Video invites communities to Rethink Easter
Customizable versions available for local churches

Nashville, Tenn.:  United Methodist Communications has created a series of videos and worship resources to help local churches Rethink Church and reach those who are searching for more than Easter eggs and chocolate bunnies this season.

Spreading a message of love, hope and joy by embracing the miracle of God’s love, the videos will air regionally in select television markets and nationally on digital and mobile channels starting March 31.

Local churches can download 30 and 15 second versions of the Easter video for use on websites, in worship or on social media platforms. Free worship slides, bulletin covers and social media graphics are also available for download at http://shop.umc.org/rethink-church/theme/seasonal

Additionally, customizable ads are available for churches to use as an invitation to Easter services and special events. For a customized video, email mediaservices@umcom.org by April 11.
