We invite your participation and membership in Monroeville United Methodist Church.
You may unite with us in one of several ways, as outlined below. Regardless of the way you come to join our church, part of the process of membership in Monroeville United Methodist Church will be your participation in an orientation with others in a New Members Class that is led by the new member orientation team and pastors.
You are invited to unite with the MUM family of faith.
We receive new members two or three times a year with new member orientation prior to reception Sundays.
Our next reception of new members will be Sunday, April 15 at the 9:15 worship service. Orientation sessions are scheduled for Sunday, April 8 at 11:00 a.m. This session will be led by our Lay Leader, Susan Burkett to share the opportunities available at MUM. The second orientation session will be Monday, April 9 at 7 p.m., led by Pastor Ed Schoeneck on the general United Methodsit Church formation. Child care will be provided by reservation only.
Simply mark the attendance registration sheet at a Sunday service "Wish to Join" and the minister will get in touch with you. You may request that we write for your letter of transfer. it is not necessary for you to write your former church; we will handle the details for you.
This process is very much like the one above. Since you are already baptized and confirmed, these steps will not be repeated. You will be asked to take the one vow taken by all members of the United Methodist Church:
"Will you be loyal to the United Methodist Church and uphold it by your prayers, your presence, your gifts and your service?"
If you are a United Methodist temporarily living in the Monroeville area and you wish to retain membership in your "home" church, you can become an Affiliate Member of Monroeville United Methodist Church. This grants you pastoral care, fellowship and participation at Monroeville United Methodist Church. You will be counted on the rolls of your "home" church.
The invitation is to all who are truly sorry for their sins and intend to lead a new life.
