Membership has its privileges. Just this past week Ellen and
I went to the Green Bay Botanical Gardens. It cost us $10
each to get in. The sign said that members get in FREE! Of
course, you must pay to become a member. A person can
become a member at a golf course and get reduced rates to
play there, of course you must pay to become a member.

How much does a person have to pay to become a member
of the family of God? Nothing! It is free, your membership
has already been paid for. Jesus paid the price for whosoever
will believe in him. John 3:16 tells us, “For God so loved
the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever
believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Wow
imagine that! Eternal life is FREE and all you have to do is
ask Jesus to be Lord of your life!

Today, we will be adding two new members to our local
congregation. Our membership fee is $0. The membership fee
has been paid in full by Jesus. If you are not a member of
our local church and you are thinking about joining, come
talk to me and we will discuss what that looks like. We think
you belong here!

You are loved,
Pastor Doug
