Adult Baptism

Teens and adults may present themselves for baptism and make their public profession of faith at the same time. We ask that they first complete our Engage Class for new members and meet briefly with one of our pastors. Adults and teens may be baptized by sprinkling in our traditional services or by sprinkling or immersion in our contemporary service.

If you are interested in being baptized, please use the form below:

    Members of Buncombe Street Methodist Church or children of members may use our worship spaces for weddings and receptions. In order for a wedding to be placed on the church calendar, these persons must have been members of the church for at least one (1) year. The spaces available include:

    • Sanctuary (capacity – 800)
    • Memorial Chapel (capacity – 200)
    • Sisk Hall  (receptions only)

    Brides should submit a Wedding Information Sheet to request a BSMC wedding. If the wedding is placed on the church calendar, you will be contacted with next steps.

    Please do not submit a Wedding Information Sheet unless you meet the membership requirement and are prepared to abide by all aspects of the Wedding Policy.


    It is our honor to assist families, members, ministers, and funeral homes in planning and conducting comforting, reverent funerals at the church. For more information or questions on planning a funeral at Buncombe Street, contact Rev. Grover Putnam.
