IF you are comfortable with receiving communications digitally, our preference is for you to do the following:
- Access recent Baptist Observer issue on this page (in the link above),
- Visit the “Resources” tab at the top of this website’s homepage and scroll to the 2nd section entitled, “ABC-IN/KY Region Information” to access the most recent issue at any time,
- Subscribe to our FREE “Observations” (e-news), also via the subscriptions section of the homepage, and you will be linked to Baptist Observer issues digitally (IF already receiving emails from Region communications, there is NO NEED to re-subscribe).
If you are not a pastor or local church (they receive PRINTED issues via US Mail automatically), and you would prefer receiving your own printed copy, you may conveniently subscribe using the “Subscribe to the Baptist Observer” section of the homepage or by emailing webmaster.
**Another great idea is to ask your pastor or church office to display their printed copy on a bulletin board somewhere in your church building, where you and others may review it upon your leisure!**
