How to Join: During each worship service, the pastor will extend an invitation to those seeking a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and membership in Chappell Hill United Methodist Church. If you want to become a member you may respond to the invitation by coming to the front of the worship center at the close of the service. The pastor will be waiting to greet you in front of the kneeling rail.
Profession of Faith: Making a Profession of Faith is acknowledging Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior for the first time publicly before the Church, as represented by the pastor. Baptized children and youth who have attended Confirmation classes may join by Profession of Faith. Or if you are an adult and were baptized in another Christian church, but are a not currently a member of any other church, you may join by Profession of Faith. If you have never been baptized, we will visit with you to talk about meaning of baptism and then schedule a time for your baptism in a future service.
Reaffirmation of Faith: If you have previously professed your faith in Jesus Christ in another Christian church, have been baptized and would like to reaffirm your faith in Jesus Christ, you may do so when you become a member of Chappell Hill United Methodist. People who have been actively worshiping with us, but have not officially joined Chappell Hill United Methodist Church may also wish to become full members along with others desiring to reaffirm their faith. Every time one new person joins Chappell Hill United Methodist Church the rest of the baptized congregation is given the opportunity to reaffirm their faith, as well.
Transfer of Membership: If you have previously professed your faith in Jesus Christ, have been baptized, are currently a member of another Christian church and would like to become a member of Chappell Hill United Methodist you may join by Transfer of Membership. The following week we will contact your previous church and request a transfer of your membership records. Baptized children or youth, transferring in, who have not been through Confirmation classes will be received as Baptized members and will have the opportunity to attend Confirmation classes at the appropriate age. Upon their desire to Profess Faith in Jesus Christ, they may then be received as full members of the church.
