How do I become a member?
People often ask how to join Christ Church and what membership means: Membership at Christ Church is recognition of a mutual commitment between the member and the church. There are three steps to become a member of Christ Church:
1. Complete a membership form (with basic information such as your name, contact information, church background) and submit it to the church office. Download a Membership Form.
2. Participate in the life of the church!
3. Become a “giver of record,” that is, support the parish with a financial gift of any amount. Most members choose to fill out a pledge form, which is an estimate of their support each year. Learn more about pledging.
At Christ Church, new membership is recognized with a special liturgy (brief ceremony during a Sunday service) held several times a year.

How do I decide if I want to be an official member?
People considering membership are invited to attend community worship, coffee hours, and any other church activities. The church hosts newcomer parties in the church or members’ homes and annual inquirer’s classes for those wishing to delve deeper, particularly those considering Baptism, Confirmation, or Reception. You may also want to meet with the Rector ([email protected]) or Wardens (elected lay leaders) to address any particular questions or concerns.
