Welcome New Members! July 2018

We are so excited to welcome new members into the Shalimar UMC family! These persons all attended our July Discover Shalimar class. What was really cool is that all the persons who joined at 8:00 attended the same Discover class. At the end of the class when they started talking about joining the church, they decided to wait for a Sunday when they could all join together. Only 3 of them knew each other before Discover Shalimar.

It's our goal that everyone can feel at home here at Shalimar UMC. No matter who you are, where you are from, what your life story is. This is a place where you can meet God and Grow in your faith. Join us for one of our next Discover Shalimar classes to learn how you can make Shalimar UMC your church home.

Welcome New Members! June 2018

We are excited to welcome Kayla & Colton High and Michael Wilkins into membership of Shalimar UMC.

Kayla and Colton joined at the 11:00 service after Kayla's baptism at the beach on the 9th. Colton comes by transfer. They have only been attending Shalimar UMC a short while, but have quickly found it to be a place they feel at home.

Michael joined at 11:07 after his baptism at the beach, also on the 9th. He has been attending Shalimar UMC for quite a while. He told me that he has wanted to be apart of beach baptisms many times, but always thought about it after the fact. This time, God prompted him in time to come and be baptized. Once baptized, there was no doubt that he wanted to make his participation in Shalimar UMC official.

It is always a joy for us to welcome new people into membership. Our first goal of the church is to bring people into a relationship with Christ and help them profess their faith through baptism. Membership is a more in-depth step in Christian discipleship, promising to further God's Kingdom through the local congregation.

If you're interested in learning more about membership, or how to get involved in the church, please think about joining our Discover Shalimar class. You can check out our next classes here, or fill out this form for more information.
