During 2016, the print version of The Vista
will be published four times: Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall.
Current Print Issues
Congregations submit additions, changes, and deletions to the paper's circulation manager, Courtney Classen. Ms. Classen, a church office secretary at Shepherd King Lutheran Church in San Antonio, can be reached at 210-344-5881. Congregations are encouraged to submit updates as often as needed. Congregations may submit updates by E-Mail
Twice each year, every congregation receives a roster or list of its members who are receiving the paper. This is a good opportunity to audit the list to ensure that all members are receiving the paper.
Congregations are encouraged to submit changes on a timely basis, as the synod is charged 50 cents by the Post Office for each returned address.
Rostered persons, whether active or retired, receive their subscription to the The Vista through the congregation where they hold membership. Congregations should submit the names and mailing addresses of rostered persons who become members as they would any other new member.
A correspondent for each conference receives the congregational newsletters from the congregations in the correspondent's conference and forwards news to the editor.
