Download: 15 second | 30 second

This Advent, United Methodist Communications is making it easier for you to communicate the true meaning of Christmas to your congregations and those outside your church walls by offering grassroots marketing tools. As part of our ongoing "Rethink Church" campaign, you will have access to a variety of Christmas communication resources from videos and online resources to social, digital media and print assets such as direct mail postcards and bulletin inserts.

Visit for downloadable resources.

These resources allow for customization to add your church's contact information. Use them for your local and online outreach efforts to convey the message of selfless giving during the Christmas season. These resources are also available in Korean and Spanish.

Contact us for a free video customized with your church's name.

Use these tools to start planning early and equip your congregation to welcome the community to experience the true meaning of Christmas.
