The Epistle

The first newspaper of Nineteenth Street Baptist Church was named The Church News and was published from 1962 to 1966 during the pastorate of Rev. Dr. Jerry A. Moore Jr. The idea of a church news publication was revived a decade later when I. Benni Singleton, a PR veteran, launched a newsletter named The Epistle in 1977. He recruited other talented church volunteers to help with photography, layout, editing, and writing. The Epistle continued as a print publication until early 2015. After a brief hiatus, The Epistle was relaunched in January 2016 as a monthly e-newsletter distributed via email. Issues are posted and archived on the church website. Links are listed below.

The Epistle remains true to its founding mission to “present news and views of interest for and about our church, members, ministries, and services.” It contributes to all of the Church Core Values, especially to increasing active membership and improving membership ministry engagement.

Karen E. Williamson and Lydia N. Cole currently serve as editor and assistant editor, respectively. Interested volunteers, news items, and photo submissions are always welcome and should be sent to Epistle@19thstreetbc.org.
