Growing Families in Christ

How to Join the Family

Joining by Transfer from Another United Methodist Church

You may transfer your membership from another United Methodist Church.  Please request a new member form from the Administrative Assistant in the church office.

Joining by Vow from Another Denomination

Since you have been baptized into the Christian faith in other denomination, it is not necessary for you to be re-baptized.

Profession of Faith

For a young person or an adult, who has been baptized but never officially joined a church, you may join by professing your faith. 

Baptism and Profession of Faith

A person begins the Christian life through baptism, which is the symbol of God’s grace through Jesus Christ. If you would like to be baptized, please contact the church office to schedule a visit with the pastor.   Baptism is a sacred gift and worthy of preparation for receiving.  One may choose to be baptized at any time, however, in our faith tradition once a person is baptized it is an eternal covenant that doesn't need to be duplicated.   


Please contact the church office so that we can get you the new member packet and information form.

Then the pastor can prepare and set a date for you to come and make the commitment vows to be a part of this congregation.

It is our custom to have folks come to the front of the Sanctuary as we sing of the Hymn of Commitment.
