Updates for July 5th, 2013

Changes to Keeping Current


With the swirl of end of the year activity, you may not have noticed, but the first of June and the first of July have come and gone without an electronic version of our newsletter KC appearing in your inbox. That is because we heard from you — through our small group dinner conversations, our congregational conversation regarding communication, and from Council discussions, — that there was much redundancy in how we were using KC, the Friday email blasts, and the website.


Therefore, with Council’s approval we have instituted some changes. Instead of producing KC electronically each month, the content of KC will be posted to the website with the Friday email blast highlighting and pointing to the most recently updated information. “From the Pastor,” “From the Moderators,” the latest CE news, recent happenings – all of these articles are now posted directly to our website (www.ucw.org). You can access them by clicking on the “Blog” image on the bottom half of the homepage.


At the end of the month, all of the new content that was posted during the course of the previous month, will be formatted into a hard copy KC that will be mailed to those among us who are not online and will be available at church for others that enjoy a hard copy version.


As we roll out this change, we welcome your thoughts, comments, suggestions. Please feel free to call the church directly at 617-527-6221 or emai l[email protected]. Thank you!
