It is a warm Church filled with plenty of history. If I lived near Wall Street I would be a regular Wednesday worshipper.

When we are in NYC we always make sure we are there on Wednesday if possible to attend the lunchtime midweek service. It's 25-30 long and you get enough to study on in a 15 minute teaching.

Great confirmation class! Very nice to learn about the history of the United Methodist Church

"There are two kinds of witnesses. Those who had seen something and understand the significance of what they'd seen and those who had seen something and didn't even know it was important." - Monica Hesse, American Fire: Love, Arson, and Life in a Vanishing Land…/

Captain Thomas Webb, John Street Methodist’s second preacher, was a retired officer in His Majesty’s service when he began sharing preaching responsibilities with Philip Embury. While in New York he heard there were Methodists meeting in Manhattan. Converted at Bristol and licensed to preach by Wesley, he joined the infant society meeting at The Rigging Loft and his rousing preaching brought many to hear the Methodist message of grace and holiness. Preaching in his, with a green eye patch required by a war injury and laying his sword across the pulpit, he was said by John Wesley to be “a man of fire and the power of God constantly attends to his word.” Captain Webb was a key leader in the decision to purchase the lots on John Street and build a Methodist preaching house. He provided £30, making him the largest contributor to the project. Webb began to also preach on Long Island and soon was traveling to Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware, organizing and incubating Methodist societies throughout those colonies.
On May 7, 1777 Captain Webb was arrested as a spy by the Revolutionaries and held as a Prisoner of War at Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. It wasn’t until 1778 that a plea to General George Washington by Webb’s wife, Grace, secured their liberty to return home. When he sailed for England on October 18, 1778 he was the last of the Wesley’s Englishmen to return home, leaving only Francis Asbury to continue the work in America.

April 11, 1768, Thomas Taylor wrote to John Wesley about the Methodist society that had formed in New York and recently purchased land with the intent to build a chapel. This pulpit was built by Philip Embury, literally and figuratively, for the rigging loft where he and Captain Thomas Webb preached to the society. The community was growing and in need of a more experienced preacher. Taylor wrote “We want an able, experienced preacher - one who has both gifts and graces neces...sary for the work. God has not despised the day of small things. We must have a man of wisdom, of sound faith, and a good disciplinarian, one whose heart and soul are in the work, and I doubt not but by the goodness of God such a flame would be soon kindled as would never stop until it reached the great South Sea.” This letter would ultimately bring Richard Boardman and Joseph Pilmore across the Atlantic as the first Methodist preachers stationed on this continent. They would preach from this pulpit whenever in New York, as would Francis Asbury and all the early American Methodist leaders.

A public educational organization devoted to the history of New York at The Graduate Center, City University of New York. Mike Wallace founded the Center in 2000, inspired by the popularity of his Pulitzer-winning book, Gotham.
