We’re a big church. “Big” is in our name. At the Membership Class, you can find out how to connect with others, take a tour of the campus, learn about our core values, and begin the process of membership. The 1st Saturday Membership Class is taught by our Co-Senior Pastor, Rick Countryman.


Many people have attended church all their lives, but have never understood or experienced the blessing and responsibility of church membership. At Big Valley Grace, the Membership Class is the first step to becoming involved in the life of this local church through church membership.


The Scriptures call each of us to participate as joyous members of His body, not to remain as anonymous and disengaged attenders. A commitment to membership in the local body is a way to obey the command given in Scripture:

“Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch over you as men who must give an account. Obey them so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no advantage to you.” Hebrews 13:17
