  1. Go to Sharefaith’s church newsletter page. If you’re not a Sharefaith member, please sign up here.
  2. Find a church newsletter design you want.
  3. Choose the download format you will be using and download the file. Most of our users prefer the MS Word newsletter templates, but many go for the publisher newsletter templates. Choose the download format for the program that you’re most familiar with. Remember, if you use another word processing program (like Pages for Mac), the church newsletter templates will still work for you (in most cases). To test your word processor, use the MS Word newsletter templates rather than the publisher newsletter templates. 
  4. Open up the church newsletter file that you just downloaded.
  5. Customize the church newsletter. Most of the time, this will be a process of simply cutting and pasting your already-written articles into the church newsletter. You’ll also need to edit the title and other information. If you won’t be using all 3-5 pages of the church newsletter template, just highlight and delete the unused sections. If you need more than the number of pages provided by the church newsletter template, just copy/past whatever page formats of the template you want to use for your additional material.
  6. Print the church newsletter or publish a church newsletter by whatever means you wish. Read more about how to publish a church newsletter.

  1. What an exceptional article and website as well. As a bi-vocational pastor of one of the smallest and poorest churches in my state (Kansas), this is just what our small flock needs. We just created our own church director by desk top publishing. Thank you for all of these areas of your expertise. My sincere thanks and compliments.
