This is Episode II of a modern animated series which features the brothers who founded Methodism talking about some of the statistics and the spirit of what is now The United Methodist Church.
We hope you will watch and share these clips, whether with your confirmation class, new member class, Sunday school group or in other settings. We’ve even provided some talking points after each script to get you started.
Do you know the story of John Wesley being “plucked from the burning”? What other stories do you know about his early life?

Have you sung other Charles Wesley hymns?
These videos were produced as a 21st century follow up to the popular clip known as “Clayride: A Gallop Through United Methodist History.” Find out more about the making of “Clayride” from the artists who created that 1984 classic.
