Online Newsletters

Many of us have been looking for ways to save money and resources. One method the leadership of the church has come up with is to offer our church's monthly newsletter, The Sunshine Herald, online. By offering this online we save money, the price per page for every copy made as well as the postage to mail those that are not picked up in the narthex, and resources, the paper we use to print the newsletter with. I have found a free program that allows me to host and publish the newsletter right here on my blog. This program will allow you to see the newsletter in full screen, and go through it by scrolling the pages, flipping the pages like a book, or just seeing one page at a time. You can also print it out at your home or download it to your computer to view any time you wish. And all of this is free to you and the church.

By no means are we eliminating the printing of the newsletter. If you would still like a print copy of the newsletter each month you do not have to do a thing. However, if you like to begin receiving the newsletter online only, there is a sign up sheet at the Connection Station for you to put your name on. For every family that goes online only, the church will save roughly a $1.00 per year. Not only can those savings be significant but the reduced use of paper is a benefit for all of us!

Have a great week!
