United Methodist churches streaming on Christmas Eve

 

Kathy Noble

When Interpreter asked readers to share their most meaningful Christmas tradition, an overwhelming majority named Christmas Eve services of various sorts. Knowing that not everyone will be able to be with a congregation on that holy night, Interpreter invited churches who are streaming their services to provide that information to allow you to jworship online.

Below are the United Methodist congregations responding as of Dec. 19.To have your church’s livestreaming added, send your church name and location, service times and time zone, URL and contact information to interpreter@umcom.org. Deadline is 3 p.m. Central, Tuesday, Dec. 20.
