Membership Committee

Chairperson: Cathy McAleer
Session Rep: Cathy McAleer

The Membership Committee is a committee of the Session and is composed of a chairperson, a Session representative and members from the congregation at large.

The Membership Committee is responsible for programs that involve the education and acceptance of new members into the church. Committee members welcome visitors to the congregation and provide them with information about the church's programs and ministries. The committee assists the staff with new member classes and reception of new members by the session. It is also responsible for providing a structure for actively involving new members in the life of the church. Helping Hands is a subcommittee of the Membership Committee.

Helping Hands

Helping Hands provides meals for members of the congregation who are in need of short term assistance, such as those returning home from a hospital stay. Helping Hands may also provide meals following funeral/memorial services in the church. These meals are provided by members of the congregation who have volunteered to be called on when such needs arise.

Pictorial Directory

The Membership Committee is also responsible for the publication of the congregation's membership directory. Pictorial directories are updated and printed every three to five years.

Faith Community will create a new photo directory this summer; it's been five years since the last photo directory was produced. Photos will be taken on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, August 7, 8, and 9. Thursday and Friday appointments are available from 2:00PM until 8:30PM, and Saturday appointments are available from 9:30AM until 2:00PM. Please make an appointment to get your portrait taken so we can include you in the new photo directory.

You can sign-up for an appointment online by clicking the link below. The studio, Lifetouch, offers online scheduling for those who are comfortable with it. If you prefer to sign-up the old fashioned way, we will have sign-up sheets and a volunteer to help you schedule your appointment following the worship service on Sundays through August 3.

All photography and portrait viewing will take place at Faith Church with NO sitting fee. You will have a variety of poses taken. One pose will be selected for the directory. In addition to your photo directory and complimentary 8x10, you will have the opportunity to purchase additional portraits on the day of your portrait session. You may invite friends and family to join you and have additional photos taken.

Online Signup for Appointments   

If you are not available on August 7, 8 or 9, please contact Mike Carter ( to schedule an offsite appointment at another time.

Joining Faith Community

Faith Community Presbyterian Church offers New Member Orientation as needed. Orientations are scheduled at 11:30 AM following the 10:00 AM worship service. These meetings are often preceded by a Visitors' Luncheon, which offers the opportunity to interact with members of the congregation and learn more about the church. Anyone interested in learning more about Faith Community Presbyterian Church is invited to attend. Please call the church office at 248-349-2345 to inquire about the next Visitors' Luncheon or New Member Orientation. These meetings are informational only, and you are under no obligation to join.
