Welcome to Membership @ The Orchard!

Becoming a member anywhere requires commitment and heart.  At the Orchard our hope is to invite people into our church family who want to be committed to see God transform the community of Escondido by inviting people to find hope and experience love through faith in Christ.  The church is called the “body of Christ” in the bible making it a living organism bound together by God Himself.  When people “join” a local church they are contributing to advancing the Kingdom of God on earth by participating in the progression of building up the Body of Christ.  There really is no greater mission on earth!

What is Membership @ The Orchard?

Here at the Orchard when we use the word “membership” we are defining it with words like, commitment, partnership, service, sacrifice and covenant relationship.  To be a member at a church is different than being a member anywhere else.  When you say you want to be a member at the Orchard you are saying that you believe this is where God wants you to be and where you believe God is alive and active.  We invite you to take a step and become part of the family at the Orchard where you will be part of what helps the church reach people by inviting them to find hope and experience love through faith in Christ.
