Discover Your Methodist DNA

Join us for a morning of exploration of our Methodist Heritage… perfect for Confirmation Classes, Young Adults, New Members, or just-plain-curious folk. You won’t want to miss this popular way to experience your denomination’s beginnings, and meet other Methodists that are carrying the faith into the future. Over 3,000 Methodist and AME confirmands and their hosts from NY, NJ, DE and PA have come to Historic St. George’s to explore the history and the relevance of Methodism.

Sign your group up early to guarantee your spot; we limit the number of attendees at each session to ensure that everyone has the maximum exposure to the stories and artifacts at St. George’s. Please Note: There are breakout sessions with limited seating. During the breakout portion, members of your group will be separated and have different experiences. We urge you to plan a time for them to share their particular experience with the rest of the group afterwards.

Come see what the buzz is all about … your youth will enjoy an experience of Methodist History that will deepen their understanding and connect them with the larger faith community. Actors and musicians join us to help tell the important story of this cradle of American Methodism, and new features are added each year.

Our 2013 Temple University Cultural Fieldwork Initiative interns, Jared Stock and Shawn Reath,  devised a resource for teaching Civil Rights history. There are two lesson plans, a scavenger hunt and multiple online references. Check it out, and use it to enrich discussions after you attend Time Traveler.
