2018 United Methodist Videos

 

One way to hear and see the story of the people of The United Methodist Church is through video features. In 2018, we published videos about truly inspiring acts from church members, along with stories related to our Wesleyan tradition and history. We also featured a video series with United Methodist clergy answering questions about the basic teachings and concepts of our faith.

Inspiration
Recycled wedding dresses are used to create Recycled Bridal Gowns for Lost Babies
One of our most touching pieces in 2018 was about a ministry based in Atlanta that recycles bridal gowns for families who have babies die. It’s a great example of caring individuals seeing a need and finding a way to help.
 

 

Wesleyan Tradition

Beliefs

​History
Missionary Susan Angeline Collins started a school in Angola.African American Woman’s Incredible Life as a Methodist Missionary
In 2018, we celebrated the first 50 years of The United Methodist Church, but Methodism in the U.S. dates back to 1736. UMC.org has many stories related to the church’s rich history. One favorite from 2018 was a profile of Susan Angeline Collins, a remarkable woman and devoted missionary who served the church in the early 1900s. More history

We hope you will take time to watch the videos we share on UMC.org. You can also find United Methodist videos on our YouTube channel and on Instagram.
