The history, heritage, beliefs, mission and culture of the United Methodist Church for anyone – newcomer or longtime member – who wants to know what’s distinctive about being a United Methodist Christian. We’ll explore the special gifts of theology and witness that the Wesleyan tradition brings to the Church universal, how we got where we are today and how our distinctive emphases are still needed in the 21st Century church. No matter what happens this summer, or at or after General Conference in 2024, this bedrock of all groups in Methodism will still be relevant! This class is one of the core Lay Servant Ministries classes, but everyone is welcome! Participants must obtain the book Living Our Beliefs: The United Methodist Way by Bishop Kenneth Carder (it is not included in the course fee). Other materials will be downloaded.
