Brethren Press has released the “Church of the Brethren Yearbook 2017” in a new format. Previously, the Yearbook was published as a searchable pdf file on a CD. The 2017 Yearbook is a searchable pdf on a USB flash drive that looks like and is the size of a credit card.
To download the 2017 Yearbook from the card, users simply turn the card over, press on the black USB area to flip open the flash drive, and insert the flash drive into a computer’s USB port.
The Yearbook is the annual directory of the Church of the Brethren. It includes detailed contact information for each congregation in the Church of the Brethren, along with information about each of the denomination’s districts, agencies of the church, the denominational staff, and more.
In the statistical reporting section of the Yearbook, statistics are collected for the denomination and its districts in the previous year. In the 2017 Yearbook, the statistical section reports numbers for 2016.
Those on the standing order list at Brethren Press may have received the 2017 Yearbook in the mail already. The 2017 Yearbook may be purchased for $24.95 and downloaded from the Brethren Press online store at www.brethrenpress.com/SearchResults.asp?Cat=70 or may be purchased as a USB flash drive card by calling Brethren Press at 800-441-3712.
