Engage: Membership at Hilliard UMC

Join us for a time of fellowship and worship, with the option to join the church if you’d like.

NEXT ENGAGE: Sunday, May 16, 1-2:30pm on Zoom.

We will meet twice on Zoom, 90 minutes each. At the first session on May 16, the second session will be scheduled by those in attendance, at a time that works for everyone.

Membership is simply about taking another step toward being fully engaged in this community of faith, claiming your commitment to this place, taking a next step in your journey of faith, and responding to your invitation from God to help us be who God calls us to be!

There is zero pressure to join, just an opportunity to do so if it’s the next right step for you.

Content for the event will be led by pastors and staff, and it will include:

  • The membership covenant. Because spiritual practices help us connect with God, open our hearts to God, and grow in our faith, we invite all members to commit to seeking God and growing toward the regular practice of these spiritual habits:
    • 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%).
  • Sharing: What has led you to this place in your spiritual journey? And what’s your next step of faith?
  • Unpacking and discussion of the questions that new members are asked when joining a United Methodist congregation (click bolded type for link to PDF, if you want to see the questions ahead of time).
  • Remembrance of your baptism.
  • Celebration of Holy Communion.
