Welcome to the CEM Weekly Announcement Blog

This blog will be used to replace the current weekly email newsletter sent by Cheryl from the CEM offices.

You can receive this information in one of three ways - choose whichever way is most convenient for you:
  1. Regularly use your web browser and come to the CEM Weekly Announcements page under the "Canada East Mission" tab.
  2. If you use an RSS-reader, such as Google Reader, you can use the RSS feed on the CEM Weekly Announcements page. [If you haven't a clue what that means - it won't apply to you!]
  3. You can subscribe to receive the weekly announcements in your email. This is similar to what happens now, and is what most people should choose. You can go to the CEM Weekly Announcements page on the website, and enter your email address in the subscription box at the top. NOTE: before you can be added, you will receive a subscription confirmation email and you must click on the link in that email to confirm that you want to receive the weekly post. If you don't see the email in your Inbox, look in your spam/junk mail folder.

    lso note that if you change your email address, it is your responsibility to go and sign up again with the new email address!

There are several important benefits to this new approach, including:
  • By self-registering to receive the email posts, that means nobody at the CEM office has to constantly maintain and update email addresses.
  • You can receive the information in several different ways.
  • The mission centre email domain was continually being "blacklisted" by Hotmail, Yahoo and others, because it looked like we were sending spam emails. This means a lot of extra (and unproductive) work by someone in the mission centre office.

How Is This "Weekly Announcement" page/email different from the "News" page on the website?

This page/blog/email is intended to be for announcements - something that you could include in your weekly bulletins, for example. The news page will be used for more "immediate" news items, such as informing everyone about a death in our church family, or other time-sensitive new that can't wait for the weekly announcements.
