At Greentree, we think of ourselves as a “spiritual family.” Members of a family share common beliefs, purpose and a commitment to one another. It’s also a place where it is safe to be yourself, and a place where you are known, needed, loved and cared for. That is exactly our desire for those who become members of our spiritual family.
Becoming an official member of our congregation, rather than simply a part of the audience, brings a sense of ownership and belonging. Greentree becomes not “the church,” but “my church.” Membership includes other rewards and also responsibilities on your part.
If exploring membership and becoming an active and committed participant in the life and mission of Greentree Community Church sounds like something you want to pursue further, contact Diana Simonpietri, 314.909.9197 x1008 or to register for the next Membership Class.
We also hope you will be our guest at a Discover Greentree Lunch, held right after a Sunday worship service. We'll serve a family-friendly lunch, and you'll hear a brief description of our mission, vision and a little about our different ministries. Check the calendar for an upcoming Discover Greentree Lunch.
Our next Membership Class will be held on four consecutive Sundays - January 28, and and February 4, 11, and 18, 2018 during the Sunday School hour from 9:30am - 10:30am. We will meet in in Room L20 on the lower level. Please attend all four sessions. We do record the sessions, so if absence is unavoidable, it is possible to miss one. For those who decide to complete the Membership process, there will be an opportunity to chat with an Elder for about 20 minutes and take your vows between 9:30am - 10:45am on Sunday, February 25 or March 4, 2018. Ceremonial Membership Vows and welcoming of new members will take place during the 11am worship service on Sunday, March 11, 2017.
Please RSVP to Diana Simonpietri to register for the class. Complete the GTCC Information Form and the Spiritual Gifts Inventory and bring the Information Form and the results of the Spiritual Gifts Inventory to the first class or email them to Diana.

Sundays - April 8, 15, 22, & 29, 2018
Elder Chats - Sunday, May 6, 2018
Vows: Sunday, June 3, 2018 during the 11am service
