Yes, methodists believe in the "Virgin Mary" as do all Christians in that she is mentioned in the gospels as the Mother of Jesus and wife of Joseph. Methodists accept all that is biblical about her, that she gave birth to Jesus, sang the Magnificat, was present at the wedding in Cana, was present at the crucifixion and so on.

Correction about the Catholics:

"Mother Of God"

Mary's most fundamental privilege is that of being the Mother of God. We do not mean she produced the divine nature, of course. But her Son is God, so she is the Mother of God.

Catholics don't worship Mary:

But it was misunderstand by many when a priest misinterpret what he said about the word worship.

In common speech "worship" means the adoration given to God alone. In this sense Catholics don't worship Mary or any of the other saints. In fact, the Catholic Church forbids any adoration to be given to any one or any thing but God. But in an older use of the term "worship" could cover not just the adoration of God but also the honor given to anyone deserving of honor. We pray with the saints and ask for their prayers.
