A Time to Keep: History of the First Methodist Church of Oviedo, Florida, 1873-1973
History of the First Methodist Church of Oviedo
Methodist church--Southern States
A centennial celebration program booklet for the First United Methodist Church, located at 300 Ruth Street in Oviedo, Florida. The program covers the events of the day, centennial celebrations, the church history, and a number of hymns and sermons. The Methodist Church has a far-reaching history in the South that goes back to the schism of 1844. Divided by the issue of slavery, Southern churches moved to create their own polity during a conference in Louisville, Kentucky. The Southern church eventually reunited with the elder Methodist Episcopal Church, as well as the Methodist Presbyterian Church in 1939, becoming a single polity. In 1940, more conservative congregations dissented from the merge and formed the Southern Methodist Church. The United Methodist Church was finally created on April 23, 1968, when the Evangelical United Brethren Church and the Methodist Church merged.
