Contact magazine honored

11/12/2010

Dear readers,

We are pleased to announce Contact, the ­Magazine has won a national award from the United Methodist Association of Communicators (UMAC).

The Department of Communications’ role usually is one of pursuing news across our state—from Conference, district, and local church groups. We enjoy our work behind the scenes, to connect, educate, and inspire Oklahoma United Methodists.

This time, we are in the news.

Contact, the Magazine won first in its judging category (annual conferences’ magazines). The award was announced in October in San Francisco, Calif., at the association’s annual meeting. Our partner, the UMReporter newspaper, also won its category.

Two issues of the magazine were judged as a package: "Women of the Word" and "Stories from God’s Playbook." The next magazine will be published in January 2011.

The UMAC award story claims a headline here because Oklahoma United Methodists are newsmakers, living out God’s good news in effective, transforming ways. Thank you. We love to tell the stories.

—Holly McCray, editor
