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.
If you are looking for a church home, then we invite you to join our New Member Class! For those coming from different denominations or other faith backgrounds, this class provides a supportive setting in which to learn more about Peace Church, United Methodism and what church membership means. There is no obligation to join Peace just because you take the class. Join us on Sunday, September 15th from 12:15 – 1:00 p.m. in the Youth Room for our introductory session. We will provide you with a copy of A Disciple’s Path: Deepening Your Relationship with Christ and the Church. This will serve as your study guide for your journey into a deeper relationship with Christ. We will host 3 more 45 minute classes (September 22nd, 29th & October 6th) during that same time, as we work our way through the book. Our New Members will officially join the church on Sunday, October 13th. Should you have any questions or wish to join the class, please contact the Church Office 407-438-8947 or
