John Wesley and the early Methodists placed primary emphasis on Christian living, on putting faith and love into action. This emphasis on what Wesley referred to as "practical divinity" has continued to be a hallmark of United Methodism today.

Hanigan Auto Sales

In 1925, John T. (Jack) Hanigan and his partner Al Pruden purchased the Chevrolet franchise in Payette Idaho for $2000 (which included one automobile plus parts and tools).

With hard work and sacrifice, the company has survived to become the longest continuously-run, family-owned Chevrolet dealer in Idaho.

Jack's two sons, Bob and Dick, became the next generation of Hanigans to operate the dealership and today Bob's sons Mike and Kevin carry on the family tradition.
