January 2019 – Making Christ Known – New Digital Format

Making Christ Known has been published six times a year since 2004 bringing stories of mission and ministry of the Northern Illinois Synod.

Now, Making Christ Known will come to you monthly as an online source of videos, photos, and stories for you to share with your congregation through newsletters, email, your website, or social media. A special feature will be a video message from Bishop Clements.

What stories do you have to share? What would you like to see and hear? Send your stories and ideas to Deacon Karin Graddy, Communication Director at kgraddy@nisynod.org.
