Many congregations are discussing or have discussed turning to e-newsletters as an alternative to the U.S. Postal Service. Before deciding, examine the pros, cons and options. Discuss what you want to communicate and how people like to receive information.

During the Civil War, the church I attend was occupied by Union soldiers who used the pews for firewood, and the building as a horse stable. Later, the church burned. While different, every church has a history. It can be seen in its architecture, wall portraits, and even in its minutes and bylaws. At some point, the congregation will need to share that history in an anniversary, a church directory or a community celebration. Share that history in ways that are both significant and fun.

March 13 happens to be Good Samaritan Involvement Day, which commemorates the 1964 murder on this date of Catherine “Kitty” Genovese in Queens, N.Y.

October is Pastor Appreciation Month and Appreciation Day on October 12. Many children aren't sure what a pastor does. Perhaps it is a good time for children -- of all ages -- to spend more time getting to know and appreciate your pastor. (Video by Park West Church in Knoxville, Tenn.)
