Communications Request Form

Use this form to request publication of information about your ministry, group or event through one or more of the communications channels at Alpharetta First United Methodist Church.

The Communications Office makes every effort to publish submitted information via available communications channels. Submissions are reviewed regularly to ensure information is received within the designated deadlines, is complete and accurate, reflects the mission of our congregation and fits with the overall communications strategy of our church.

Revision or editing of articles is at the discretion of the Communications Office. Submitted information may be published in all or some of the media selected on this form — or in completely different communications channels — based on a number of factors including timing, available space, the complexity of publicity requests and the church’s over-arching communications strategy.

Please submit information to be publicized according to the following schedule:

    • Bulletins & E-news: For simple announcements, 12 p.m. on the Monday before publication.
    • Digital signage and video/slide announcements: Two weeks prior to date of publication.
    • Large events requiring registration (ex. Vacation Bible School & community events): For sufficient promotion, five months prior to the opening of the registration period.
    • Regular events requiring registration (ex., classes): Three weeks prior to the opening of the registration period.
    • Regular events not requiring registration: Three weeks prior to the opening of the registration period.
