Making it official

I "officially" become a member of Christian Challenge tomorrow!

Membership here is a little different than what I've seen at other churches. There's no paperwork to sign, you don't get a membership card or certificate... but what you do get is a handshake (well, MANY handshakes!). They call it "the right hand of fellowship." At the end of the service tomorrow, they'll call a bunch of us down to the front and introduce us to the church. Then the rest of the church can come up and meet the new members and shake their hands.

It's going to be interesting... I've only seen it done one time, and that was my very first week here. Not sure whether I should be nervous or not!
