One of the many things I admire about the Methodist church is its inclusion of all for communion. I was raised Missouri synod Lutheran baptized and confirmed. I was married in a Methodist church as I was married out of state from my hometown. When my new husband and I settled in a new town due to his job we went to a Missouri synod church and he was denied communion at the alter. I was horrified as my husband participated in his hometown Methodist church. Needless to say we switched churches. Our daughter was baptized, confirmed in the Methodist church and hopefully when she marries will be in church. That is my personal testament of the inclusion of the Methodist church.
Thank you for sharing your story. At my previous appointment we had a new member who joined partly because we welcomed her and her husband in communion with us.
