Becoming a Member

Birmingham First is a community that values your unique journey. 

We invite you to be a part of our welcoming church community at Birmingham First! Explore our ‘Discover First’ sessions, a casual and informative gathering led by our Senior Clergy, where you can learn about The United Methodist Church, Birmingham First, and take the next steps on your faith journey.

Our belief is that every baptized person is a valued member of the broader church community, and joining us is an opportunity for growth and connection. The session, occurring approximately 5-6 times a year, lasts around 2 hours, and we provide childcare with a reservation.

There’s no pressure—just a chance to learn, connect, and, if you choose, become a member through a simple ceremony at the end of the session. Come join us and find your place at Birmingham First, a community that values your unique journey.
