You can join almost any Sunday in the year, with few exceptions. We also have two Membership Sundays in the fall and spring designated for those who are more comfortable joining in a larger group rather than by themselves.
You can join our church family through profession of faith (if you have never been baptized or baptized but never joined a church), transfer from another denomination or transfer from another Methodist church.
If you are considering becoming a member of First United Methodist, our Evangelism Office will be happy to help you with membership, orientation and small group opportunities. Here you will find out how to make First United Methodist your church home!
A Closer Look Membership Class
Our A Closer Look is a class for new members, visitors, and for those who want to discover more about the mission and ministry of First United Methodist of Marietta. If you are considering membership with the church, we hope this course will help you make that decision.
You are invited to come to one or all the sessions. Each session will meet on Sunday mornings, beginning in March and September annually, 10:10-11 a.m., in the Parlor. There will be signs directing you to the Parlor, Room 218, just around the corner from the Sanctuary.
