Membership

"For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ"  -1 Corinthians 12:12-14

 

Joining the United Methodist Church

Church membership is a way we express our covenant to be Christ’s body through the church. When you take the vows of a member at Athens First United Methodist Church, you make a promise to uphold the church with your prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.

Martha Aenchbacher is here to discuss the process of joining our church family.  Joining the church gives you the opportunity to grow in your relationships: your relationship with Christ, your relationship with other believers, and your relationship with those whom we serve.

If you have been baptized in another Christian church, we recognize your baptism and you have the opportunity to join by transfer of membership from another denomination. Please contact Martha Aenchbacher if you would like to know more about this process.
