We warmly welcome you to the vibrant and dynamic community of faith that is St. Andrew’s. We hope that you will share in our great tradition of joyful worship, sacred hospitality and committed service to the Greensboro community. All are welcome in this community of discipleship, diversity and formation, where young and old, newcomers and long-time parishioners are on the journey of faith together.
Anyone who has received the sacrament of Holy Baptism is a member of the universal Church. Our participation in the wider body of Christ is our first commitment, and we welcome all to be regular participants in the worship, fellowship and life of St. Andrew’s.
If you wish to become a formal member of St. Andrew’s, the Canons (rules) of the Episcopal Church provide several ways to do this. Indeed, we hope you will consider doing so, because the more one integrates his or her whole life into a community of Christian discipleship, the more he or she will experience the breadth of our faith tradition.
There are three ways to become a member of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church:
1. You may be baptized here.
2. If you were baptized at or you hold your membership at another Episcopal Church you can simply contact our church office and ask to transfer your “letter of membership” to St. Andrew’s. We will take it from there: we will contact your church of origin and transfer your membership here. You can email Susan Frye at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 336-275-1651, ext. 1.
3. If you were baptized in another Christian Tradition (Methodist, Presbyterian, Roman Catholic, etc.) then simply let us know when and where you were baptized (if you know) and that you desire to become a member. We will follow up with your former church, if possible. Contact Susan Frye at email@example.com and she will begin the process.
If you come from another Christian tradition, you may choose to be received or confirmed by a bishop. We hope you will, learning about the church through confirmation classes held on a regular basis. Our bishop visits St. Andrew’s annually though the date changes from year to year. Please contact our Rector, the Rev. Ginny Inman, for more information.
We will share details on the next bishop’s visit and confirmation class when they become available. If you are interested in knowing more about membership at St. Andrew’s, please don’t hesitate to contact your clergy. We love to field questions about the Episcopal Church!
We hope that membership in the Episcopal Church will lead you to a deeper experience of God, a more vivid life of faith, and the joy of Christian fellowship.
