Order of Service
Email to: email@example.com
Deadline for submission: Wednesdays at noon, unless otherwise announced
The purpose of the Sunday Order of Service is to provide an outline of the worship service, acknowledge lay and shared ministry for that Sunday and provide summary information about upcoming church events and programs. The following guidelines are with regard to the “Announcements” section of the Order of Service:
Items listed in the Announcements will be limited to UUCA and UU programs and events, occurring that Sunday and in upcoming weeks.
Submissions should be 50 words or less, and contain basic information such as – name of the event, date, time, location, brief description and contact person with email or phone number. To provide more detailed information, direct the reader to pick up a flier or visit a display table in the narthex (see display table reservation policy).
Inserts will be considered on a case-by-case basis. They should be sent as an MS Word or MS Publisher document to fit a half-sheet of paper (5½ by 8½ inches). All inserts must come through the order of service email account – please do not drop them off in the office expecting them to be included without first speaking to the office staff.
All submissions are subject to editing.

Deadline for submissions: the 15th of the month
The purpose of “Highlights” is to illustrate how UUCA is working toward the Beloved Community, and how we live out our UU principles. As such, submissions should be “story”-based and approximately 350 words or less. They should relate to the UUCA community at large and/or our UU principles. They could be about past events, or outreach efforts, and could even include a “gratitude corner”, membership information, or chalice lightings for use at home. Articles can be inspirational in nature, or can relate to the monthly worship theme. Currently, the opening page will be taken from the minister’s blog. All articles are subject to editing.
“Highlights” will be published on the 4th Tuesday of the month, and dispersed via the following methods:
printed and mailed via USPS (upon request only)
printed and available for pick-up at the church
electronically at www.uuannapolis.org
An email notification indicating the availability of the latest newsletter will be sent out using Constant Contact on the day of dispersal.
