Membership

thumb_IMG_0688_1024Those who attend Holy Cross regularly fall into one of the following categories:

Confirmed Communicants Baptized persons who have been confirmed in, or received into the Episcopal Church either by confirmation, reception, or letter of transfer from another Episcopal Church.

Baptized Members All baptized persons, of any age (including children), whose names are enrolled

either by baptism, letter of transfer, or personal request. Adults may be enrolled as Baptized Members,

but still not be Confirmed Communicants.

Associates Persons who are active in the life of this congregation (through worship, giving or program

participation), but their official membership remains elsewhere.

Joining the Episcopal Church of the Holy Cross

There are two ways to become a member of Holy Cross—through baptism and/or a letter of transfer

from your current church.

You do not have to be an Episcopalian to be a member of our parish. Any person who has received the

sacrament of Holy Baptism, whether in this church or in another Christian church, can become a member

of Holy Cross. Those who have been a member of another Episcopal Church or any other Christian

Church may have their membership transferred to Holy Cross.

If you are interested in becoming a member, please contact Wanda May in the church office (828-859-9741, fax: 828-859-9454 or wmay@holycrosstryon.org).  Wanda will forward to you a membership form for you to complete.
