All are welcome at Aldersgate UMC!

Becoming a member of our church is a way for you to show your commitment to Aldersgate and our mission. It means that you are willing to contribute your time, talent, and treasure to the ministries of the church and that you will take an active role in taking our mission to the world: courageously living God’s unconditional love.

Process for Joining Aldersgate UMC

Have you been baptized? We accept all Christian baptisms so you will not have to be baptized again. If you have not been baptized, plans will be made to baptize you before you join the church. Please call the church office and make an appointment to meet with a pastor.

Please fill out our membership form. Click on the link below to download a membership form. Complete it and return it to the receptionist during the week or to the Welcome Desk during times of worship. If you have any questions, please email or call (703) 765-6555.

Aldersgate Membership Information Form

Children under 12 years of age will be able to join after they complete the Confirmation Program when they are in the sixth grade. While they will not be joining at the same time, children are encouraged to go to the front of the sanctuary with parents who are joining to share in the experience and be welcomed as a family to our congregation.

Learn More About Membership

The pastors hold a "Meet the Pastors" gathering several times each year for those considering membership. Those who have already joined Aldersgate are encouraged to attend to learn more about our church and our mission. Be on the lookout for the next meeting on our Upcoming Events page. You may also email for more information.

Please make sure to let us know which Sunday you would like to join. We prefer that people join the church during worship on the second weekend of each month, but another date can be arranged.

Email or call 703-765-6555 for more information.
