My thinking about the church bulletin

  1. Our church has one and I like having it.

    This post is about the church bulletin.

    Good, not needed? What are your thoughts?

    I voted for "Doesn't have one, don't see the need" but I go to a very small church (avg Sunday morning attendance is around 50-60). If a church is big enough, then I can see the value in one. If you're as small as my church, and everyone is as close as we are, then a bulletin becomes a waste of paper, as we're talking to each other a lot.

    While I like having a bulletin, I think it is good to access information by word of mouth and on line.

    The key with the bulletin is that it is a way for people to take home the information you announce to them so they have a way to check up on it. Our bulletins also provide a space for people to take notes and there is a tear-off for people to submit prayer requests, event registrations and for new members to give us their information. It's actually quite handy!

    It is a great form of communication. Regardless of the church size people cannot say they were not told.
