The United Methodist Church (UMC) is a Methodist Christian denomination which is both mainline and mildly evangelical. Founded in 1968 by the union of The Methodist Church and the Evangelical United Brethren Church, the UMC traces its roots back to the revival movement of John and Charles Wesley within the Church of England. As such, the church's theological orientation is decidedly Wesleyan. It contains both liturgical and evangelical elements. - Source: Wikipedia
Under the ruling, individual churches could disaffiliate with the UMC if two-thirds of the church community agrees, and if the church meets certain financial requirements.
The school says it currently has 225 students enrolled with 33 graduating in May.
