The Great Festivals of the Mlinethodists
Methodists developed several “peculiar” services of worship connected with admission and integration into, or maintenance of, the Christian (Methodist) community. These extraliturgical events, most of which were not original to the Methodists, included the love feast, watch night, renewal of the covenant, quarterly meeting, camp meeting, protracted meeting, and revival. Once identified as the “great festivals” of Methodism, these services eventually diminished in frequency, although they never entirely disappeared.
