Next Steps

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.

Step 1

Attend Services

Saturday or Sunday; traditional or contemporary. Even weekday services. We encourage you to find what feeds and challenges you.

Step 2

Complete a Data Form

Sharing your contact information allows St. Mary’s to know more about you and to communicate with you. Our office is diligent in keeping your information organized and confidential. Click Here to open the form.

Step 3

Attend a New Members Class & Take Alpha

Periodically we offer new member classes for those who have recently joined St. Mary’s. This is a chance to meet the clergy, ask questions, and connect with other new members. Alpha is an exciting course in Christianity offered every fall.

Step 4

Seek Baptism, Confirmation, Reaffirmation, and/or Reception

Baptism is full initiation into the Christian community. Confirmation is a mature affirmation and a commitment to Jesus Christ through the Episcopal tradition. Reaffirmation is reaffirming your mature commitment to Jesus Christ. Reception is being received into the Episcopal Church if you were confirmed in another sacramental tradition. 

Step 5

Find a Ministry and/or Small Group

All Christians are called to ministry. We support one another through fellowship, learning, and prayer. Use our website to find your place in the St. Mary’s community. Life Groups are always open to newcomers. 

Step 6


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 commitment to the vision of the church. We believe that giving is a key component to our spiritual formation. 

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.
