United Methodist Communications releases electronic program calendarfor 2009

NASHVILLE:United Methodist Communications is offering an electronic version of the 2009 official denominational program calendar as a convenient download.

The UMC eCalendar can be imported into any calendar application that can read the iCalendar or vCalendar format, which includes Outlook, Microsoft Works, iCal (Mac), and Palm Desktop. It may also be used with online calendars such as Google Calendar or Windows Live Calendar. This information can then be synced with PDAs, smart phones and other handheld devices for on-the-go use. Having calendar data available in such a convenient format saves space and time, and users can update information and inform others with the click of a button.
