How do I become a member of The United Church of Canada?
One becomes a member of The United Church of Canada through a local congregation. Although people are not required to be members of Killarney United Church to be involved in our worship and in most areas of our congregational life, many people come to a point in their spiritual journey when they wish to make a commitment not only to the local faith community, but through it to the larger denominational family, which for us is The United Church of Canada. Some at Killarney have made this commitment as adolescents through "Confirmation." Some adults have "transferred" their membership from other United Church congregations, and some, from various backgrounds, have made this commitment through "Profession of Faith." Adults who were not baptized as children may become members through adult Baptism. "Profession of Faith" and adult Baptism are not as imposing as they sound! The United Church of Canada admits as members those who make "a credible profession of faith." That could be as complex as the Nicene Creed or as simple as "Jesus loves me, this I know..." Mostly, those who want to be members of Killarney United (and The United Church of Canada) are those who have found a spiritual “home” - who have felt blessed, challenged and nurtured in the things of faith and the Spirit - among us.
