This bicentennial is a time not only for honoring mission in the life of the church, but also for drawing the church further into God’s mission. It is a time for United Methodists and Methodists from related denominations to celebrate what God has done through Methodists in mission and to recommit to following God’s voice in mission.

We encourage congregations, annual conferences, and other groups to host their own bicentennial mission celebrations. For more information about mission celebrations, contact Rev. Scott Parrish at
