The church seems so big ... will I get lost in the crowds?
Our size allows us to offer many programs that may not be available at a smaller churches. To avoid getting lost in the crowd get involved in a small group. It's amazing how fast a church shrinks when you get to know the other folks in your area of interest.

What is the process to join?
The steps to becoming a member (Active or Affiliate) of Burnt Store Presbyterian Church make up a series of 4 Sunday morning classes (or 2 Wednesday evening classes) which we call Membership Matters.
