BECOMING A MEMBER
Membership means choosing to belong. At Hamline Church, being a member means belonging to our church family, the body of Christ. We extend our invitation to each person if you are a follower of Christ and if you willingly commit to serve this church with your presence, prayers, gifts, service and witness. If you are considering membership with us, we hope that you will embrace the process by following a few simple steps.
STEP 1: NEW MEMBER INFORMATIONAL GATHERING
First, please join us at a New Member Informational Gathering, usually held after church or over dinner, these 1.5 hour sessions are offered three-four times per year.At the Informational Gathering, you will be presented with all that you need to make this important decision. You will learn about the main resources that are available to our church family members, our mission statement, what United Methodists believe as a denomination, and how we work to live out our Christian beliefs.
Contact Pastor Mariah for more information about upcoming sessions.
STEP 2: JOIN AT HAMLINE CHURCH
Next, if you have been baptized previously, you will choose a worship service in which to accept the vows of membership.
If you have not yet been baptized, we will arrange this with you personally.
You may be transferring from another United Methodist church, another denomination, or by means of profession of faith in Jesus Christ. However you become part of our family, we will love, support, and encourage you in your spiritual journey as a follower of Christ.
