Become a Member of First United Methodist Church

You may make your desire known to join First United Methodist Church at any worship service. Just come forward during the singing of the last song/hymn and tell the pastor that you would like to join our congregation or contact the church office.

If you have never been baptized, your first step is to prepare for baptism.

If you were baptized as an infant or young child and have not made a profession of faith and been confirmed, then you will prepare to reaffirm your baptism when you take the membership vows.

If you are a member of another part of the church (such as Baptist, Presbyterian or Lutheran), then you can transfer your membership from that church to a local United Methodist Church.

If you are a member of another Christian church that does not transfer membership, you can make a profession of faith and be received as a member.

Talk with Rev. Dr. David Oliver about becoming a member of The United Methodist Church. He will be able to answer your questions and help you discern what next steps to take.
