You are always welcome at Aldersgate!
Becoming a member of our church is a way for you to show your commitment to Aldersgate and its mission. It means that you are willing to contribute your time, talent, and treasure to the ministries of the church and that you will take an active role in taking our mission to the world: courageously living God’s unconditional love.
The process for joining is described below.
Have you been baptized? We accept all Christian baptisms so you will not have to be baptized again. If you have not been baptized, plans will be made to baptize you before you join the church. Please call the church office and make an appointment to meet with a pastor.
Please fill out our membership form. Click on the link below, save the PDF to your computer, and return the completed form by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you prefer, print the form, fill it in by hand, and return it to the church office. If you have any questions, please contact the church at 703-765-6555.
Children under 12 years of age will be able to join after they go through confirmation classes when they are in the sixth grade. While they will not be joining at the same time, children are encouraged to go to the front of the sanctuary with parents who are joining to share in the experience and be welcomed as a family to our congregation.
The pastor holds Membership Classes several times each year and those considering membership as well as those who have already joined are encouraged to attend. Please email email@example.com for the date of the next class.
Please make sure to let us know which Saturday or Sunday you want to join. We prefer that people join the church during worship on the second weekend of each month, but another date can be arranged. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 703-765-6555 to let us know the date you wish to join.
