Ward/Stake Newsletters on LDS.org

Update (16 Nov 2016): The Newsletter function on LDS.org will be discontinued effective December 31, 2016. Please use other means of communicating newsletter information to ward and stake members, such as printed newsletters, email, or other online programs. Guidelines for using online resources in Church callings may be found at internet.lds.org.

Newsletter is a new option on LDS.org that can be used by wards, stakes, branches, and districts to publish news and messages to their members. This is an online alternative to paper or email newsletters that organizations typically create. It’s also a replacement for the “News and Information” section of the old ward and stake websites (ward.lds.org) that are now replaced by the new LDS.org functions Calendar, Directory, Newsletter, and Lesson Schedules.

One advantage to using the new Newsletter is that it is always accessible on LDS.org and available to any member of your ward or stake who can sign in with an LDS Account, regardless of whether the member is on your email list, in attendance on Sunday, or even active. The newsletter gives members an opportunity to get inspirational updates, news, messages, and other information from their leaders at any time.

To access the newsletter, go to LDS.org and click Sign In, and then click Newsletter. You will be prompted to sign in with your LDS Account.

Once your ward or stake has published articles, they will appear on the newsletter homepage, arranged with the newest information at the top. You can filter the articles you want to see by selecting a category on the right.

Information and training for leaders who will publish articles can be found at “‘Newsletter’: A New Tool Available on LDS.org for Publishing Newsletters.”

    The current lack of a notification system really reduces the usefulness of this tool unfortunately. I doubt many people will log in to lds.org and go check their newsletter section every day to see if there are updates.

    Joseph, the newsletter does not have a broadcast e-mail function, but a future release may include this feature. In the meantime, after you create a newsletter article, you could let your ward or stake know the article is available by sending an email by using the email links in the LDS.org directory. Leaders have a “Send a Message” option at LDS.org/leader where they can send a mass email to everyone in the ward.
