Presbyterian Connection banner

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. 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 Presbyterian 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 11, Fall 2019

The eleventh issue of the Presbyterian Connection was sent out to all congregations and subscribers in early September. This issue is jammed with lots of amazing articles and photos from congregations and groups across the country, and includes the popular Gifts of Change giving catalogue.

In this issue you’ll find:

  • A feature story about beekeeping and caring for creation
  • A message from the new moderator, the Rev. Amanda Currie
  • Highlights from the 2019 General Assembly
  • Several leadership articles
  • Information from the Healing & Reconciliation Tour
  • The always popular Gatherings section of photos from congregations
  • News from congregations, coast to coast
  • Plus so much more!
