Calendar Help

Uses

Our calendar is used to:

  1.  Inform the community and members of events of general interest that are happening at Zion.
  2.  Coordinate use of our facilities.
  3.  Provide members with invitations and reminders for meetings and record their responses.

To accomplish these three purposes we use two calendars -- the "Website Calendar" for events of general interest and the "Member Calendar" for events of more limited interest and for all events that make use of our facilities.  Events of general interest that happen at our facilities appear on both calendars.

Everyone

Accessing Calendars

You can access the "Website Calendar" from the "General Information Homepage" by selecting "Calendar" from the menu bar.

You can access the "Member Calendar" from the "Member Information Homepage" by selecting "Member Calendar" under the Calendar tab.

Getting information on Website Calendar

Click event communication to get information added to the Website Calendar.  You can also access this form from the home page by clicking on "Event Communication" under the "Resources" tab in the menu bar.

Facilities Use for Community and Private Member Functions

Our facilities are available for community and member use.  Contact community and member scheduling to schedule.

Responding to Invitations & Reminders

When you are invited to a meeting, you receive an email from "Zion Lutheran Church" with subject: "You've been invited to attend an event."  (Check spam folder if you are not receiving invitations and believe you should be.)  To indicate participation, click on "I'm Going," "Maybe," or "Not Going" as appropriate. 

"Not Going" note: If you select "Not Going" you will not receive additional reminders and notifications about the event including notification if the event is canceled.  This happens because you have said you are not going.  Use "Maybe" if you want to receive reminders/cancellations notifications.

As the meeting approaches you may receive email from "Zion Lutheran Church" with subject: "A reminder for <meeting name>."

Changing Participation Information

To change your participation indication, go to "Calendar" under the "Member Calendar" tab, and click on the event.  Click on "Change my RSVP" right under the meeting name.   Now click on "I'm going," "I might go," or "I'm not going" as appropriate.  If you do not see "Change my RSVP" click on the word "Participants" on the right to see the "I'm Going," "Maybe," or "Not Going" selections.

Group Leaders

Group Leaders are responsible for managing their Group's event on the Member Calendar.   Information on how to do this is in Group Calendar Management (Sign in required).
