What it Means
Today, many people associate the term membership with paying dues, meaningless rituals, silly rules and handshakes, and having your name on some dusty roll.
At Park Hill UMC, being a member has a different image. It does not refer to a cold induction into an institution or joining a religious club. Being a member of Park Hill means becoming a vital part of a living, growing family, in which we all share joys and responsibilities with other followers of Christ. You are a part of a vibrant family that cares for each other in good times and bad times.
Together we reach out to others in the community.
Members have a sense of ownership. We talk about “OUR” church. We are contributors, not just consumers.
Members are connected to other believers in Jesus Christ. We have a sense of identity, accountability and commitment. It’s not just about believing, it’s about belonging.
The leadership of Park Hill realizes that people who join this church come from all sorts of religious backgrounds, including no religion at all. Jesus was in the business of accepting people right where they were, and we take the same attitude. We are so glad that you are here. Come, join our family!
