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.

Before joining FMUMC we recommend checking out a Starting Point class. This six week small group style class is designed to provide a broad-strokes overview of Methodist theology and, perhaps most importantly, how we live out that theology in our congregation and community. Whether you take this class or not, when you choose to join the church, 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. 

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. It will be our joy to welcome you into church membership! If you have any more questions, please contact Associate Pastor and Director of Adult Discipleship Taylor Smith at

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:

March 24th – noon, Sanctuary
