The church has two e-mail lists. The original list, run through the church’s web host, is used for church announcements and business only. Only list owners are allowed to post messages. The second list, hosted by Yahoo, is a more open forum where members can share anything of interest with the congregation — questions, concerns, announcements, volunteer opportunities, job networking, recipes, you name it.

What is an e-mail Announcement List?
It’s an automated e-mail delivery service. You sign up by sending your e-mail address, and then you are automatically subscribed. From then on, you will get any messages sent out to that list.

How do I sign up for the church announcements e-mail list?
It’s pretty simple. All you need to do is open this page http://www.uusharon.org/announcements-sub-unsub/  provide the e-mail address you want to use for this service and click subscribe. A subscription confirmation will be e-mailed to you. Just click to confirm/verify your e-mail address.
Be sure that you add the list address announcements@uusharon.org to the trusted senders list in your e-mail program.

Why would I want to do this?
There are a lot of times when announcements need to be sent out on short notice, or otherwise just don’t make it into the Order of Service or the Chalice. This kind of e-mail service is an easy way to do that. Announcements may be about special services, meetings, changes in plans, or anything related to church business.

How do I unsubscribe?
This is also pretty simple. All you need to do is open the same page http://www.uusharon.org/announcements-sub-unsub/  provide the e-mail address you want to remove from this service and click unsubscribe.

Where do I get more information about the church announcements list?
E-mail the webmaster or the administrative assistant.


How do I sign up for the UUSharon Yahoo Group?
Simply click this link https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/UUSharon/info and click the icon to join or send an e-mail request to join to admin@uusharon.org. You will receive a confirmation e-mail and instructions for what to do.

Why would I want to do this?
Share party invitations, recipes, news of social justice events, personal or family crises, requests for information, offers of zucchini, carpooling … anything in short which might be of interest to the beloved community which is not “official” enough to go out on the congregation announcement list.

How do I unsubscribe from the UUSharon Yahoo Group?
Simply send a blank e-mail message to UUSharon-unsubscribe@yahoogroups.com.
