United Methodists are connected 1500x1000 Image by Canva

The Christian life is not a solo venture. As United Methodists, we recognize our connections to God, others and the created world.

We speak different languages, are immersed in various cultures, and sometimes disagree. Yet we worship together, serve together, and learn from one another.

Our global connection empowers us to love and serve God and our neighbors in ways no one of us could do on our own.

United Methodism

Connected in worship and song

The United Methodist Book of Worship and United Methodist Hymnal bring us together in praise and song while celebrating our unique Wesleyan heritage.

The Bible tells us to build each other up. (Thessalonians 5:11) We thank God for the people in our lives, both nearby and at a distance, who encourage us. Photo from Casa Linda United Methodist Church, Dallas, Texas, USA, 2018, courtesy of United Methodist Communications with Canva design.
