Becoming a Member

You may become a member of FMUMC by transfer of your membership from another United Methodist Church or a church of another Christian denomination, or by Profession of Faith in Jesus Christ (and baptism, if you have not been previously baptized). Children and youth under 12 years of age do not become full members of the church until they have been baptized and confirmed. For more information about Confirmation classes, please see our Youth page.

When you join FMUMC, you will be asked if you will be loyal to the church and support it with your prayers, your presence, your gifts, your service, and your witness. After you join, members of our Shepherding Committee will contact you to help connect you more deeply with your church family and offer you opportunities to serve God through FMUMC.

To join, you may come forward at the end of any worship service and notify one of our pastors of your desire to become a member. Bring with you the completed membership form on the back of the worship bulletin. It will be our joy to welcome you into church membership! If you would prefer to join with a large group, consider becoming a member on a “Join the Church Sunday” (for more information, see below).

Join the Church Sundays

FMUMC offers a “Join the Church Sunday” several times a year. Immediately following the 11:00 service on these special days, you may join the church with a large group.  This is a wonderful opportunity to join the church with others, and may be especially appealing to those who are a bit nervous about coming before the congregation alone. Upcoming Join the Church Sunday dates are:

November 12th – noon, Sanctuary

For more information about Join the Church Sunday, contact Rev. Bill Lewis.
