The Communications Committee is excited to announce changes to our fellowship’s Facebook Group. The group was created to enable dialogue, action, fellowship and support for members and friends. You can search for and join this private group using the new name, UUFCM Connections. In addition to information posted by the administrator, all members of the group are invited to post comments, photos, and links that would be of interest to all. A good rule of thumb would be to consider UUFCM Connections as a virtual coffee hour. Anything you would feel comfortable sharing during coffee hour would probably be appropriate here. If in doubt about what to post remember our mission, our covenant, and see the additional rules listed in the group.
With winter weather upon us, please send Laura McBride your phone number and/or email address so you will receive a notice should a service be cancelled due to inclement weather, or a special event announcement. You may add the Remind App to your smartphone, or once your info is added to the app, you will get an invitation from Remind explaining how to add the app to your phone. If you have questions, contact Laura McBride (email@example.com; 989.772.5512). She is adding names and info as they come in. If you received a notification, please respond to it!
The UUA indicates that several UU congregations have reported that their members have received scam emails requesting gift card donations for a charitable cause. UUA recommends that all UU congregations be made aware of this and reminded of the official channels that each congregation uses to accept donations. UUFCM’s official channel is through plate collections and through the mail, and we never ask for donations via e-mail.
A good rule of thumb with emails you’re not expecting is to: (1) reach out to the sender through another channel (call, text, visit website) and (2) not click on a link (or send money, gift cards, etc.) without clarifying from the trusted source.
Please add this app to your smartphone, laptop, or ipad/tablet...REMIND! This is the method we will use to notify you of fellowship service closings and event announcements. You will be getting an invitation from Laura McBride. If you want it sent to an email address versus a cell phone number, let Laura know. Add the app to your technology of choice. Direct questions and requests to Laura McBride (989-772-5512; Lmcbride010@gmail.com).
