Methodist newspaper in Arkansas goes digital; print edition ceased in July

Posted: August 4, 2018 at 4:30 a.m.

Editions of Arkansas United Methodist are shown from 1899, 1931 and 2017. After a 138-year history as a print newspaper that pastors were at one time responsible for selling subscriptions to, the publication has been re-imagined as the all-digital magazine The Arkansas United Methodist: Living Our Faith, which debuted Friday.

It has been 30 years since Holly Grove native Jane Dennis took over as editor of Arkansas United Methodist, but her memory of discovering a computer tucked away in a closet at the denomination's office in Little Rock is still vivid.

Bound by year and with string, print copies of Arkansas United Methodist dating to 1884 remain at Hendrix College’s Olin C. Bailey Library in Conway.
