The Massachusetts Conference staff is weighing the idea of producing a regular bulletin insert designed to help inform the laity of Conference happenings, and is looking for feedback from churches.
"There is so much going on in the wider UCC – leadership training and faith-building events, justice actions, mission opportunities," said Associate for Communication Tiffany Vail. "We understand there is a limit to how much our pastors and church administrators can do to inform the 'people in the pews' about all this."
"We do a lot to reach those folks electronically via email newsletters, the website, Facebook and Twitter," she said. "But we feel we could reach a wider range of people via print at worship services, and so we are wondering if this is something churches would be willing and able to work on with us."
