Becoming a Member

We would love to be your church family! If you want to learn more about Birmingham First,  join us for Discover First. We believe that any baptized person is baptized into the “whole” church. Any person who has been confirmed or joined a church has joined the “whole” church. The local church is where we are fed and challenged to grow as disciples. There is a place for you at Birmingham First.

Join our Senior Clergy for a one-session class that will provide you with the knowledge, resources and relationships needed to take your next steps here at Birmingham First. Associate clergy and Birmingham First ministry leaders will also attend. The session will be relaxed and informative as you learn more about The United Methodist Church and Birmingham First. Near the end of the session, there will be a short joining ceremony for those who decide to become members.

We’ll help you get connected to our church family and encourage you on your faith journey.

Discover First will meet for approximately 2 hours each session 5-6 times a year. Childcare will be available with a reservation.
