As you know, starting in September 2016 the Beacon changed format. The focus is to emphasize the ministries of our congregation. What work do our committees and individuals do in our Fellowship community that is meaningful and reflects our values?
In addition to the upcoming services and columns from Rev. Jude, Director of Religious Education, Starr, the president and vice president, we’re looking for “Living Our Values” articles about committee work, like Social Justice, the Development Committee, HiHi, the Grow to Give Garden, the Gallery, Sunday Programming, Not Necessarily Seniors and more.
Examples: What about the book talks about prison reform that took place this year? Or the Journey Groups? We’ll also be publishing moments of witness. We’re an active congregation with many stories to share. Remember that though the content will change, the word count is still 250 words. Include photos whenever possible as well. The deadline is still the 15th of the month prior.
All other Beacon posts will be pulled from the NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS section of the website so be sure to post your items to the website before the deadline of the 15th of the month prior. For instructions how to submit articles to the Communications team see below.
