Membership at St. Mary’s
There has never been a better time to become a member.
It’s not about going to church; it’s about being the church.
You can exercise your gifts and talents in service to God, as you grow in faith.
“How do I become a member at this church?”
This is a question we hear frequently, and it is a wonderful question.
Saturday or Sunday; traditional or contemporary. Even weekday services. We encourage you to find what feeds and challenges you.

Attend a New Members Class and Take Alpha
Each fall and spring we offer a new members course. This is the perfect way to get oriented to the parish. The course meets on four Sundays, with opportunities to meet the clergy and connect with other new folks. Alpha is an exciting course in Christianity offered every fall.
Seek Baptism or Confirmation
Baptism is full initiation into the Christian community. Confirmation is a mature affirmation and a commitment to the Episcopal tradition. If you were confirmed in another denomination, you can seek official reception into the Episcopal Church.
God calls us to offer our “time, talent, and treasure” to God’s work in the world. A pledge to St. Mary’s is also a “vote of confidence” to the parish leadership and vision. Many people say that consistent giving brings joy and a sense of order to their lives.
“Being a Christian is not essentially about joining a church or being a nice person, but about following in the footsteps of Jesus, taking his teachings seriously, letting his Spirit take the lead in our lives, and in so doing helping to change the world from our nightmare into God’s dream.“
– Bishop Michael Curry
