Who can join?
Membership is open to all who confess Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and desire to make FPC their church home.
How can I join?
To join First Presbyterian, a prospective member should attend On Ramp, a Sunday School class for anyone who wants to join First Presbyterian or learn more about the life, history and beliefs of the Presbyterian church and this congregation. The class is led by Senior Pastor Rev. Tony Sundermeier and is comprised of the following parts:
- A discussion of your Faith Journey and what led you here to First Pres.
- The history of the Presbyterian Church and the history of First Pres.
- The meaning of Membership – what we hope you will contribute to this church community and, in turn, what you are seeking from your church home.
On Ramp meets for three consecutive Sundays during the Sunday School hour. The upcoming schedule is below. If you have any questions or to sign up for upcoming classes, contact Stephanie Lane, who leads the Connections Ministry.
After completing the On Ramp class, you will be invited to attend a Session dinner where you will meet the current Ruling Elders of the church. Following your introduction, you will be asked the qualifying questions of membership by one of the Associate Pastors, and then the Elders will vote on your membership. You will be introduced to the Congregation on a Sunday morning following this dinner.
