How does one become a member of All Saints’?
That is very simple. Call our Senior Warden Carol Lee at 479-264-8018, or email her at email@example.com and she will help you figure out what is best way to proceed.
1. Baptism: The Episcopal Church considers that anyone who has been baptized with water in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, in any church or denomination, has been validly baptized. Those who have not been baptized become members of the church through baptism.
2. Transfer: Those who have already been baptized become members by transferring from another church or denomination.
3. Confirmation: Adult members become confirmed members through the sacrament of confirmation. Confirmation involves prayers and the laying on of hands by an Episcopal Bishop.
It is not necessary to be confirmed to be an adult member in good standing at All Saints. However, confirmation is required for eligibility to vote and to serve in almost all elected offices in the church, and some appointed offices as well.
