We just learned about the First Great Awakening.

Another part of early Christianity is Methodism.

In the 1700s a man named John Wesley was a priest in England and had some different ideas about how to worship God.
He believed that people had to go through a "new birth" in baptism, and that people should work very hard to help out people the world like sick or poor people.

He also felt that the church leaders should have church wherever they could to get people to come to church, even outside of a building or outside in a park.

The people that followed him started a church called the Methodist church, sometimes also called Wesleyan churches.
