Grace Communications is committed to connecting community and faith, within and beyond the walls of Grace, with the goals of:
- Creating a consistent expression of Grace. The person in charge of communications ensures that what arrives in an inbox, lands in someone’s hands, or hangs on the walls of Grace looks and sounds like Grace.
- Reflecting this expression within the broader community.
- Assisting leadership in the dissemination (not creation) of information regarding the happenings of Grace.
In four words, the office of Communications reviews, approves, refines, and connects.
AREAS OF COMMUNICATION
All announcements on Sunday require approval in advance by our Rector, Wren Blessing. Please email Wren your announcement by Thursday each week, and please plan to keep your speaking time to under one minute.
News generation is a collective effort, funneled through the Communications Office. Communications at Grace requires balancing numerous important events in the lives of a wide variety of Grace members. Content is gathered and developed by Ministry Heads, Leadership, and Clergy. The Communications office reviews, refines, and prioritizes this information to create a consistent voice and fair, timely coverage.
You can submit your press-release, article, or announcement as a document or in the body of an email. We will run articles up to 100 words in the eNews. Longer pieces will be linked to a post on our website.
Accompanying images are encouraged, if you have them. We love to include images in eNews as space allows.
If you are publishing a list of names, please confirm spellings and last names, email addresses, and phone numbers using the OnRealm Directory.
Note that Communications will often make edits to increase clarity, add consistency, or make space accommodations.
Submit copy to [email protected] by noon on Tuesday for the end of week issue.
Sunday Bulletin Insert
Content for the weekly bulletin insert comes directly from the content that is submitted for the weekly eNews. The bulletin is a single two-sided page, so the content is typically edited for length.
