A Very UCC Christmas: 2020

Eleven digital hymns, a movie and a pageant of lessons and carols, produced by the national setting of the United Church of Christ, are now being made available to local churches for Advent and Christmas.

Each piece, posted below as it becomes available, is downloadable as a video file.

Local churches are welcome to use these files however is helpful to you. You may choose to show scenes as part of your worship, or save them all until the Dec. 27. You can split it up, or leave it together. You can use the hymns independently, or show them twice. This pageant and service is a gift for those who plan worship: so take what works, and leave the rest. 

The Lessons and Carols is expected for download early in the week of Dec. 14!
