Are you thinking of becoming a member of the Crawford family? Or would like you like more information on membership? Great! You’re in the right place.
Where Can I Find Out About Membership?
Everything you need to know about Crawford Memorial United Methodist Church can be found in a Membership Information Session. In the class, the Pastor will guide you through an informational packet about what our church has to offer and how you can become a part of our church family. In a relaxed atmosphere, you will have the opportunity to meet church members and other guests, ask questions, and enjoy light refreshments. Sessions are held on select Sundays between the 8:30 am and 10:45 am services – a schedule is posted on the bulletin board in the main hallway.
What Is Involved In Membership?
Each new member is assigned a sponsor. The sponsor guides you through the process and introduces you to other members of the church. In essence, they are your liaison as you get to know everyone. Then, two to four times a year, we set aside time in a regular Sunday service to welcome new members. It is a short ceremony, much like a baptism, and your sponsor stands with you as you join the church.
Do Members Get Special Privileges?
Simply, no. All are welcome and invited to participate in all services, activities, committees, and missions associated with Crawford. Membership is a personal way to make a commitment to yourself and to God.
