Yes, we edit your work
The office reserves final editorial rights. Not all submitted articles will be published. All articles are reviewed and edited to fit our ethos at Hudson First UMC, and to fit within the limits of our publications.
Keep it friendly
Our news channels may not be used to express unilateral political views or to cause intentional injury to anyone. All articles must align with the ethos of the Christian faith and in particular the grace-based, Wesleyan-Arminian views held by the United Methodist Church.
Copyright and Publication Rights
By submitting an article you certify that you are not knowingly violating any copyright laws and give Hudson First UMC the non-exclusive rights to publish your article in any or all of our news channels including but not limited to our newsletter, bulletin, community loop, and website.
Channels and article size:
Due to cost and physical space requirements we limit the amount of space for articles and pictures.
Web: large articles with pictures
Newsletter: small articles with a picture possible
Bulletin: smaller notices with pictures unlikely
Community Loop: tiny notices, picture preferred
A good strategy is to provide a link to the website from the newsletter, bulletin, or community loop for more information.
The "Community Loop" is the announcement slideshow that runs before/after worship and continuously during the week in the Office lobby.
