The Presbyterian Connection newspaper is a new publication produced by the Life and Mission Agency, following the announcement of the closure of the Presbyterian Record.

Presbyterian Connection is a Christian newspaper that strives to unite Presbyterians from across the country through stories, reflections, interviews and articles, allowing us to share and develop our faith. The newspaper is informative, educational—and fun! It is distributed four times per year, free of charge.

The goal of the newspaper is to further equip leaders, connect congregations and missions, facilitate communication and highlight denominational work—strengthening our denominational ties across the country.
