Becoming members at Central UMC

Persons who desire to participate fully in the mission and ministry of Central United Methodist Church are invited to become members of the church.  You may become a member by:

Profession of Faith – for those who desire to profess their Christian faith for the first time, or after a long absence from any church involvement.  Contact Rev. Michelle Chappell if you are new to the practice of the faith, or have been away from the church.family joins

Profession of Faith with baptism – same as above with the sacrament of baptism for those who have never been baptized.

Transfer from another denomination – for those who have a current church membership in a denomination other that the United Methodist church.

Transfer from another United Methodist Church – for those who currently have their membership in another United Methodist congregation.

“The New Members” class is an opportunity to learn about what we believe, the sacraments, the history of the Methodist Church, Central United Methodist Church (CUMC) and a spiritual life.  You will become acquainted with CUMC, other newcomers as well as our Rev. Michelle Chappell and church members.  If you would like more information about the church or are considering making this your church home, this is a great place to start.  Child care will be available for children.couple joins
