District newsletter going digital!

To DoThe Shepherd’s Voice is going digital, and we want you to be ready when it does!

To conserve resources, the Western Plains District newsletter, The Shepherd’s Voice, will no longer be printed and mailed to postal
addresses but will be distributed by email, effective September 2014.

If you already receive your district newsletter by email, this change does not affect you; you will continue to receive your newsletter in your email inbox.

However, if you currently receive a printed copy of the newsletter by mail, you can ensure that you receive an electronic copy of each newsletter by emailing wpdcb@sbcglobal.net and asking to be added to the list.

If you do not have an email address and would like to receive a printed copy of the newsletter, you may request it from your church office. Each church office will receive the newsletter by email and can see that you receive a printed copy. If you have any questions, please contact the District Office at 620-241-4240.
