How to Join

Membership at Church of The Redeemer
Welcome to Church of the Redeemer! You do not have to join the parish in a formal way in order to worship, attend classes, participate in activities, and support financially the ministries of the parish, and all persons, adults and children, are always welcome to receive Communion. However, we invite you to consider becoming a member of Church of the Redeemer. There are several ways to do this, please read on.

Becoming a Member of Church of the Redeemer

If you are an Episcopalian:
If you are a member of another Episcopal congregation, or were ever confirmed in an Episcopal Church, you can transfer your membership. Provide our parish office with the name and location of the church and the approximate dates of your membership or, if you were confirmed there, the approximate date of confirmation, and we will send for a letter of transfer, or you may wish to contact your previous parish yourself. (The office has a directory of all Episcopal Churches, with addresses and telephone numbers or you can use the "Church Finder" feature on The Episcopal Church website.)

If you are a member of another Christian denomination:
If you were baptized with water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, in any Christian denomination, you may become a “baptized member” of Church of the Redeemer. Just provide the parish office with your birth date and place and your baptismal date and place.

If you have not been Baptized:
Call the parish office or speak with one of the clergy to arrange a baptism. Baptisms are done at regularly scheduled services on the feast days specified by the Book of Common Prayer (Baptism of Our Lord, Easter Eve, Pentecost, and All Saints) and occasionally on other Sundays or feast days. Anyone baptized at Church of the Redeemer is a “baptized member.”

If you wish to be Confirmed or Received:
The Book of Common Prayer defines Confirmation as “the rite in which we express a mature commitment to Christ, and receive strength from the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of hands by a bishop.” Youth Confirmation classes and adult inquirers’ classes are offered prior to the bishop’s visitation. Any baptized adult, and any baptized youth in eighth grade or higher, is eligible.

Persons who have been confirmed in another denomination by a bishop in the apostolic succession (most often Roman Catholic or Orthodox) are received by the bishop rather than confirmed. The Episcopal Church is also in “full Communion” with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in American and the Moravian Church. Persons from those denominations are also received into The Episcopal Church. Those who have been confirmed or received are classified as “confirmed communicants.” Speak with one of the clergy if you are interested in confirmation or reception.

What is Members Access

Member Access is an online database that integrates with our church records and requires that you log-in as a “user.” It provides our members 24/7 access to their member information. It is a part of our website where we keep information that would not be available to the public. Once registered, you can:

• access restricted areas

• view the church directory

• register for events

• view your contributions and give online

• print directories or mailing labels

• update your own profile with a new address, phone number, email address, or even your family or individual picture. Any changes made will come to the office as a change request and will not be active until approved.



How to Create a Members Access Log In

In order to use these restricted areas, you will need to register as a user. All members who wish to access their information and the restricted areas can create a USERNAME and PASSWORD that are unique to you.

  • Type your first name and last name along with your email address.
  • This online database matches email addresses we have in our database so be sure to use the email we have on file for you. 
  •  Also, your name has to match exactly. For example, if you are in our database as "William" then using "Bill" will not allow you access.
  • You may change your email address once inside.
  • If the information we have on file is incorrect, you will not be able to create a username and password. You can contact us and we will create a profile for you. If we do not have your email in our database, you will not be able to create an account.
