  • Do you promise to serve Christ in His Church by supporting and participating with this congregation in its service of God and its ministry to others to the best of your ability? 
  • Do you submit yourself to the government and discipline of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church and to the spiritual oversight of this Church Session, and do you promise to promote the unity, purity, and peace of the Church?

Church Membership for Youth

Each spring, all ninth graders are encouraged to attend the Youth Membership class (also called Confirmation class), as the first step towards becoming Confirmed members of REPC.  

  1. After completing the class, those students wishing to pursue membership will write out and read their testimony before a Session meeting.
  2. Affirm membership vows before the church Session and congregation.  

If your child or youth is interested in joining the church, please contact Shane Whelan, to find out when the next Youth Membership class will be held.


Baptism opportunities usually occur once a month. Adults interested in membership who have never been baptized will be baptized when they join REPC. Children of adults joining can be baptized as well on Membership Sunday if their parents so choose. Parents who are already members can schedule a baptism for their child(ren) by contacting Janet Freshour.
