Become A Member

Join with the members of St. Paul Lutheran Church as we, through worship, prayer, study, caring and stewardship, continue to grow in faith and service to our Lord.

There are 3 ways to become a member of St. Paul Lutheran Church:

1. Baptism: Contact the Pastor to schedule a baptism. The baptismal candidate affirms their faith and the congregation pledges support of the newly baptized individual.

2. Transfer of Membership/Affirmation of Baptism: You may transfer your membership from another faith community for immediate membership into St. Paul Church. Membership enquiry classes are conducted frequently to acquaint new members with the life and ministry of St. Paul Lutheran Church.

3. New Member Classes: Those new to the Lutheran Church will join the Pastor and other members of St. Paul for a series of conversations about the Christian faith and spiritual growth opportunities at St. Paul. We will talk about:
     • The Lutheran perspective on the Christian faith
     • Faith as a life-long journey, not just an intellectual destination
     • Why, how, and what is Christian worship? How can I pray?
     • What did Jesus mean when he said it is more blessed to give than to receive?
     • How do I talk about faith with others?

Contact the church office to find out when the next membership exploration series begins.

The people of St. Paul are eager to welcome you into this Christian fellowship.
