All you have to do is join one and add a new list, new signup form and write a welcome email. There are great videos online that show you what to do.

How To Email A Church Newsletter
It is pretty easy once you setup a paid autoresponder tool like Aweber or GetResponse. But the costs do add up fast.
Write your newsletter first.
Aim for 4 or 5 pages max.
Choose 1 Call to Action(what you want them to do next) People like to have a next step.
Choose 1 Main topic and write a 1 or 2 page interesting article.
Add a 1 paragraph introduction with a tidbit of church business.
In your main topic, share a story with a takeaway or two.
Mix in some short paragraphs of what’s happening at church, who did what recently, upcoming special events and even who’s having a birthday. News is basically what people want to stay interested.
You than have a closing paragraph or two that lead them to do something. Or give them a link to a funny or informative video on Youtube. Any special request you would like them to do.
That’s plenty to put in any church bulletin or newsletter. You will write better email newsletters with experience.
