Newcomer Classes/Events

Are you interested in becoming a member of HPCUMC?  We are offering a new and exciting series of classes intended to help you engage in membership and mission.  Each new member session will consist of three classes as follows:

Welcome Lunch in the Welcome Center
Sunday, October 16, 2016, 12:15 – 1:00 pm

A chance to get to know Pastors Cathy and Doug Johns and for them to connect with you!  Share your faith story and find out how the membership process works.

Spiritual Gifts Class (Welcome Center)
Sunday, October 23, 2016, 4:00 – 5:30 pm

Take a spiritual gifts evaluation and work with lay leaders Sheila Brown and Diane Weaver to identify your spiritual strengths.  Learn where and how you can serve at HPCUMC and the greater community to best utilize your gifts.

United Methodist 101 (Welcome Center)
Sunday, November 6, 2016, 4:00 – 5:30 pm

Reception of New Members
Sunday, November 20, 2016, 9:30 am

The classes do not have to be completed all at one time; for example, you could take the Spiritual Gifts class in Winter 2016 and wait until Spring 2017 to complete the United Methodist 101 class.  The important thing is to attend all three classes for maximum fellowship and learning!
