To Our Guests


We’re glad you’re here! You may be new in the Shoals area or a “regular attender,” but don’t feel alone. We frequently have many guests in our services, and we find many have questions about being involved at Woodmont and joining our church. That’s great, because we have some answers!


When and how do I join? At the close of every service a song is sung and the pastor stands facing the congregation. Walk to the front at this time and the pastor will meet you. Attendance in the Membership Information Class (MIC) or Children’s Information (CHIC) is required for membership. MIC is taught regularly by our Pastor. Attendance at the class may be before or after you walk to the front to unite with our church.


Membership Information Class (MIC) A membership information class is offered every 2 - 3 months and is taught by our Pastor Chad Hess and Associate Pastor Steve Thompson. The class is offered on Sunday afternoon and includes a snack supper and childcare. Informations about our beliefs, church history, and how you can be a part of our church are presented. For more information contact Steve Thompson at


When do you have baptism? Baptism is usually arranged a few weeks after coming forward in a service.


May I be a Sunday morning class member and not a church member? Of course. Some are. Our Sunday morning classes are called Bible Study Connection classes. These help you connect to God, to His Word, and each other! This is not church membership, but is an excellent way to get to know some of “the Woodmont Folks” and more about our church.


Are there different ways to join? Yes. (1) By professing faith in Jesus Christ and following Him in water baptism. (2) By transferring your “letter” from another Southern Baptist Church. (3) By your statement of faith in Christ that you are a believer and acknowledgement that you have had a conversion experience and have been baptized by immersion after your salvation experience. If I have other questions, is there someone with whom I can talk? Certainly. Our pastor and staff would love to share with you more about our church and ministries. Often, of course, you can get a lot of information from a friend who is already a member.
