Looking for a way to worship without leaving the house?

A number of churches in the Texas Annual Conference are posting sermons online.

You don’t have to miss a service if you’re out of town or if you prefer to stay at home. Viewers can also enjoy multiple preaching styles and even virtually “attend” different churches. There’s a lot going on Sundays in the TAC that you won’t want to miss. 

Sermons are often available to livestream on Sunday and several congregations also record services for on-demand viewing.

We would like to include your church in this list. Please let us know if you are posting a resource online by sending a link to: tgriffin@txcumc.org
