New Member Classes—Membership in this congregation is not required to participate in most activities or to take communion (we celebrate an open table); however, becoming a member can be a significant step in one’s faith walk and is encouraged for all adults, as well as youth who have already been confirmed in another congregation. New Member Classes discuss such topics as: what it means to be a Christian, United Methodist beliefs, church history, the United Methodist Church, and this specific congregation. For dates, please contact the church office. If you have not been baptized, this will be incorporated into the new member process. Questions? Please contact Jeanette Brenner at
