Works

Religion

In modern culture the ability to make decisions and choose our own path in life has extremely high value. But through the faith we voluntarily surrender to God in love and joy.

Politics

Some people think that involvement in political life is something Christians should avoid. But God is present everywhere, including political institutions.

The strong feature of Methodism is that prayers are not only led by an ordained minister, but often by a local preacher - a lay person who has been trained and authorized to lead worship and preach.
