For Sunday News and FP Weekly

We ask your help in reducing the over 100 monthly submissions received collectively for the Sunday News (insert) and FP Weekly (weekly email) by adhering to the basic guidelines below. We appreciate your help.

Guidelines for Publicizing Events at First Parish

Please send your final form entry and images as attachments by the deadline or earlier. Word limit is 100 and images can be either JPEG or PNG. Send your final entry as an attached file in Word or Text file format. If you are using Pages on a Mac, you will need to “Save As” to a Word (.doc/.docx) or Text (.txt) file format. We cannot use PDFs, so please do not send your article as a PDF.

Review the Brochure

Please review the brochure “Publicizing Events at First Parish of Concord” for details and upcoming dates, and review previous issues for examples.

The brochure is located on the small table outside the church office or can be downloaded here. Be sure to distribute to new committee members! Any questions, please contact the editors. Thank you for your help.

Deadlines and Production Dates

FP Weekly Deadline: Noon Friday for the following week

Sunday News Deadline: Noon Wednesday before Sunday service

Once complete, send submissions to Sarah Burns. Please ask sooner, rather than later, if you have questions. And, be sure to leave time for your committee’s review, if needed.
