A - Welcome Desk and Campus Map

If you are new to Providence, the Welcome Desk is the place to find all the answers to your questions! Located just inside the main doors of the church, the desk is staffed by friendly volunteers who are ready to help you choose a Sunday School class to visit, direct you to the Sanctuary or Wolfe Fellowship Hall, or help you get a cup of coffee from the Atrium Coffee Bar or the Connect Cafe.

D - How to Join

Membership Process

  1. Attend the Inquirer’s Class of Providence
  2. Participate in the Spiritual Gifts Class
  3. Affirm your Faith and commitment to God, the United Methodist Church and Providence United Methodist Church during worship.

Wherever you are on your spiritual journey with Christ, you are welcome at Providence UMC.

To join Providence, each person must attend the two-session Inquirer’s Class of Providence where you will meet our pastors, and discuss pathways to get involved, grow in your faith and to serve God & others. We will also review expectations of membership and answer any questions you have about Providence UMC. We meet on the first and second Sunday of every month from 9:45 am to 10:45 am in the church parlor. For current dates or for more information, contact Jean Willis.

After taking the Inquirer’s Class of Providence, you are ready to affirm your faith and commitment to God, the United Methodist Church and Providence UMC during worship.

There are three ways to join Providence UMC. If you are currently a member of another church, regardless of denomination, you can join by Transferring your Membership. If you are not currently a member of another church, you can join Providence UMC by Reaffirmation of Faith or by Profession of Faith. Those who join by Reaffirmation of Faith were once a member of a church but are no longer affiliated with one. Those who join by Profession of Faith have never been active in a church or baptized and are now professing their faith to God for the first time through baptism.

For more information about joining Providence UMC contact Jean Willis.
