Text-only announcement requests (bulletin, Sunday class sheet, website) must be submitted ten days before publication.
Requests involving graphic design or verbal announcements must be submitted seven weeks before the event or the last day to register for the event. (This includes requests for verbal announcements (because we always show a slide with the announcement), HDTV slides, social media graphics, brochures, flyers, postcards, signs, etc.) To see an overview of the typical seven-week communication timeline, click here.
The staff reserves the right to edit all communications requests, and requests will only be approved as time and space allows. Announcements will also be filtered by priority and their relevance to the majority of the congregation. After the form is processed, you will receive an email letting you know how your announcement or event will be publicized.
