Joining Foundry

Congregation Entering ChurchAs a United Methodist congregation, membership is not required to participate in ministries, mission, or community at Foundry Church. Members and non-members alike are full and active participants in the breadth and depth of mission and community here at Foundry. We believe, though, that membership is a serious covenantal promise in which individuals and the congregation come together to invest our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness as we seek to love God, love each other, and change the world.  

While membership isn’t for everyone—and doesn’t have to be—our New Member Orientation process provides a way for those interested to dig deep into the theological and historical background of The United Methodist Church, to build community with others interested in joining Foundry Church, to consider the covenantal promises made in the vows of membership, and learn more about how Foundry Church and your life and passion intersect. This process consists of two parts:

  1. A Pastor’s Coffee which provides participants an opportunity to learn more about our New Member’s class, A Disciple’s Path, ask questions about life at Foundry Church, and learn more about what being a United Methodist is all about. This is where you will have the opportunity to decide whether or not membership is right for you, and to take the next step of joining A Disciple’s Path.
  2. A Disciple’s Path is a six-week class offered periodically throughout the year for those wishing to join Foundry. Those wishing to join must be present at five of the six class sessions.
