The South Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church has created a free online resource to help local churches and ministries plan their upcoming year in worship and ministry.
The UMCSC Planning Calendar – umcsc.org/plan – features links to:
- The 2020 Revised Common Lectionary in multiple, printable formats – including a one-page quick-view and a monthly worship and music planning calendar
- Colors for the Christian Year
- An online lectionary planner from UMC Discipleship Ministries
- South Carolina UMC online calendars and directories
- General church online calendars and directories
The goal of the new calendar is to provide a one-stop site for links to information churches and ministries can use to plan their own calendars.
The South Carolina Conference published and sold a version of the UMC Program Calendar – customized with South Carolina content – for more than 20 years. Due to changes in licensing and the accompanying increased cost for that printed calendar, conference officials decided to cease publication after the 2019 edition.
The new online UMCSC Planning Calendar – developed using feedback from a survey of those who purchased the 2019 calendar – is designed to take the place of the printed calendar.
A printed version 2020 UMC Program Calendar – without South Carolina customization – can be purchased from Cokesbury.
