This is a family-friendly service sure to warm your heart with the real meaning of Christmas.

The safety of our church family and community is very important. FUMC Bedford will maintain our safety protocols by requiring that masks be worn and encouraging social distancing. For those unable to attend the service in-person, the service will be streamed LIVE on the church's Facebook page and website. This year's service may look a bit different than years past, but we're thankful to be able to gather and celebrate the birth of our Savior in a responsible way.
