This weekend, the Mother Church of American Methodism will pay tribute to the “father” of American Methodism.

Lovely Lane United Methodist Church at 2200 St. Paul Street is holding a series of events and “observances” to mark the 200th anniversary of the death of Francis Asbury, the founding bishop of the United Methodist Church in America.

The events range from the opening of a new museum exhibit at Lovely Lane to the dedication of an 18-foot-tall monument at Mt. Olivet Cemetery, where Asbury and other Methodist leaders are buried.
