the Assemblies of God, but which can be found in other churches as
What is the MissioNETtes mailing list for?
The Missionettes mailing list was created with the intention of
bringing Missionette leaders in from all over the world to unite
them for the purpose of sharing ideas, feelings, experiences and
many other things relating to Missionettes and their lives as they
involve themselves in ministry.
The quality and value of the fellowship and ideas on this list
relate directly to the quality of the postings you make.

How do I Unsubscribe from the MissioNETtes mailing list?
Go to http://RangerNet.org/subscribe.htm and fill out the form, using
the exact same email address you subscribed with, OR send a message
to firstname.lastname@example.org with the line
in the BODY of the message. (The subject line is ignored.) To
change mailing addresses, unsubscribe from your old one and
subscribe to the new one. Please do not send unsubscribe
requests to the whole list.
How do I Send Messages to the MissioNETtes Mailing List?
Simply address your email to email@example.com (or to
MissioNETtes@eBible.org) and it will be copied to everyone on the
mailing list world wide.
What Netiquette applies to MissioNETtes?
Follow the Golden Rule.
It is wise to "lurk" for a few days (reading messages without
posting anything) to get a feel for the kinds of things that are
discussed and some of the personalities on the list -- then jump
in and introduce yourself. We would like to know your name,
connection with Missionettes, location, etc.
Remember that you are communicating with people, not computers.
ALL CAPS IS SHOUTING.
Please keep the discussion on topic (Missionettes, Christian
living, devotions, crafts, and related material). Some friendly
banter is OK, and even adds a human element to the discussion,
but please don't post chain letters, "get rich quick" schemes,
commercial messages (except for Missionettes material of general
interest), or anything you wouldn't want your pastor, your
mother, and small children to read.
Please be kind to people with slow modem connections and small
mailboxes. Don't post large binary files, graphics, etc. It is
appropriate to post pointers to ftp or web sites to get such
things, where appropriate. Before posting anything, ask yourself
if it edifies, encourages, cheers up, or helps the people who
read it. Don't use the mailing list as a substitute for personal
email -- send replies directly instead of to the whole list,
unless the reply is of interest to everyone.
Please don't quote or forward messages on this mailing list
outside of this forum without permission from the author.
When composing messages, consider not only the intended
audience, but also keep in mind that some lurkers who may not
even be Missionettes or even Christians are likely to read your
mail -- now or in the future. This is not to discourage you from
being open, but to be wise about what you post and to encourage
you to a good witness for Jesus Christ in everything you write.
Please make sure that the "subject" line of your post clearly
describes what is in the message. This helps others to find and
use materials such as devotions, resource ideas, etc., that have
been posted. No special code or syntax is required, but
"Subject: Devotion: the 1st commandment with a promise" works
Be sure that what you send is sent in love with the intention
of building up others on the list. Be aware that postings may
be saved by some people for a long time.
Where can I find more information on Missionettes on line?
