Special editions of Digest will track news of online Synod
Readers eager for news from United Church of Christ’s first-ever online General Synod can find it in two ways.
First, articles will appear daily — and many times on most days — at United Church of Christ News. A team of reporters — staff and volunteers — will provide coverage throughout the July 11-18 event.
And, second, that coverage will be packaged into special editions of UCC News Digest. The national e-newsletter usually comes out weekly, on Tuesday. But for Synod, the Digest will hit subscribers’ inboxes more often — around 1 p.m. EDT on these days:
- Monday, July 12
- Tuesday, July 13
- Friday, July 16
- Saturday, July 17
- Sunday, July 18
- Monday, July 19
- Tuesday, July 20
UCC News Director Connie Larkman encouraged Synod enthusiasts to do two things now:
- bookmark the UCC News page; and
- subscribe to the Digest now. The subscription form appears in the left-hand column of every UCC News story, as seen here.
“Every two years, we try to bring Synod to the wider church though news coverage,” Larkman said. “We always report the hard news — the resolutions, elections, bylaw changes and all the important Synod business. But we also try to capture the flavor of the event — workshops, worship, youth activities, service projects, speeches and more. This year we hope to describe ‘special edition’ aspects of Synod, and how being online for the first time affects things.”
