Assembly in Brief, the popular bulletin insert-size summary of the 220th General Assembly just concluded in Pittsburgh is now available as a free download at


The 12-page insert is chock-full of information about the Assembly, complete with color photographs.

Assembly in Brief is specifically designed for people in the pew who want a quick, readable summary of the General Assembly,” says Presbyterian News Service Coordinator Jerry Van Marter, the publication’s writer/editor. “We publish it in bulletin-insert size so congregations can use it in their Sunday worship bulletin or church newsletter, whether it’s print or electronic.”

Assembly in Brief is a partnership between PNS and the Office of the General Assembly ― Sharon Youngs, communications coordinator. It relies heavily on the writing and photography staff of the General Assembly Communications Center. The publication was designed by Sue Poss of Greenville, S.C.
