You are welcome here no matter where you are on your spiritual journey. You do not have to be a member to participate in worship, activities, small groups or classes. We invite you to LIFE@LWP to learn more about the church and meet members of our staff. Then, if you decide to join the church, come to Coffee with the Pastor to learn about membership expectations. These opportunities will be announced frequently.
What does it mean to be a "member" of the church?
Church membership is a covenant relationship among God, the church member, and the entire congregation. Together, we profess the Christian faith and seek to live as disciples of Jesus Christ. Church members grow in their faith, care for one another, and utilize their spiritual gifts to glorify God and serve the community.
What are the membership options?
Professing Members. Individuals who have been baptized, made a profession of faith, and committed to faithfully participate in the life and ministry of the church.
Baptized Members. Individuals (typically children) who have been baptized but have not made a profession of faith or personal commitment to the church.
Affiliate Members. Members of other United Methodist churches who want to keep their membership in their home church but now participate in the life of our church.
Associate Members. Members of other denomination who want to keep their membership in their home church but now participate in the life of our church.
