St. George Island United Methodist Church was blessed to welcome a number of new members to the church during the service on July 30, 2017. Some joined as full members and others as associate or affiliate members, but all share a deep commitment to serving the Lord.
Whereas full members come by transfer of confession of faith, affiliate members are members of another Methodist church, while associate members are members of another denomination. Affiliate and associate members have all the rights and privileges of full members with the exception of serving in some of the leadership positions as defined in the Book of Discipline.
You can learn more about the categories of church membership at the Pastor’s Class held the fourth Sunday of each month after the Fellowship Brunch.
