We have several people in our church who see no need to "join" the church through letter or statement. I have shared with them that to have a vote or voice in the matters concerning our congregation's directions and choices the "membership" would be beneficial. These same people enjoy worship with us and even help with some ministries. Our pastor is hoping to visit with them this week, but I fear if pushed too hard on this topic they may distance themselves. Do you have any other reason why one should be a "memeber" of the local church body?
