry and vision of our church.


Upcoming Inquirers’ Class

Are you or someone you know thinking about joining ELPC as a member or friend, or would you like to transfer your membership from another church? We hold New Member & Friend classes several times during the year. They are typically offered in two-parts with lunch during one of the sessions.

To find out when future classes will be offered, or for more information, call Gloria Knopp at 412.441.3800 x122. Please let Gloria know if you need childcare. We hope you will join us soon. Members are received by the Session and then welcomed by the congregation during worship service with special prayers and an affirmation of faith.

A faithful member accepts Christ’s call to be involved responsibly in the ministry of the church. Such involvement includes taking part in the common life and worship of a particular church, supporting the work of the church through the giving of money, time, and talents, and responding to God’s activity in the world through service to others. Find out more on our iServe page.

No person shall be denied membership because of race, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, worldly condition, or any other reason not related to profession of faith.
