Up to this point, our website (evcl.org) has mostly served those who are looking for a new church and those wanting to listen to a recent sermon. We are making a shift that will encourage our church family to visit our website more often. There will soon be a page for our “VCL Family” that will provide links to announcements, Village Vine articles, upcoming events, and other pages that a regular attender would be interested in.
In the meantime, did you know that we put up the week’s bulletin on the website the Friday before our Sunday worship service? See our bulletins at evcl.org/bulletins. Do you know that you can give securely online with your credit card or PayPal account, and even set up an automatic regular payment? Check it out at evcl.org/give.
An exciting development for our staff is our recent switch to using Google Apps. Google provides their Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Drive, and other web applications to churches and other non- profits at no cost. The huge benefits of switching to Google Apps will not necessarily be obvious to the church at large, but it will provide the ability for our staff to have a much more organized and unified way of communicating, including having a shared contact list, as well as the ability to share and organize documents.
In the days to come, you may notice new email addresses from our staff. This is part of the switch to Google Apps. However, all old email addresses will continue to work, so do not worry about having to learn a new one at the moment. We will send out an email soon to the church with a list of the new and expanded email addresses. In the meantime, feel free to send any ques- tions or comments to IT@evcl.org. Also, don’t forget to like us on Facebook (villagechurchoflincolnshire) and follow us on Twitter (@_evcl).
