We’re so glad you’re interested in becoming a member of Solana Beach Presbyterian Church. Membership is a very important first step of discipleship in this church. It’s a commitment to following Jesus and a commitment to our life together: worshiping, growing, serving, and supporting our ministry with prayer and financial giving.

Getting Started
Our intention is to help you discern if SBPC is the right faith community for you. Although we have much in common with every other Christian church, it is true that every congregation has its own personality and emphases. We want you to be able to make a thoughtful and prayerful decision about your commitment as a member of SBPC.

Part of that exploration is our New Member Seminar, held quarterly on Saturday mornings from 9:00am to 12:00pm. Childcare is available upon request.

On a Sunday after the New Member Seminar the congregation will welcome you into membership and we will celebrate baptism for those who have not already been baptized. We ask that new members attend both hours of services on the Sunday we welcome you.

Part 1 – Preparation

Part 2 – Seminar

  • Attend the New Member Seminar and bring your SHAPE results.
  • You will be given the opportunity to respond to the membership questions and become a member of SBPC.
  • Childcare is available if you let us know a week in advance.

Part 3 – Welcome

  • New Members will be welcomed by the congregation in both worship services.
  • Receive the sacrament of baptism if you have not yet been baptized.
