The Midweek Musings newsletter is the primary medium the Presbytery uses to share information among our members. The newsletter also promotes membership to our visitors. Our newsletter presents the Presbytery in an attractive, exciting manner and provides necessary information that encourages participation in church activities. The guiding mission of the newsletter is to advertise our Presbytery as a lively, positive, and influential spiritual community.

 Guidelines for Submissions

Items submitted for posting in the Midweek Musings should originate: within a congregation of New Castle Presbytery; from a New Castle Presbytery team, sub-team, committee, structure or related agency; or from a special mission supported by New Castle Presbytery.

Items requiring a team/committee’s approval should be directed to the committee chairperson before submission.

Submission requests and attachments should be sent to [email protected] before 11am on Wednesdays to be included in that week’s edition.
