Membership means choosing to belong. At Duke Memorial United Methodist Church, being a member means belonging to our church family, the body of Christ. You are making a commitment to follow Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and also to support this local congregation with your prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.
If you would like to know more about this process and what it might mean for you we would love to talk to you. A great place to start is to talk with Cullen McKenney in the Church office at 919-683-3467 or send him an email.
