How to Join

 

Church Membership at Sweet Home United Methodist Church is open to any and all who seek the presence of God in their lives. Baptism is a requirement for membership. If you have not been baptized, please contact our pastor to schedule a personal pre-baptism counseling session. If you have been baptized in any denomination, you are free to join whenever your heart is called to do so.

 

Persons may become members of The United Methodist Church by:

  • Vows and profession of faith;
  • Transfer from another United Methodist congregation;
  • Transfer from another body of the Christian church;
  • Renewal of vows if they have lapsed;
  • Affiliate transfer if they are Methodists and will be in town a short while; or
  • Associate transfer if they belong to another denomination and are in town for a short while.

 

Profession of faith includes:

  • Affirming your baptismal vows;
  • Commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord;
  • Accepting the Old and New Testaments as normative for faith and practice; and
  • Commitment to live the Christian life and remain a faithful member of Christ’s Holy Church through your prayers, your presence, your gifts, your service and your witness.

 

If you would like to discuss church membership with our pastor, the following options are available to you:

  • Indicate “Church Membership” when filling out the Connection Card during worship.
  • Call or email to schedule an appointment with pastor to discuss your interest in church membership.
  • Come forward when the pastor gives the invitation prior to the last hymn during any worship service at Sweet Home.
