We welcome you to worship with us through the fellowship of our body of Christ. Just as each body is a wonderful collection of different and necessary parts, we want you to become a part of our family. We are so excited you are interested in learning more about us. When you visit the church, we hope you discover what we already know, and that is that the Spirit of God is doing amazing things at First Presbyterian Church. From all kinds of vibrant ministries to eye-opening Biblical discoveries to some of the most caring people you will ever meet, First Presbyterian Church is the place for you. If you are interested in exploring membership here at First Presbyterian Church, please talk with any of our ushers, or our Pastor, Hanna Peterson-Shearer, following worship on Sunday morning. You may also give Pastor Hanna a call during the week, as she will be happy to respond to any questions you may have. You are welcome to attend church and any of our functions before becoming a member. We hope that you will want to become a part of the FPC family. See you soon!

Membership has its privileges!

As a member of First Presbyterian Church, you have a voice and a vote in the decisions of the church.  You are also eligible to serve on our boards:  Session, Deacons, and Trustees.  You can volunteer and serve as a Christian Educator or Small Group leader.  You can be involved in the life of the connectional church in serving at the Eastern Oklahoma Presbytery.

The following three steps are designed to make becoming a member of First Presbyterian a clear process.

STEP ONE

Expressing Interest

Please feel free to speak to one of the Pastors or Ushers (have name tags on) just outside the Sanctuary on any Sunday morning after worship service or an Elder in the church office to express your interest in joining.

STEP TWO

Attend a New Member Class

New Member Classes are offered in the Spring and in the Fall each year. These classes are presented in a casual and relaxed setting and are designed to help newcomers make connections with other new members and the leadership of the church.  These courses focus on:

  1. What it means to be a Christian.
  2. What it means to be Presbyterian.
  3. What it means to be a member at First Presbyterian Church, Bartlesville.

STEP THREE

Public Profession of Faith in Worship

Four questions are asked of every person who joins a Presbyterian Church.

  1. Do you reject the ways of sin and evil - ways that separate you from the love of God?
  2. Do you trust in Jesus Christ and accept Him as your Lord and Savior?
  3. Do you promise, relying upon the Holy Spirit, that you will endeavor to live as becomes a follower of Jesus Christ?
  4. Do you promise to be a faithful member of this congregation, sharing in its ministry through your prayers and your gifts, your study, and your service?

It is our desire and mission to discern and develop the Spiritual gifts given to each member of the Body of Christ at First Presbyterian Church and connect those gifted individuals to the unique opportunities God is calling each of us to serve.
