BR makes COVID-19 adjustments

The coming months will be a defining period for the Biblical Recorder, just as it will be for individuals, churches and other organizations. The global coronavirus crisis has touched nearly every area of life. Yet, this pandemic has not weakened our commitment to ensure North Carolina Baptists have access to the information and inspiration you need.

In that spirit, we are taking proactive steps to adjust our news delivery methods according to the economic realities facing us all. Beginning with the next print issue on May 2, we will temporarily suspend complimentary copies of the print edition for three months. Paid subscriptions will continue uninterrupted.

The Biblical Recorder’s digital edition – a PDF version of the newspaper – will still be available to all visitors. You can also browse our digital archives.

Our news team will continue to publish news and inspiration on a daily basis through all of our digital channels, including our new text messaging service launched last month called “BR Connect” to keep you up-to-date with the latest news.

The $3-per-month subscription gives you direct access to our news team, allowing participants to send in questions or story ideas. Click here to subscribe.
