Oklahoma Conference of the United Methodist Church

Ministry in a Minute


Churches in the Oklahoma Conference celebrated Christmas in a variety of traditions. From pageants and candles to parades and dancing, here are how some congregations celebrated the holiday season.

Perry First Candles
Candles (pictured), candlelight and carols were central elements of Perry-First’s Christmas celebration.
Wilburton Children
Both children and adults at Wilburton UMC participated in a spontaneous Christmas pageant, which requires no rehearsal and can be read by a single person. Church members were also involved in a live nativity during the local Christmas parade.
Okmulgee Christmas Eve
Attendees of the Okmulgee-First Christmas Eve service circle the darkened sanctuary, allowing their candles to light the room.
