How to Join Us!

We are glad that you might be interested in joining with us at First Presbyterian Church. One of the things that is required is attending our “inquirer’s class,” which functions as an introduction to First Presbyterian’s beliefs, practices, and stories. We offer this class several times a year, usually on a Saturday morning in the spring and fall semesters.    


After going through the inquirer’s class, if you still would like to join with us, a pastor and an elder will meet with you to hear your profession of faith in Jesus Christ. The final step is to meet with the church’s elders and affirm the membership vows, which emphasize a commitment to the Christian faith and discipleship in the context of First Presbyterian Church. If you are interested in more information about joining our church, please contact Rev. Jim McCarthy, our senior minister, at .


If you have attended the Inquirer's Class and have scheduled a date to join, please complete the Membership Application below and return it to Rev. Jim McCarthy or to Tracy Ross in the church office. You can also scan and email your completed form to . Please note that if you are a married couple, each spouse needs to complete a separate form.
