I'M New

New Member Information

As you begin your journey at Macedonia, we are so excited about what God will do with and through you.  


The New Member Networking Ministry is excited about helping you as you navigate through your experience with God and the church. In fact, that is what makes having a place of worship most meaningful. As your new family, we are committed to staying connected with you as you find meaning in this new journey and season of your life.

At Macedonia, we take serious the charge in 2 Timothy 2:15 “study to show yourself approved your unto God, a workman that is not ashamed but rightly divide the word of truth.” This is why your spiritual development is important to us! Therefore, we offer Church School and New Members Classes at 8:30 every Sunday followed by Morning Worship Service at 10 a.m. Each 2nd Sunday during Morning Worship Service we celebrate Communion and Baptismal. Every Wednesdays we have Bible Study that meets at noon and 7:00 p.m.

Now is the time for you to take advantage of the worship services, the various ministries and the vast teaching opportunities that we have in order for you to stay involved and connected.

Again Welcome to “The Place of Transformation!”
