NEWSLETTER note: September 23, 2009

Our church Finance Committee and Administrative Council recently approved a plan whereby our church newsletter will be accessed on the church’s website and email reminders (with a link to the newsletter) will be sent when the newsletter is ready.

Ø      Paper copies will be printed only for those who do not have internet service and will be made available at the back of the sanctuary; we will no longer mail newsletters.  Arrangements will be made for those who are homebound or in a nursing home. 

Ø      If you are on the email prayer chain we have your address and do not need to collect it.

Ø      If you have internet access, and are not on the church’s email prayer chain, and wish to continue receiving the newsletter please send your email address to Dan Dalrymple at

Ø      You may also call the church office with your email address.

Ø      We expect these changes to take place for the October/November newsletter.

Ø      Why the change? 

1.      We spend $400 a year on postage to mail newsletters and we are looking to save any way we can.

2.      We also go through a boat-load of paper, which also increases our cost by increasing our copier usage.  Each time we run the newsletter it puts 2,500 copies on the copier. 

3.      A lot time is also spent copying, folding, labeling and mailing all those newsletters. (We have to do 200 newsletters to get the bulk mailing rate).
