New Member Orientation

Interested in learning more about Hilliard United Methodist Church?

With no obligation to become a church member, come meet some other new people and learn about:

  • who we are as a church (Vision & Mission statements, values, and beliefs),
  • what you can expect from us, and
  • the membership covenant. We ask all members to commit to growing toward the regular practice of these spiritual habits, because they help us connect with God and become more like Jesus:
    • pray daily / worship weekly
    • be in a small group / continue your Christian formation
    • serve within the walls of the church
    • serve beyond the walls of the church
    • give proportionately of your income, working toward a tithe (10%).

Offered several times a year (two sessions each). Free childcare for children up to age 11 is provided by paid, trained staff who have passed a background check.
