Becoming a member is such a great step, and one we don't take lightly. So let's show you the steps we take to complete your membership here at Canton First UMC.
1) You can join from another church. We call this a TRANSFER OF MEMBERSHIP. It is easy and simple. We get the name of your previous church and send them a letter saying we have received you here and to remove your name off their roll.
2) You can unite by PROFESSION OF FAITH. This means you are coming as a new Christian into the church. You don't have any church affiliation and you have not been baptized.
3) After you have joined we ask you to take a CONNECTIONS CLASS. This helps orient you and allows any questions to be answered if you have any.
Connections Class - The LAST SUNDAY OF EACH MONTH, 12:00 p.m. downstairs in Room #119.
Are you connected? Are a church member, visitor, or someone interested in joining the church? We invite you to get connected. Join us as we share the foundation of our Methodist beliefs, what it means to connect your spiritual gifts within the Body of Christ, how to connect in a Sunday School class, Small Group or Life Group, and much more. If you have an questions please feel free to contact our Minister of Family Life, Sherri Juliani at
