Want to get the word out at CUCC? Each CUCC member has his or her favorite source of information, so think duplication of communication! Remember that we have two Sunday worship services and that our members span the dawn of the digital age.
Write 2 or 3 sentences and email them to the office no later than Thursday at 11 am, for the upcoming Sunday. The bulletin announcements are distributed at both the Taizé and 10:30 worship.
Make an eye-catching poster and place it on the appropriate bulletin board. Bulletin boards are organized by Ministry, with one dedicated to what our people are doing individually in the world.
Make arrangements with the office two weeks ahead of time to have your committee's insert included in the bulletin.
Ask the office to put your event on the calendar at the CUCC website. This is the "official" schedule of events. If you're planning a CUCC event (on site or off site), your event should be on the calendar. The calendar is also the system for reserving rooms.
CUCC News and Chat
Have a detailed announcement to make in between newsletters? CUCC News and Chat fills that niche. To keep marketers at bay, we've limited who can post to people at CUCC; ask Jane Smith to get you set up. Or ask her to post the information for you.
If you join Facebook, you can post your announcement on the Community United Church of Christ Facebook page. Because Facebook is a more informal medium, you are welcome to include invitations to participate in your personal service and advocacy projects, invite others to join you at community events, or engage in conversation about life together. People don't have to join Facebook to see our page.
Send your announcement to the office by Friday at 9am.
Contact the Community Outreach Ministry to be put on the schedule. Ministry Moments are geared to highlight opportunities for the congregation to be involved in ministry within and beyond the congregation. You can check available dates on the Ministry Moment Calendar.
Set up an informational table in the narthex or at Fellowship. To schedule the space, contact the office.
Write an article and email it to the office no later than the deadline – check the calendar.
Sunday Morning Announcement
These are rare and are best used for last minute changes. Contact Steve Halsted to ask him to make the announcement and give him the basic information in writing on Sunday morning.
If you have something you would like highlighted on our homepage, contact Jane Smith by the Friday at least 10 days before the event.
The CUCC website is a place to: publicize your upcoming CUCC event, report the work of your ministry or committee, announce church news, enlist help with church projects, share ideas with other church members, and many other things. Contact the webmaster for help with publicity for your project.
Remember, duplicate your message!
