One, in 1939, the Methodist Episcopal Church, the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and the Methodist Protestant Church reunified and took the name The Methodist Church.

*some congregations in some Deep South states resisted that merger and withdrew, eventually taking the name “Southern Methodist Church” – but not many. And some of these had to give up their property.

Two, in 1968, the Methodist Church and the Evangelical United Brethren Church (EUB) which had close ties to Methodism and was often popular among Americans of German descent, those two churches merged to form the United Methodist Church.
