The NC Conference celebrated a not so normal Easter with a diverse Conference-wide Easter Service on Sunday, April 12. Worshipers were able to watch the service or call in and listen.
The 9 am and 11 am services had 2,945 and 3,388 unique attenders (how many browsers loaded the page) respectively. The average time attended for each service was 23:47 and 23:06.
364 total calls connected to the service via phone with an average call length of 17:50.
In a time of physical distancing, the service provided a well-timed message of hope and unity for our conference.

We created our live.nccumc.org page with Church Online Platform, free software so any church can reach people through online ministry. Video of the service was published to Vimeo and sent to Rev.com for transcription into English/Spanish captions. Twilio provided the phone connection.
