Membership

Visitors

All are welcome at St. Martin’s! You don’t have to be a member to participate in worship services, classes, activities, or mission work. Please fill out a newcomer’s form when you join us for worship so we’ll know who you are. And once you get to know us, we hope you’ll consider becoming a member. Because there’s a place in our church community for you!


Members

There are two kinds of members at St. Martin’s:

Baptized Members

  • Babies and children baptized at their parents’ request

  • Adults of any age who ask to be baptized here

  • Adults baptized elsewhere who join St. Martin’s by letter of transfer

Confirmed Members 

  • Those baptized as babies and children who wish to confirm their baptism as adults

  • Adults who have never been baptized who wish to be baptized and confirmed at the same time

Which type of membership should you, as a new member, choose? The choice is a highly personal one. Adults may join as baptized members and consider confirmation at a later date or join as confirmed members right away. Both baptized and confirmed members make annual pledges to support the ministry of the church.

To learn more about becoming a member of St. Martin’s, talk with a member of our clergy staff or parish administrator at pmelton@stmartins.org.
