Do you, the members of this congregation, welcome these brothers and sisters into the community of faith as communicant members and pledge to them your love, your prayers, and your encouragement as they live the Christian life with us?

I remember so clearly the day my husband and I stood before the congregation and heard these words asked of them. They responded with a firm and confident, “We do.”

Love.
Prayers.
Encouragement.

They promised.
