  • I would like to see the Finnish Word for Methodist and also for United Methodist. I did not see those in the list of religions. For I myself, go to a United Methodist church. Thanks.

    • Methodism is ”metodismi” in Finnish, you are a ”metodisti” and United Methodist church is ”yhdistynyt metodistikirkko”. Straight translations without much difficulty! Thanks for the request! I added these.
