I grew up UMC in Texas. My mom still goes to that church.
I live in California now, and there is not a Methodist church that I would go to out here.
I go to a non-denominational church that is conservative in it’s beliefs, but modern in the way they teach those beliefs (rock music, videos, facebook, etc). I miss the more traditional service, but my kids love our church and want to go, and that’s more important to me.
Sad, sad, sad.
I believe prayer is powerful and I use it all the time..the Master and I are on first name basis...I know he listens and HE knows I believe.
