Far-Reaching Permission To Use UMPH Resources For Online Worship During Crisis

Author: Amy Smith

Nashville, April, 2020 – As we continue to receive requests for clarification about use of copyrighted resources online during the crisis, UMPH is emphasizing full permission for churches to use worship materials, especially during the COVID-19 crisis.
 

The copyright page in the 1992 United Methodist Book of Worship grants permission as follows:
 

“United Methodist congregations may reproduce for worship or educational purposes any item from The United Methodist Book of Worship for one-time use, as in a bulletin, special program, or lesson resource, provided that the copyright notice and acknowledgement is included in the reproduction.”
