Membership Pathway

For those interested in official membership in the church!

Attend Membership 101: Pastor's Coffee in the Family Room outside the Administrative Suite the Second Sunday of every month.  Here you will hear about the purpose and strategy of the church, meet Pastor Sarah in a conversational setting, and get to know other people who have a common interest with you.

Next steps are Membership 201 and 301, which give you an overview of United Methodist Theology and an understanding of your own giftedness to help guide how you can best connect into the body of the Church utilizing those gifts! Membership 201 and 301 Gatherings occur quarterly. 

Ladies Bible Study Group -  This group of ladies meets on Wednesday mornings at 9:00 am to study together.

The sessions present many points of view, allowing women to decide for themselves when the interpretation varies among scholars.
