Photos and publications

We want to show the world what the people of St. Paul's are doing, and we encourage our members to share our news and spread the Word as well. 

Our bulletins and the Epistle newsletter are available to the public, from visitors who walk through our doors to those visiting us through, and we use photos of St. Paul's building and people on our bulletin boards and on our website. We also have a presence on Facebook and Instagram. If you prefer your likeness not to appear in any of these places, please contact the church office. 

And of course, St. Paul's has no requirement that members participate in any online activity, nor control over what individual members choose to share on their personal social media platforms. 

Thanks for staying connected with St. Paul's, in so many different ways!


If you have an upcoming St. Paul’s-related event and want to let church members and friends know about it, you can create an announcement for the Sunday worship bulletin or the monthly Epistle. 

Rules for Submitting Announcements:

  • Contact Person: The person submitting the announcement will be assumed to be the contact person, and email/phone info will be listed, unless other information is provided. (The church office email/phone cannot be used as the point of contact.)
  • Event Info: All events must have a date, location, and start AND end time.
  • Facilities: For events at St. Paul's, confirm room availability and set-up needs with the facilities manager, Tracey Furman (, before making any announcements.
  • Deadlines: For Sunday worship bulletin & Weekly News emails: Wednesday at 12:00 noon is the submission deadline for all announcements. Epistle content must be submitted by the 15th of the month prior to publication. (For the Epistle publication schedule for 2023, see the Epistle section above.)
  • Length: Bulletin announcements should be 65 words. Epistle articles should be 250 words or less. Longer articles may be added to the website. All items may be edited to meet length, style, clarity, or layout needs.
  • Required Subject Line: The word "Epistle" MUST appear in the email subject line in order for your submission to be correctly identified and included in the Epistle. The word "Announcement" should be in the subject line for bulletin & weekly news announcements.
  • Priority: We give priority to events occurring within 2-4 weeks of publication. Ongoing events and future events will be included as space and time allow.
  • Save-the-Date or Preview Items: If you are still working out event details but a publication deadline is approaching, you can share the main idea and contact person info, with other details listed as "TBA." It's fine to get people excited about something early! You will need to follow-up and provide correct, updated information as the details get settled so our announcements are as accurate as possible.
  • Photos & Graphics: We love pictures! Send *jpg or *tiff files as attachments. Fewer emails is better, so send them all in one batch if possible, and be sure to include the key word Epistle or Announcement in the subject line! 
  • Submit by Email: So, you're ready to share your announcement! Yay! Please send all announcements and other material by email to Erin Steele in the church office at: You can type text right into the body of the email or send a Word doc attachment.

Other Things to Note: If you wish for an item or event to appear, you need to provide the content! There are no "automatic" announcements generated by the office staff for any of our publications. Please submit material using the information above. To meet layout requirements, we may choose to re-run content for ongoing activities, but please do not rely on this. To discuss exceptions to the policies above, contact Erin Steele in the church office. Epistles and bulletins are publicly available and posted online, therefore we print email and/or phone contact information but do not list home addresses. We love to include photos of people of all ages! We may identify adults by name but, with a few exceptions, we do not identify children or youth in photos by name.
