United Methodist evangelicals growing amid UMC decline

"At the United Methodist Church, money’s tight, factions are readying exits, and social justice takes priority in witness. However, the denomination’s 'traditionalists' — so named for their support for the accuracy and authority of the Bible, especially regarding LGBT marriage and clergy — are growing in number and telling others how Jesus saves." - CPost

My grandmother (who turns 101 in a couple of weeks!) attends one of these more evangelical UMC churches, and it's doing pretty well as far as I can tell.  It's in a tiny little town outside of Macomb, IL that is holding on by its teeth, but membership/donations are steady.  The bishops just can't find any theological liberals to fill the pulpit, so they're blessed with an evangelical lay minister.

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.
