Whether or not your church background is Presbyterian,

we welcome you to our congregation!

God calls us to worship Him, to be in regular fellowship with one another, and to serve. You do not need to be a member of our church in order to do any of these – but many have found that formally uniting with a local church body is a commitment that brings to them a sense of belonging, the challenge to grow in their faith, and an opportunity to use their talents and experience in the service of God. It’s exciting to be part of something so much bigger than we are!

We welcome our new members into our church family by profession of faith, reaffirmation of faith in Jesus Christ, or by transfer or certificate from another church.

Membership Option 1: Full Membership

You may join First Presbyterian Church as a full member through:

• Profession of Faith – if you have never been a member of a Christian church but wish to do so now

• Reaffirmation of Faith – if a previous membership has lapsed and you wish to renew your vows with this congregation

• Letter of Transfer – if you wish to transfer a current membership from another congregation

Membership Option 2: Affiliate Membership

A popular option is to join as an affiliate member, which allows you to formally unite with our congregation while retaining your full membership in your home church. Affiliate members are entitled to all the rights of membership except voting in congregational meetings and holding office. Through our many affiliate members, First Presbyterian Church of Fort Myers enjoys ties of affection with many other Christian faith communities throughout the United States.

Throughout the year we offer Inquirer Classes that allow you to learn more about membership and being Presbyterian. If you are interested in membership you may indicate your interest on the Friendship pad on Sunday morning during worship, or you may email us at info@fpcfortmyers.org to sign up for the next Inquirer’s Class that prepares you for membership. You can also call the church office 239-334-2261 to let us know of your interest.
