The Presbyterian Connection newspaper 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.

The Connection is produced by the Life and Mission Agency and was first launched in March 2017, following the announcement of the closure of the Presbyterian Record.

Issue 5, Spring 2018

The fifth issue of the Presbyterian Connection was sent out to all congregations and subscribers in March.

In this issue:

  • A feature story, “Knitting  the Faiths Together,” that highlights the Stitched Glass project from Kirk Dunn
  • Considering church buildings strategically
  • Leadership in times of change
  • Reflections by the Rev. Dr. Dorcas Gordon on experiences in Palestine/Israel
  • Book reviews
  • Photos from congregations
  • Updates from PWS&D
  • News pieces, games and much more!

Correction notice: The printed issue incorrectly marks the 150th anniversary of The Message (page 7). The article should say that The Message is marking their 125th anniversary. Our apologies for this error.
