You are invited to become a member of Grace!
After the sermon, Rev. Bridgeforth offers the invitation to become a Christian and a member of our congregation. If you feel motivated by God to accept the invitation, while the choir sings, come forward to the altar area. Members of the congregation will join you as a sign of support and encouragement.
A new members class is offered before the membership becomes official. Visitors may attend inquirer’s class to learn more about the United Methodist Church and our faith community before making the decision to join.
