Social Networking Bridges

Earlier we posted that we had established the bridge from the district’s new web site and the WVUPCI Twitter account, meaning those who follow us on Twitter will automatically know something new has been posted here.

Now we have established the bridge from the district’s new web site and the district’s Facebook account. This means we can send published posts over to WV UPCI's Facebook. (Note: We ask that you click there and "LIKE" the page (become a fan), as we need at least 25 fans before we can obtain a "friendly" URL for the page. Thanks!)

This also means that anyone can log into the WV UPCI site by using your Facebook login. Logging into one will log you into the other. You can also post comments with that login. (Creation of an account on this site is a simple step on your first time in.)

Work on New Site is Progressing – Updated!

We have established the bridge from the district's new web site and the district's Twitter account. This post and all future posts should show up on Twitter.


Update:

We have 'gone live' by switching the new code so it functions on our main domain (www.wvupci.org). You should now be reading this on our main, regular (.org) domain!

Psst: This does not mean we're done with building the new site. It just means we've gotten enough done that we're ready to move the rest of the construction phase over to the regular domain, so everyone can start enjoying the site while we progress in our ongoing work.


Update #2:

We have established the bridge from the district's new web site and the district's Facebook 'fan page.' This post and all future posts should show up on Facebook.

C is for Coolness.

There's a kids song that says "C is for Cookie." Well, in the UPCI, C is for Church. We think Church = Coolness. So, adopting that dual meaning into UPC (or WVUPCI, to be more specific) leads us to our new #hashword on Twitter: #wvupcoolness

Try it out the very next time you tweet something related to WV UPCI church life. We've made it our default #hashword for our WV UPCI posts on Twitter.

(Note: #Hashwords are an easy way for folks to participate in something cool, important, or noteworthy. #Hashwords also help organize the information stream on Twitter and make things easier to find in searches.)

Azusa StreetRiders: Show Off Your Ride!

Above: Brother Adam Benedum's Honda VTX. He rides as RC (Road Captain) with the ASRs of Clarksburg, WV. The ASRs there are all members of Christian Apostolic Church (UPCI), Pastor Doug Joseph.

Either log into this site and post a photo of your ride, or email us a photo of your ride, and we will post it here! (Try to make sure it is at least about 640 pixels wide. In fact, that is the ideal width. We can shrink it down if it's too big, but if it's too small we can only scale it up so much before it starts looking pixelated.)

Be sure to include your name, and what local chapter of ASR you ride with. This is open to ASRs outside of WV, but we do hope WV ASRs will be on board.
