Preparing for Membership

What does it mean to belong to a church? Whether you have worshiped with us in person at Fifth Avenue and 55th Street, or you have met us through online worship, we invite you to consider uniting with our congregation through membership.

If you are interested in membership at Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church, please take a moment to fill out this form. We’d be delighted to include you in our family of faith. If you have additional questions, please reach out to

To help you plant deeper roots here, join us for a Believing & Belonging New Member Class. Led by the Rev. Sarah A. Speed and Ashley Gonzalez, director of engagement, these classes focus on getting to know one another, learning about the history and mission of this church, and understanding more about the Presbyterian tradition.

We offer classes in person as well as on Zoom. You don’t have to be a local to belong here! Check out our schedule below and register here for the class that works for you.
