Each week we put together a bulletin to inform you about upcoming events going on in the church. These events include birthdays, anniversaries, special activities and
prayer concerns. Each week we print around 100 or so bulletins, double sided, then fold each one and place them in the mail boxes for you. Extras are set on our welcome bar for
Each Monday morning we gather all the bulletins that have been left in the pews, not taken from mailboxes or thrown in the trash and we get rid of them. And this seems
Realistically, not much changes in the bulletin from week to week. The birthdays and anniversaries stay the same. Most events stay the same and these are always
announced on Sunday morning, evening and Wednesday night. The only thing that must be updated each week is the list of prayer concerns. So in an effort to cut ink and printer costs, I would like to
propose a new way of written correspondence:
Beginning in November we are going to try a monthly bulletin. This will come out the first Sunday and list all birthdays and anniversaries for November and the first
week of December. It will also include events for the same time period as well as ongoing prayer concerns. Each week you will receive a smaller weekly prayer list to take home with you. Should you
have prayer requests you want on that weekly list, call or email Roxanna Bernauer and she will put those on the list. (Here is her contact info: (563) 508-6994, firstname.lastname@example.org).
Prayer requests are also put on the Facebook page every Sunday and events are added as well.
We are open to feedback regarding these changes, but ask that you give it a try in November. Our biggest goal is making sure everyone remains aware of all that's going
on in the church.
Think about it.
