The Antelope Valley Press welcomes contributions to its religion bulletin board. Ads are published as a public service; articles are published as space permits and priority is given to entries that have not yet been published in the journal.

Registrations are limited to special events, as opposed to routine services and meetings in the church. Written press releases are required, including the name of the church or organization; the time, date and location of the event; cost, if any; and a phone number, email address and/or web address that the public can contact for further details.

Send press releases to Religion Editor, Antelope Valley Press, PO Box 4050, Palmdale, CA 93590-4050; fax them to 661-947-4870; email them to; or drop them near the valley press office, 37404 Sierra Highway in Palmdale. Releases must be received no later than noon on Wednesday one week prior to the event, as the bulletin board only operates in the Saturday Religion section.

For answers to questions about submissions, call 661-441-6150.
