I'm New

Welcome to Turner Memorial AME Church! Whether you've recently joined the Turner Family, are contemplating joining our family, or want to be a part of a local faith community, there is a place for you to connect.

What to Expect 

Turner Memorial AME Church will proclaim, nurture, and experience the love and justice of God through vibrant worship, faithful proclamation, relevant teaching, transformative ministries, radical hospitality, community development, and sacrificial service.

How to Join

If you have discerned that you are ready to be a part of the Christian community at Turner Memorial AME Church, there are several ways to join: 

  • Profession of faith: an initial commitment to Jesus Christ through the sacrament of baptism*
  • Reaffirmation of faith: a reaffirmation of your commitment to Jesus Christ
  • Affiliated membership: you are affiliated with a local church but may be residing in the DC, Maryland, or Virginia area for an extended period 
  • Transfer of membership: you were a member of an AME or Methodist church elsewhere and would like to join our congregation 

* If you have been baptized at any point in your life, it is not necessary to be baptized again.

Membership Process

Persons who have recently joined this Christian community are assigned class leaders that provide spiritual support and encouragement. New members attend orientation sessions before being officially welcomed into full fellowship.

If you're contemplating joining our family and would like to speak with someone, please contact our office (301)408-0750.
