New Feature: SUM eNews

This week we implemented a new idea that will help us communicate the activities and ministries in our church.

“SUM eNews” is an electronic weekly news email and web page that will keep you informed of upcoming activities and news in the church. Each week, if you so desire, you can receive the eNews in your email. We will also post the eNews online on the church website. The beauty of this is that you can easily forward the SUM eNews to your friends and anyone who might be interested in our church. So, if you have a neighbor you’d like to invite to Terrific Tuesday this month, you can forward them the SUM eNews, which has information about Terrific Tuesday, as well as other pertinent news for the week.

The format of SUM eNews is consistent with our mission and vision. The newsworthy information will be categorized under the three headings: Gather! Grow! Make a Difference!

Gather! will include church news about upcoming “gathering” events. This could include Terrific Tuesday, Sunday Worship, and more.

Grow! will include opportunities for you to grow in your faith like Sunday School, Small Groups, Bible Studies, and more.

Make a Difference! will include news about upcoming activities that you can get involved with that will make a difference in the church, community, or world.

I hope you enjoy this new weekly feature at SUMC. If you have items to include in our eNews, please forward the information to Jackie in the church office.

  1. Hi Bob! I really like the format of this week’s e-news, and it is full of information. Would it be possible to have our weekly bulletin announcements in this type of format? I looked at it in “print preview” and all those announcements would fit on a double sided legal size page that could be folded inside the bulletin – it would limit the inserts and put all the announcements on one piece of paper in case people wanted to stick it on their fridge or keep it in their purse. (It probably would also be easier for Jackie too!) Also, I really like the way they are classified under the Gather – Grow – Make a Difference categories and believe it would be good to carry that theme out in a more visible way. What do you think?

  2. Hi Peg! This is a great idea! I will talk it over with Jackie. Thanks for the suggestion and positive feedback!
