Explore Church Membership
Pastors Dale and Sherrie will be leading a series of six Sunday morning classes called A Disciple’s Path, designed to help explore and examine the meaning of discipleship and membership at High Street UMC. Please know that by signing up, you are not automatically deciding for membership – that decision will be made by each person at the end of the class.
A Disciple’s Path will be held from 9:45 – 10:45 a.m., beginning April 3 and running through May 8. New members will be welcomed on Pentecost Sunday, May 15.
We realize that some who attend the 9:45 worship service may also be interested. You may choose to attend a different service through the course of the study, or contact us with your interest so we can make an alternative plan.
Contact Pastor Dale, Pastor Sherrie or the church office to sign up. We look forward to learning together.
