Church Membership

Join Myers Park Pres

Membership in the Church of Jesus Christ is a joy and a privilege. It is also a commitment to participate in Christ’s mission. A faithful member bears witness to God’s love and grace and promises to be involved responsibly in the ministry of Christ’s Church.

Myers Park Presbyterian Church (MPPC) is a dynamic community of faith with more than 4,500 members. We encourage every member of our congregation to be actively involved in worship, study, service and stewardship, and to be focused on building open and genuine relationships. We strive to live out God’s transforming work, together, as the body of Christ.

How do I join?

We’re so glad that you’re interested in joining Myers Park Presbyterian Church! New Member classes are held on four Sunday mornings per year.

Starting at 8:45 a.m., you and others interested in joining will meet to talk about what it means to be a member of a Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) – specifically Myers Park Pres! You then attend the worship service of your choice (Celebrate or Sanctuary) at 10 a.m. After worship, we all come back together to share a light lunch with members of Session and clergy.

At the end of the class, you will be invited to answer the questions for membership and join the church in one of the following ways:

  • Reaffirmation of faith (baptized, but not recently active in a church)
  • Transfer of Letter (recently active in another church)
  • Profession of Faith (never baptized)

If you have never been baptized, we will coordinate with you to schedule your baptism on or before the Sunday you join.
