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 closure of the Presbyterian Record magazine.
Issue 15, Fall 2020
The latest issue of the Presbyterian Connection newspaper was sent out to all congregations and subscribers in early September. This issue is filled with lots of amazing articles and photos from congregations and groups across the country.

A feature commentary on confronting anti-Black racism
Cybersecurity best practices
