By Linda Hutchison Question: What do reformed Anglicans, a railroad station and the margarita have in common? Answer: In La Jolla, they are all part of the history of the United Methodist Church. Located on La Jolla Boulevard close to the Bird Rock community for more than 60 years, the church is well known for its rose garden, annual rummage sale, large nursery school and music programs, according to Rev. Dr. Walter Dilg, pastor. The church’s mission statement is “to make, mature and mobilize the disciples of Christ for the transformation of the world,” as described in its “Book of Discipline,” he said. “We do this predominantly through our worship/music programs, our education programs and service projects.” See Methodist Church, B6
