Dynamic Christmas Worship

The Great Plains Conference has worked with congregations across Kansas and Nebraska to develop a full worship service, or components for churches to choose from, for online worship Christmas Eve or the Sunday after. 

While all music is public domain, it is still highly recommended that churches have a CCLI license and a streaming license to use this content.



Download the bulletins (Word documents) so you can see what is planned and so you can start substituting your own content or copy and paste from these documents into your own bulletins.

Full Services

Full services for Christmas Eve and a second for the following Sunday (mostly a duplicate from Christmas Eve with just a couple of changes) will be available Dec. 18 or 19. There also will be options for downloading completed services up to the sermon and after the sermon for churches whose pastors want to provide the sermon.

Christmas Eve Full Service  Following Sunday Full Service
Christmas Eve Prior to Sermon  Following Sunday Prior to Sermon 
Christmas Eve After the Sermon  Following Sunday After the Sermon
