Membership at St. John's
Becoming a member of St. John’s is a gradual process. The way to start is to simply come to church and see if our church is a good fit for you. If you feel that you might want to become a member, we ask that you fill out an information sheet. We will put your name on the all-parish e-mail list, and you will begin to receive THIS WEEK AT ST. JOHN'S, which contains information about what is happening at St. John’s.
The next step is to attend a Newcomer’s dinner. These dinners are scheduled three times a year. These dinners give prospective members a way to meet each other, enjoy fellowship and ask questions about the church. We invite you to attend one or two follow-up sessons to meet our clergy and learn about the opportunities for ministry here.
The final step is to complete a membership form and to participate in a brief new member recognition during a Sunday morning service. While we like the congregation to be able to formally welcome our new members, the option to participate is totally a personal choice. If you are coming from a different tradition other than the Episcopal Church, you may choose to eventually be received or confirmed as an Episcopalian at one of the Confirmation services presided over by the bishop. Some members of St. John’s have never taken this step; others have taken it when the time feels right. Confirmation and reception are very personal decisions and do not impact your life as a member of St. John’s, other than being able to serve on the Vestry (the governing board of our church). All Vestry members need to have had instruction in the Episcopal Church and have been received or confirmed.
