Membership

Membership is an important commitment of both the individual and the local church. It formalizes the obligation that church leaders have to provide oversight and members have to participate in service. Morningside offers two options for membership: associate and regular.

Regular

Most of our membership are regular members, and anyone who is a professing believer and has followed the Lord in baptism by immersion and is walking with the Lord may be considered for church membership. Prior to church membership all candidates, 13 years old and older, are asked to attend the Starting Point class, and affirm the church Constitution and Bylaws. Prior to a pastoral interview meeting, please fill out the regular membership online application.

Associate

Associate membership is primarily for those who want to connect with a local church on a temporary basis while they are still members of their home church outside of the Greenville area. Associate members are limited in ministry opportunities and do not have voting privileges in church matters. Prior to a pastoral interview meeting, please fill out the online associate membership application.


instant church directory

With our church growing rapidly, we provide Morningsiders a great way to connect with each other and learn new members' names and faces. Our church directory is kept up-to-date with a free app (search for Instant Church Directory in your app store) or an online version called Instant Church Directory. To connect, send a family photo to mypicture@morningside.org.


Wedding

Morningside has had the privilege over the years of hosting many weddings. If you are a member or a regular attender at Morningside and would like more information about our wedding policies, fees, and procedures, please email us or call 864.297.7890.

Our church is here to assist families as they go through a time of loss. Please use the Morningside Funeral Checklist for the Family for assistance in planning a funeral.
