Are You Looking For A Church Home?
The First Presbyterian Church of Plymouth, Michigan (FPCP) would like to extend a warm welcome in the name of Christ to all who worship with us. It is our hope that through membership at FPCP, you will find a family of faith where you can grow in your faith and discover a place where you can use your gifts to the glory of God. We encourage you to join with brothers and sisters in faith as you:
- Attend Worship regularly.
- Study the Word of God through Bible study.
- Pray for one another and for the needs of our community, country, and world.
- Give intentionally and generously of your time, talents, and treasure to further God’s kingdom here on earth through His church.
How to Join
As you prayerfully consider your decision to become a member of FPCP, we encourage you to speak to one of the pastors about your decision. They are available to talk with you following any worship service, or you may wish to contact them by phone or email during the week. The church also typically offers a New Members Class twice a year, to persons interested in becoming members of FPCP.
To sign up for the next class, contact the New Member Class Team.
Prospective New Members Classes
New Member classes are offered for adults interested in becoming members of FPCP and who do not have membership in another PC(USA) church. Typically, classes are held on a Sunday afternoon for two hours, two Sundays in a row. Free childcare is available if requested. The New Members are officially received into membership in our Sunday Worship Service the week following the second class.
Our two ministers lead the classes, with assistance from our Membership Committee. Classes focus on the intentional commitment you are making to God by becoming a church member. Additionally, classes focus on “What it means to be a Christian” and “What it means to be a Presbyterian.” A brief history will be presented on the Presbyterian Church and on our own congregation. Theology, Spiritual Growth, and FPCP Staffing and Programs will also be discussed.
Letter of Transfer
If you have been an active member of another Presbyterian (USA) church, you may join FPCP through a Letter of Transfer. It will not be necessary to attend the New Members Class. If you have been an active member of another denomination’s church, in addition to your letter of transfer, we will still require you to attend the class.
If you wish to join but have never been baptized by any denomination at any age in the past, please contact one of the pastors who will work with you to discuss both baptism and membership.
