Scripture that Enforces our Beliefs

Acts 2: 42-47

42 They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.43 Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles.44 All the believers were together and had everything in common.45 Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need.46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.

The United Methodist Church

Weller UMC is one of nearly 700 United Methodist churches in Maryland, Washington D.C., the eastern panhandle of West Virginia -a region known as the Baltimore-Washington Conference.

Methodism was founded in 1729 by John Wesley, an Anglican priest, in England. United Methodism is a mainstream Protestant denomination. It is distinctive in its emphasis on grace being available to all people. United Methodists combine personal holiness with social witness and action, believing that the love of God is always tied to love of neighbor, a passion for justice and renewal in the life of the world.
