Communication Liaison System

Each group, class, or team at Wesley Church will designate a person as a Communications Liaison. The purpose of the Communication Liaison System is to better ensure that information is communicated from the group, class, or team to the church office.  

We have one meeting each year with the Communications Liaisons. It is usually in February. We encourage all groups to designate a Communications Liaison at their first meeting of the year (in January).

Bulletin Board System

Cancelling Sunday Worship Services Plan

If the weather is too bad to hold Sunday worship services we will get the word out using multiple communication tools.  The process to be used is as follows:

1.    Pastor White makes the decision to cancel Sunday worship services.
2.    Pastor White

a.    Changes the church office answering machine message.
b.    Calls (or texts) Pastor Rhee and the leader of the Campus Faith Christian Ministry.
c.    Calls (or texts) Jim Olsen, Communications Chair.
d.    Utilizes Call-em-all phone message system
e.    Puts it on http://macombradio.com/ (Prestige Communications)

3.    Jim Olsen

a.    Puts up the Church-Services-Cancelled-Due-to-Weather banner on the website which links to (by clicking) an associated announcement (which he creates).  Other banners are disabled for one day.
b.    Puts it on Facebook.

 

Smart TV Video

This video explains the basics of using the Smart TV in the Youth Room. (Included is DVD player, wound bar, and browser.)

Communications Tools

At Wesley we use the following communication tools:

  • Website (church) Calendar – this is the most complete listing of church activities.
  • Website Announcements
  • Website pages* - Information on each group at Wesley appears on the website (we are still gathering information)
  • Sunday Worship Bulletin
  • Announcement Slides on Screens (at worship services)
  • Monthly Newsletter
  • Cork Strips (lower level at both entrances; upper level along the hall from the Choir room [past the nursery] to the Kindergarten SS room)
  • Bulletin Boards (see above)
  • Facebook - Wesley United Methodist Church of Macomb, IL; Wesley UMC Senior High Youth Group
  • Table Tents (in the Atrium)

  • The Pastor creates a shared google doc with the sermon series for the year (and sermon titles).  This is used by various people, including the music teams, secretary, and those editing the webpage. Music and hymn titles and other information may be added to the file (and therefore shared).

Church360

Church360is our new database (began using it Feb. 2016) that the church office is using to keep track of names, addresses, memberships on teams/groups/classes.  It is much more user-friendly than our previous system.  More information will be shared about Church360 as we learn more about it.  macombwesleyumc.360members.com
