1) Getting Involved

  • First off, make a point to come to church every Sunday, and when you can't make it, try and get caught up by checking out Rev. Mike's sermon in the "Resources" section of this website.
  • Find a group to join.  We offer many different Bible studies throughout the week and on Sunday mornings.  Ask around or explore this website, and we're sure you'll find one that fits.
  • Look for a way to use your talents or interests.  If you like kids, you could try helping with children's Sunday school or with youth group.  You could also join the worship team, or choir
  • Maybe you just really love helping people so you could try going on a mission trip or helping with love boxes.  Look through the "Help Out" section for all kinds of ideas, and if you think of something you'd like to do that we don't already do just say so!  Chances are you won't be the only one.
  • Don't forget to have fun!  Keep your eye out for group activities and don't be afraid to hang out with church friends outside of church.
  • Like our Facebook page and/or follow us on Twitter to stay in touch.  You can find links way down at the bottom of this page.

2) Learn About Your Faith

  • When you come to worship every Sunday, not only will you learn during the sermon, you'll be surprised how much you learn from the songs, prayers, and general church stuff.
  • Bible studies and Sunday school classes are great places to develop your faith.  Not only do you read parts of the Bible, but you also discuss what you read with other people.  That's two ways to learn about your faith right there!
  • Reading the Bible by yourself is always good too so don't forget about that!  Even if it's just a couple verses a day, some Bible is better than no Bible.  *Hint: If you don't have your own Bible, please let us know.  We'd love to give you one!
  • Ask questions.  Sometimes people think church is where you're supposed to sit down and just listen.  Well, listening is good and all, but asking questions is better!  Call the church office.  Stop the Pastor in the hall.  Ask the church member down the road.

3) Become A Member

  • Becoming a member of the church is a bit more than just being an attender.  Basically, when you become a member, it means you're ready to accept Dwight UMC as your official church family.  Youth can become members by taking confirmation class, but adults become members by saying they want to be one.  If you're interested in becoming a member just get in touch with Rev. Mike.
