BULLETIN HELP ON RW SERVICES
Formatting attractive and user-friendly bulletins or worship folders for special services is a challenge. The bulletins we receive from different churches come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes and formats. When we choose services to publish in RW, we redesign them to provide a consistent format, and we often provide additional information. For example, rather than printing a given hymn (including words and music) that may have been in the bulletin, we may simply list some hymnals where it can be found.
We thought many of our readers might find it helpful to see how a bulletin or program originally looked. Starting in this issue, we will make available copies of the bulletins we receive to give you some ideas for formatting your own. We already provide computer disks with those services on disk, "lb receive a copy of the bulletin, simply send us $2.00 US. and a stamped, self-addressed large envelope; use the order form on the inside front cover.
