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 do download a membership form. Complete it and return it to the receptionist during the week or to the Welcome Desk during times of worship. If you have any questions, please contact Richard Bass, Director of Communications, at 703-765-6555 x608.
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 pastors holds Coffee with the Pastors gatherings several times each year and those considering membership as well as those who have already joined are encouraged to attend. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com or call 703-765-6555 to let us know the date you wish to join.
