Join Holy Covenant UMC
How to Join Our Church
We would be happy to welcome you as a part of Holy Covenant United Methodist Church of Carrollton. Please complete the form titled “How to Join” found in the Narthex brochure rack and in the church hymnals. During the singing of the last hymn of the worship service, you will be invited to come to the front of the church to be introduced to the congregation and welcomed by the pastors.
You are also invited to contact our Senior Pastor, Rev. Carol Sparks, if you have questions about joining. If you have questions about United Methodism, you can read more here. We also invite you to attend the New Member class on United Methodism held periodically. Here are the ways to join:
By Profession of Faith and Baptism
A person who begins the Christian life does so through baptism, which is a symbol of God’s grace through Jesus Christ. For a young person or an adult, this also is an opportunity to profess one’s faith. If God is leading you to this decision, one of the pastors will be happy to visit with you about this important step in your spiritual life.
By Transfer from Another Denomination
Since you have been baptized into the Christian faith in another denomination, it is not necessary to be re-baptized to celebrate your spiritual growth. You will be asked this question, “As a disciple of Jesus Christ, will you support the United Methodist Church with your prayers, your presence, your gifts, and your service?” The church staff will handle the details of notifying your former church.
By Transfer from Another United Methodist Church
Arrangements will be made to transfer your membership from another United Methodist Church. All of the necessary details will be handled by the church staff.
Affiliate and Associate Membership
If you are a United Methodist whose membership is in another city or state and you wish to retain that membership in your “home” church, you can become an Affiliate Member. This grants you pastoral oversight and full participation in our church, but you will not be added to the church rolls. Members of other Christian denominations may elect to become Associate Members under the same conditions.
