Denomination Launches E-newsletter called “United Methodist Now”

Date Posted: 4/27/2017

This new digital publication features insight and inspiration delivered with the distinctive voice of the denomination.

A new e-newsletter marks the launch of a denomination-wide effort to streamline and customize communications for United Methodist members, leaders and seekers. A reflection of UMC.org, United Methodist Now is the first publication to carry the voice of the denomination directly to members by delivering inspirational and informational content specifically designed for them.

“United Methodist Communications is excited about this new way to reach out and connect to United Methodists,” says Dan Krause, general secretary of United Methodist Communications. “All of us can benefit from a word of encouragement, an insight into church beliefs or information about the denomination’s rich history.”

Sent twice per month, United Methodist Now includes stories, articles, videos, quizzes, links and other multimedia content. Subscribers can anticipate learning about:

  • What it means to be United Methodist
  • Christian living/your daily journey
  • Church beliefs and history
  • Motivation, inspiration and things worth watching
Members can subscribe to the free e-newsletter and view the most recent articles at UMC.org/newsletter. Local church leaders are encouraged to help spread the word about the publication so that all church members have an opportunity to be part of the United Methodist Now community.

United Methodists who would like to share their inspiring stories in the e-newsletter can send ideas to UMNow@UMC.org for consideration.

An RSS feed of the five most recent United Methodist Now articles is available for churches that utilize United Methodist Communications’ webhosting service. More details about this service, as well as local church webhosting grants, are available online. For more information, contact Laura Buchanan at lbuchanan@umcom.org or 615-742-5413.
