What is the difference between the United Methodist Church and Presbyterian Church USA?

What are the theological and worship differences amongst the United Methodist Church and Presbyterian Church USA?
Thanks for the answer! I currently knew that the denominations had Wesley and Knox as their inspirations although. I am United Methodist and we have communion each and every week. :)

What do you believe? Answer below!

    I’ve heard Methodists have communion service regularly.

    Methodists got their theology from of John Wesley, who was Arminian.
    Presbyterians got their theology from John Knox, who was Calvinist.

    Arminianism and Calvinism are two different views on soteriology (study of salvation).

    I know this because I’m a Seventh-day Adventist, which happens to also be Arminian and was founded by a Baptist preacher and a Methodist girl.

    Adventists have communion too, but only 4 times a year (after finishing the Sabbath School Quarterly Lesson)

    Elder Woman (the answerer below) here explains the difference bewteen Calvinism and Arminianism quite well.

    Presbyterians believe God chose all who will come to him and be baptised. Methodists believe in free will of every man choosing or rejecting Gods gift as basis for salvation.
