A brief explanation of what the Connectionalism thing is
we become a member of a United Methodist congregation, we become a member of the
total United Methodist connection.
connection is like a network of interdependent and interrelated relationships
among persons in groups at local, regional, national, and international levels.
with over 8 million members and 43,000 clergy, we are still the Body of
Christ called United Methodists who send missionaries and ourselves into the
reach out in times of need and disaster;
minister in more than 100 Methodist colleges and universities;
support 13 theological schools for training of pastors;
work together to accomplish the will of God;
have promised that we will handle 4 basic things: Prayers, Presence,
Gifts, & Service
don’t have to do everything for ourselves like a “stand alone” church would, for
we have the support that allows us to do more than that which we could do alone.
We are a connection, we are together, and this is important to our faith!
