Are you interested in becoming a member of the United Methodist Church of Johnstown? Or, maybe you’re already a member but want a refresher about what it means to be a Methodist. Just curious? Pastor Jeremy is offering a new member class  for Fall 2020 running 4 weeks in October. There will be an in-person (limit 9) and online option for participating. There is no obligation after taking the class, but you will have an opportunity to join the church if you wish. To sign up for the class, click here.


So that our class time can focus on more interactivity and discussion, we ask that you complete the following items outside of class:

  • Before our first meeting meeting please complete the Spiritual Gifts survey found on this page.
  • Before our third meeting, please listen to the two-part talk (found below), which offers an overview of church history.
