Membership

We celebrate and welcome all God's children in this congregation. As a congregation with a forward-looking perspective, we seek to engage each other and our community through loving service in Jesus' name. Our beliefs are Biblical, rooted deeply in both ancient and contemporary Christian thinking, and at their best when lived out in our daily experience. However, we, like everyone else, do not always live up to this ideal. We are a flawed community embraced by a loving and forgiving God. Each of us is embraced and loved as we are where we are. If you would like to grow your spiritual life more deeply, be a part of community which is diverse in more ways than can be named, and are willing to live into the membership covenant of our tradition, The United Methodist Church, then it's just a matter of three steps into membership. It all begins by speaking with the Pastor. 

All God's People Welcome Here

Step One

> Speak with the Pastor either in person, through email, or even text! The Pastor will be in contact and invite you to the next Membership Orientation gathering. Membership Orientation gatherings happen once a quarter in February, May, September, and November. p

Step Two

> Attend the Membership Orientation gathering! These gatherings happen on Sundays after worship, include a meal, and child care is available if it is needed. You'll have an opportunity to meet leadership and staff, to ask questions, and to find places of connection. 

Step Three

> Be present on the Sunday decided upon by you and the pastor to take the membership vows during a service of worship! If you have not been baptized, and or you would like your children baptized, we can easily include that too!
