Join St. Thomas Episcopal Church
Are you interested in becoming a Member of St. Thomas Episcopal Church?
You may join St. Thomas by being baptized here or by registering your baptism at St. Thomas if you have already been baptized in another Christian church, regardless of denomination.
We encourage all baptized persons to be confirmed, and most Episcopalians choose to be confirmed.
If you have already been confirmed in the Roman Catholic Church or the Lutheran Church (ELCA), then you will be received into the Episcopal Church in a formal liturgy with the bishop. In addition, those who have been confirmed or received in the Episcopal Church may choose to reaffirm their faith before the bishop. We offer classes for teenagers and adults to prepare for confirmation, reception, and reaffirmation.
If you want to learn more about confirmation, reception, or reaffirmation at St. Thomas, please speak to a member of the clergy or contact the church office. If you have been confirmed or received at another Episcopal church and you wish to join St. Thomas, we will ask your former parish to transfer your letters of baptism and confirmation to St. Thomas.
If you are interested in being baptized and/or being confirmed, please let us know by filling out this online form!

You will be able to vote in our vestry elections and in other business matters if you are over 16 years of age and:
- you are confirmed or received at St. Thomas
