Beltaine Blessings, One and All!
I am very excited to announce the long awaited launch of the Official ATC Membership Program!
In case you hadn’t heard, this has been in the works for months. It started as part of our launching the new Online Festival Registration process last fall with Hecate’s Sickle, and then again this spring with Spring Mysteries.
The Church is changing its membership renewal cycle to every February to align with Imbolc’s energy of New Beginnings. The team tried very hard to launch this program back in February. Unfortunately, there were some technical difficulties with the tools we were using, so we chose to delay the launch until we were satisfied that things were working correctly.
So, what does it mean to be an Official Member of the Aquarian Tabernacle Church. As a Church, our doors are open to all honest Seekers. This makes up our greater Community that we are all members of.
Church membership goes deeper than attending events. Members desire to help support Church and the greater Pagan/Wiccan Community, by becoming in integral part of its foundation of stability. We discovered that our Patroness, Diana hits the bull’s eye when she speaks about the relationship of giving and receiving. Both are equally required for success!
The goals of this Official Membership Program, are:
- To bring Church (and ourselves) into 21st century using the technological tools available to us
- Create a lasting Membership Program and process
- Bring the Church’s official records up to date
- Provide for the needs of our Community
- Improve the Stability of the Church
- Grow our Congregation for generations to come.
Using the lessons learned from our Online Registration, we can now (finally) offer you the same convenience and benefits of Online Membership! To see how to sign up online, please visit http://members.aquatabch.org and click on “Becoming a Member”.
So we can bring our records up to date, and provide additional services to you, we are asking that ALL adults (age 18 and up) that want to be Official Members of the ATC to please apply or renew their membership by completing a Member Application for 2011. Think of this as an opportunity to recommit your path through your support to the Church!
A Church (and her programs) cannot survive without a member congregation supporting it. Member dues, or tithes are affordable at $10 per month, per adult. These contributions can be made manually to the church, or you can tithe on a quarterly, semi-annual, or annual basis online, via PayPal. We can also offer automatic reoccurring payments for peace of mind and convenience.
Members in good standing have the following privileges available to them:
- Access to online member-only content as it is developed.
- Becomes eligible to participate in presenting public ritual.
- Can take advantage of Member Only site fees at ATC sponsored workshops, seminars, etc.
- Earns 1 (one) automatic entry into fundraising drawings that occur throughout the year
- Earns 1 (one) automatic entry into a drawing for 1 free Festival in 2012! (This drawing will take place at the end of membership year)
- First notice to special offers, as they are developed.
And last, but not least, an earning of the famous Beads & Cords!!
As our membership base grows, so will the types of programs and offerings that will be available to you. It is through membership that we can live Diana’s message of “giving and receiving”.
Again, to sign up online, just visit http://members.aquatabch.org and click on “Becoming a Member”.
