We maintain several email lists to facilitate communication among our members.
What is an email list?
An email list allows an email sent to one email address (the list) to be sent to all subscribers (also known as members) of the list. It allows some one to email all subscribers to the list without needing to know or use their individual email addresses.
What is the purpose of the email lists?
Each list can be used to efficiently send information to members of the list. This might include:
Cancellations or time changes
We respectfully ask that the email lists not be used for business or business-related purposes.
Also, keep in mind that not all church members are members of the lists, and not all who are members check their email accounts regularly. So, while the lists can help disseminate information, they should not be the only means used to disseminate information.
What email lists are available?
The following email lists are available:
A general list for all interested members and attenders. This list is used to provide general information and announcements that might be of interest to everyone.
A list for youth and youth leaders. This list is used to provide general information and announcements to the youth and youth leaders.
A list for our Awana Club leaders, club members and their families. This list is used for Awana-related announcements.
A list for our Sunday Bible Study leaders. This list is used for announcements and coordination of our Sunday morning Bible Study classes.
A list for our Worship Ministry Team. This list is used to coordinate the music and worship ministries of our church.
How do I send an email to the list?
First, you must subscribe to the list. (This is also called joining the list.) Once you join the list, you will begin to receive the emails that are sent to the list. You will also be able to send emails to be distributed to other list subscribers.
After you've joined the list, simply address your email to the appropriate email list address.

How do I join one of the lists?
List membership is available to all church members. Let Don Herr or the church office know if you'd like to join a list.
Are the lists "moderated"?
Yes, most of our lists are moderated. This means that when you send an email to the list, it will be reviewed by one of our moderators before it is sent to the rest of the list.
Moderation can be a help to both you and the other list members, as it can prevent the inadvertent broadcast of inappropriate information, such as personal information or factually incorrect information (such as "urban legends").
The purpose of the lists are to facilitate communication among those who attend our church.
Use the lists to send special announcements, invitations, prayer requests and other information that may be of interest.
Prayer requests are encouraged. However, please keep the requests directly related to you. For instance, "Please pray for my son" and "Please pray for my friend Carol" are OK. However, "Please pray for a friend of my friend" and "Please pray for a missionary that I read about on a Web site" are not directly related to you. And, of course, be sensitive to any confidentiality issues; often it is sufficient to provide only a few details.
Business-related emails, garage sale announcements, etc., are not permitted.
Some people don't have fast Internet access, so large file attachments that you might be able to send in only a few minutes might take hours for others to download. So, instead of sending pictures or videos, send us a link to where we can see your pictures or videos. (Many Web sites provide free photo albums.)
Consider whether to send any replies directly to the email author or to the list. Email the author when a private reply is best; email the list when your response might be of general interest.
Failure to abide by these guidelines may result in your list membership being revoked.
