How can I join First United Methodist Church?

By Profession of Faith and Baptism
Begin your life of faith in Jesus Christ by receiving Christian baptism. Baptism is a symbol of God’s grace and a mark of your life as a Christian. It is an indication that you believe in Christ, want to be a part of His church, and intend to lead a new life as God enables you. To be baptized, contact one of the pastors who will be happy to set up a time to explain the meaning to you and schedule your baptism. Email us about baptisms.
By Transfer from another United Methodist Church
Our church invites you to become a part of this congregation in our community so that you can attend worship and serve with our people. To transfer your membership, come forward during the Closing Song of any Sunday service and bring your completed “Join Us” brochure which can be found in the pew backs. The church office handles the paperwork with your previous congregation.


By Transfer from another Christian Denomination
United Methodists accept your Christian baptism from another denomination and do not require you to be re-baptized to join our church. We welcome you into our congregation as a full participating member. To join our congregation, come forward during the Closing Song of any of our Sunday services where a pastor will meet and receive you into membership.
(It is not mandatory that you come forward. If you prefer, find any of the pastors after worship and hand them your “Join Us” brochure and they will find time to visit with you and receive you into membership. You are also welcome to join at one of the monthly Coffee With the Pastors. While coming forward gives the congregation an opportunity to share this moment with you, your decision to belong is no less meaningful to you or God if you choose another way.)
Contact Pastor Steve Brooks for more information on joining our church.
