As of September 2013

There is really not a set style for writing the newsletter, and the general guidelines for writing weekly newsletter are as following:

  • Be energetic, encouraging, and optimistic
  • Be clear, concise and use indentation, colours, bold, italic appropriately to improve the readability
  • Do NOT spam people. Usually, one email per week is good. For more than one email, you really need to consult people in the fellowship.

Weekly newsletter using GmailEdit

  1. Go to http://mailchimp.com/
  2. Login using uwmccf, password please ask current chair
  3. To send a new email, go to "Campaigns" and "Replicate" the previous weekly email.
  4. Update the body of the email with upcoming events in the next week.
  5. Update the column on the far right with new location/time if necessary.
  6. Update the top left section with a brief summary of the email, this will show up as the preview when people receive the email.
  7. For the content of the announcement, you will need to consult other leaders and see what they have to announce.
  8. Please see below for a few samples below or here

Hello Everyone!

Another week has passed… Do you realize there are only 3 and half weeks left until the final exams! Ah!! Can’t believe it! Time passes so fast! Well, during these 3 and half weeks, a lot of people, including myself, will be seriously considering the place we will be during the summer; and for some of you, some might be graduating; some are going away to a place that is unknown or unfamiliar to you; some will be staying in Waterloo, (YAY). There are lots of uncertainties during our lives, and the only thing we could do is to pray for each other, and to trust God for His plan for us wherever we go, and whatever we do.
