MEMBERSHIP PREPARATION

  • Hits: 8727

 Joining the PVUC is possible in several ways:

Profession of Faith - for those who have never been a member of another congregation (if necessary, this may be in conjunction with adult baptism).
 
Reaffirmation of Faith  - if your membership (here or at another congregation) has lapse.
  
Transfer - if you are currently a member of another United Church congregation.
   
Confirmation - usually for teenagers who have been baptized in the United Church and now wish to join as full adult members                 
   
In all situations we will do our best to answer your questions about the practices and policiies of The United Church and the Christian faith generally. We invite you to see exploring membership as an opportunity to deepen your faith, to express your doubts and your visions, and to celebrate your desire to follow Christ within a church community and in the world at large. Membership classes and services to receive new members are usually held in the fall and the spring.
