Church Bulletins are used in printed or mimeographed form by many congregations of most Mennonite conferences as a guide for the worship service and a source of information on the affairs of the congregation, its members, the minister, Sunday school, conference program, etc. The bulletins consist of two to six pages. As a rule, the cover is printed by publishing houses and the contents supplied by the local congregations. Numerous Mennonite archives collect bulletins from their respective constituencies. These bulletins are a good source of information on current activities of the congregations.
