Peace Church Membership
We are so glad you are considering membership at Peace.  We view church membership as a commitment to discipleship and service. The apostle Paul used the image of a living body: “For in the one Spirit we were all baptized into one body-Jews or Greeks, slaves or free-and we were all made to drink of one Spirit” (I Cor. 12:13). In this biblical sense, to be a member is to be part of a living organism–a vital community animated by the Spirit of God to love and to serve. Paul’s statement also points to the inclusiveness of the church: we are meant to make this journey of faith together, in community. There are two ways that we accept members into our congregation:
Reaffirmation of Faith: If you are a member of another United Methodist church, or another denomination (such as Baptist, Presbyterian or Lutheran), then you will want to prepare to transfer your membership from that church to Peace.
Profession of Faith: If you have never been a member of another church or are a member of another Christian church that does not transfer membership, you will want to prepare to make a profession of faith and be received as a member of Peace.
We have Membership Classes that will help you to understand what we mean by membership in the United Methodist Church, discern God’s call on your life, and prepare you to join our congregation. You’ll receive a membership kit containing: A copy of A Disciple’s Path: Deepening Your Relationship with Christ and the Church and be assigned a special Peace Shepherd who will be your point of contact throughout the membership process.  Contact the church office for more information.
