At the recent annual meeting of the BMA of Arkansas, the Publications Committee recommended a 20¢ per issue increase in our subscription rate. This brings our annual subscription rate to $39 per year (including 45 weekly issues) or only 87¢ per issue for individual subscribers. Church plan subscribers receive a $3 discount on the annual rate, so it comes out to 80¢ per issue.
I believe this is still a bargain price for all you are able to get with a subscription to the Baptist Trumpet. With this rate increase, we also wanted to make sure everyone is able to get the most for their money, so we are introducing our new “Total Access” subscription. One price ($39 or $36) gets you access to all the following:
• Printed Weekly Paper — We produce 45 issues each year and mail them out to over 7,000 subscribers, mostly in Arkansas, but some in other states as well. As an individual or church plan subscriber, you can choose to have the paper mailed directly to your home.
• Digital E-Trumpet — Every Tuesday afternoon at 5:30 p.m., when the Trumpet is sent to the printer, you can receive an interactive version of the paper as well as a standard PDF file. Any member of the family or household that resides at the subscribing address is eligible to receive their own E-Trumpet. (Note: Household emails will be limited to only receiving the E-Trumpet and the main subscriber will have the Total Access subscription.)
• Content-filled Website — All content that appears in the print and digital versions of the Trumpet is also added to our website, as well as an up-to-date Calendar of Events. We do our best to keep our readers informed about all that is happening in the BMA, from all over Arkansas to around the world, and all of that content can be accessed via the website. You can also find articles from your favorite writers and all other content that is shared in the paper.
• Baptist Trumpet Archives — The Baptist Trumpet archives contain such a treasure trove of BMA history. Every time I go in search of something, I will usually find something else interesting along the way also. You can search the history of the BMA through the pages of the Baptist Trumpet all the way back to the beginning in 1939 as the Temple Trumpet.
In order to access the premium content on the website, your customer portal (where you can manage your subscription details and make payments) and the archives, you must have log-in credentials. If you have never signed in at the website, go to BaptistTrumpet.com and click on the blue “Login/My Account” button in the top right of the screen for instructions on how to set up your account.
Our goal with the new “Total Access” subscription is to better fulfill our mission to keep our readers informed and inspired. Please take advantage of all we have to offer by getting set up today.
