How to become a Member

Transfer of Membership
If you wish to transfer your membership from another church, please complete the Membership Information Form. Be sure to provide the name and address of the church where your membership is currently held. We will request the transfer, along with baptism and/or confirmation dates, and send you a letter of acknowledgement once the transfer is complete.

Baptism
The basic requirement for membership in any Episcopal Church is baptism. The Episcopal Church recognizes all Christian baptisms regardless of denomination. If you wish to be baptized at Christ Church, please contact Jennifer Hamm at  or 704-333-0378, or visit this page for details.

Adult Confirmation
Confirmation is the laying on of hands by an Episcopal Bishop in a service of worship. Those confirmed in another Episcopal congregation may request to have their letter of membership transferred from the previous congregation. Those confirmed by a Bishop in the Catholic, Lutheran or Eastern Orthodox Church may be received by an Episcopal Bishop in a worship service.

Christ Church offers a ten-week Adult Confirmation and Inquirers Class on Sunday mornings beginning in late winter each year. These classes are for any adult who wishes to be confirmed in the Episcopal Church, for any confirmed Episcopalian who wishes to learn the basics of faith, and for anyone who simply wants to explore what we believe. The classes explore the basics of Christianity and the Episcopal Church. Registration is required. The annual confirmation service with one of our Bishops usually takes place in the late spring or early summer. For more information, visit this page or contact Jenny Beaumont, 704-714-6945.

Eighth Grade Confirmation
Our eighth grade students typically participate in confirmation classes as a group beginning each fall. For more information, contact Betsy Parkhurst at or 704-714-6972.
