Become a Member

You’re Invited to Join our Church Family!

Now might be the perfect time to pursue membership at First Presbyterian.   At FPC, we offer two types of membership – active or affiliate. Active Membership – a full or part-time resident desiring to join FPC as their primary church home, by profession of faith, reaffirmation of faith or Letter of Transfer from another church. Affiliate Membership – a temporary or part-time resident who is active in FPC’s mission work and worship and wishes to maintain active membership in another church.   Throughout the year, Membership Exploration classes are held comprised of three 1-hour sessions or two 2.5-hour sessions with our pastors and Membership+Evangelism Committee members.   The classes provide an opportunity to meet others, learn about our church’s mission and values, hear our pastors’ faith stories and begin connecting in our large church. There is no expectation that you will join, though we admit we are hopeful God leads you in that direction!  This opportunity allows you to meet our pastors, learn about FPC’s mission and values, explore being a Presbyterian and find your niche at First Presbyterian Church. We welcome the chance to answer your questions about becoming a member of our church. During the last class session, if you have so decided, you will be asked the questions of membership to formalize joining our church. You will be formally introduced to the congregation the following Sunday.   For more information about being Presbyterian, please contact the church office at (843) 681-3696.
