Letters to Elders & Congregations 2018

Organizational Policy of Jehovah's Witnesses

In an effort to reduce the number of letters sent to all bodies of elders and congregations, most announcements from the branch office(s) will now be conveyed to congregations by means of the Announcements and Reminders (S-147) form. The first part of the form will contain information for the elders only. If there are announcements for the congregation, these will appear on a separate page of the form. Instructions on the form will indicate which announcements are to be read to the congregation and/or posted on the information board when applicable. Information containing organizational policy will continue to be released by means of dated letters for ease of reference.

With that in mind, letters published on this page will be divided between Announcements and Reminders and Organizational Policy. As more letters are published, they will be added to their respective lists.
