Rev. Ed Friesen, pastor of Derby Madison Ave United Methodist Church, has been sending a weekly e-letter to members of his congregation. This reminder gives information about:

  • Weekly Sermon
  • Church Happenings
  • Special Events
  • Words of Encouragement

This is a great way to keep in touch with your members. Many of us wonder if our older members have computers and email when they have been using Skype to visit with their children and grandchildren for years.

Just two things to remember:

  1. Keep the notes to one page.
  2. Know this may take some time to catch on.

Sometimes you may not know how well the e-letter works. However, this is one simple way to remind members to attend church and keep them up to date on church happenings.
