God calls us by name, invites us into a relationship with him, and beckons us into His body, the church. God knows our needs: belonging, accountability, growth, love, and encouragement; we get that in His church. We invite you to be part of the St. John’s family, and join our mission: To change lives for God in Christ.
If you would like to know more about becoming a member of St. John the Divine, you may find these common questions and answers helpful:
Q: What does it mean to be a member of St. John the Divine?
A: St. John’s members are committed to growing…… We ask members to pray daily, worship weekly, grow faithfully, serve and give regularly.
Q: How do I become a Christian and a member of St. John the Divine? Is Baptism something that I need to do?
A: The first step in becoming a member of God’s Holy Church is to repent of our sins, and accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior. Baptism then marks the beginning of a new life in Christ, and this is. We invite you to contact one of the clergy to learn about the Sacrament of Baptism, and how to become baptized.
Q. I’ve been a member of another church. How do I become a member here?
A. It’s very simple! Inform one of the clergy or contact Kim Jameson, Director of Membership Development that you would like to be made a member. You will be recorded as a member of St. John the Divine. If your membership is recorded in another Episcopal church, we will request your letter of transfer be sent on your behalf.
