Faith section is being revamped


Hopefully you’ve noticed over the past few weeks all of the changes that we are making at the Daily Record in an effort to make a better, more local and more substantial product for our readers. Our newest redesign for the newspaper is a complete overhaul of the Faith section that we believe will make the section more useful for readers and attract even more readers to the news being reported from the local church community.

The section will now be three pages each week. The first page will always feature a new story dealing with religion. Some upcoming topics include, the history of a county church, a Richland church that outgrew its old building and a man who built a replica of Jesus’ tomb. Our hope is that these new features will not only add value to the newspaper by adding another story to the inside pages, but also by bringing more eyes to the Faith section to see what all of our local churches are up to each week.

The next two pages, entitled Faith Happenings, will feature a calendar of events provided by area churches. Readers can turn to this section to see what events, everything from revivals to picnics, are going on for the coming weeks.

At the bottom of the Happenings page will be an old (but we think improved) feature, the church directory. We will now be offering a free directory listing to all churches.

In order to keep up this new section, we’re asking for a little bit of help from the community. We rely on the church community and our readers to provide us with faith-related story ideas and pictures. If you have any ideas or photos you would like to submit, feel free to email us at or call us at 532-9131. Any calendar events or pictures must be emailed to the Daily Record by Wednesday morning for a chance to be put in the Friday Faith section. We will print pictures and events as space is available.

Please bear with us as we make this transition to our new Faith section next week. Keep in mind that nothing is set in stone, and we are not taking this change lightly as we know how important this section has been for decades. If you have any questions, comments or concerns about the new section, again, feel free to contact us.
