ASSEMBLY NEWS AVAILABLE IN MANY WAYS

"News Briefs" will not be published again until August 4, since the
staff of the Presbyterian News Service will be in Cincinnati covering the
207th General Assembly (1995).
News from the General Assembly will be available to Presbyterians in a
variety of ways:
* VoiceLine: Each day, beginning July 14, a two-minute summary of the
day's events will be available on VoiceLine, the Presbyterian Church's
automated telephone information service. A new report will be available
each day after 6:00 p.m., Eastern Daylight Time. To reach VoiceLine, call
(800) 872-3283. During times PresbyTel is staffed, a telephone consultant
will answer and transfer you to VoiceLine at your request.
* PresbyNet: The text of each VoiceLine news summary will be posted on
PresbyNet, the Presbyterian Church's computer communication network. Join
the meeting "REPORTS FROM 207TH GA PCUSA".
Every news story produced by the General Assembly newsroom staff will
be posted in the PresbyNet meeting "PRESBYNEWS".
