Community Alerts

Your congregation is invited to submit a Community Alert.

Community Alerts highlight non-Center sponsored events and happenings in the community that may be of interest to congregations in your area and throughout the state. Items are posted on the website, and a monthly email goes out to congregations on the third Monday of each month. The deadline for submission is the previous Friday.

The news items in Community Alert are not Center sponsored. The information posted does not imply a Center for Congregations endorsement of those products, companies or services. We can accept only one item per congregation each month, and announcements must have a broad, general public interest. We will consider each submission, but not all can be included due to space, timing and content.
