Church Membership

    Home » Connect » Join the Church We are excited to welcome new members to our congregation at any time! You may join at our monthly Discover the Church class, on Sunday mornings between services and during the week by phone, email, or by filling out the online membership form. You may indicate your desire to join by checking the “Wish to Join” box on your worship registration form. We will follow up with you after that.

    What happens once I decide to join?
    • We will ask you the name and city of the last church where you were a member (whether that was last week or years ago).  If you have never been a member of a church, you simply tell us that and we will record your membership as a Profession of Faith (meaning this is the beginning of you saying “yes” to Christ and the church).
    • We will ask you if you have ever been baptized.  We recognize all baptisms in all Christian denominations and regardless of the method of baptism.
    • If you have never been baptized, we will talk with you about the process of arranging a baptism.  Baptism is the sacrament that accompanies a Profession of Faith.  We will arrange your baptism in any worship service; mid-week here at the church or on a Sunday morning after worship.
    • If you are transferring to our church from another church, we will contact that church by mail and let them know you have joined First United Methodist Church, Grapevine.
    • All new members are asked the question that we have all answered, “Will you be loyal to Christ and uphold the church with your prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness?”
