How to Join LUMC

We welcome your membership in Lawrenceburg United Methodist Church. You may unite with us in one of several ways. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

By Profession of Faith and Baptism

If you are not a baptized Christian, our pastors will be happy to discuss the meaning of the Sacrament with you and baptize and confirm you into the Christian faith as you profess your faith in Jesus Christ. Please contact Pastor Errol at 502-819-2492 to set up an appointment.

By Transfer From Another United Methodist Church

Simply mark the Communication Card – “Become a member of LUMC” along with a phone number or email address. The church will then get in touch with you. During this process if you so choose, LUMC will be glad to write to your former church regarding the details of your transfer.

By Transfer From Another Christian Denomination

The process is very similar to transferring from another United Methodist Church, Since you are already baptized and confirmed, these steps will be repeated. You will be asked to take the vows taken by all members of the United Methodist Church: “Will you be loyal to the United Methodist Church and uphold it by your prayers, your presence, your gifts, your service and your witness?”

Transfer of Your Membership From a Denomination That Will Not Accept Your Transferring Across Denominational Lines

All who profess faith in Jesus Christ are welcome at LUMC. Your baptism is accepted in the United Methodist Church. You will be recognized in a process called “renewal of vows.”

How to “Join” without “Joining”

If you are a United Methodist whose membership is in another city or state and you wish to retain membership in your “home” church, you can become an “Affiliate” member of LUMC . This grants you pastoral oversight, fellowship and participation in all ways at LUMC. You will not be counted on LUMC’s membership roll, but will be counted at your “home” church. We will write your “home” church informing them of your Affiliate member status at LUMC.

Members of other Christian denominations who wish to retain their membership relationship with that denomination may elect to be “Associate” members under the same conditions.
