GA 223 June 16-23, 2018 in St. Louis
What’s happening at General Assembly this year? When GA 223 meets in St. Louis June 16-23, the General Assembly Newsroom will publish the GA Newspaper every day. A team of crackerjack reporters will fan out through the committees and events, to bring all the news right to your inbox. Subscription is easy and FREE!
As congregational leaders, you are the “front line” responders to help your people understand what the Assembly ACTUALLY did, and the whole scope of news. What we hear repeatedly is that pastors who can’t be at the Assembly are frequently asked questions about GA that they are not prepared to answer – by subscribing to the daily paper, they will be well-equipped to respond when parishioners (and others) ask.
Here’s the deal: click on the link below. It will take you to the sign-up page to receive the GA NEWS delivered free to your inbox each morning of the Assembly. What you will receive is a pdf of the actual newspaper printed each day at the Assembly.
