Series 8 Downloads
The Wayside Pulpit has a long tradition of being a "message" on the bulletin boards outside of many churches of all denominations.
In an effort to make the Wayside Pulpit more accessible to our congregations, we are offering the latest series, Series 8, in a poster format as PDF files you can print for your congregation.
The 24 quotes below are in a 40 x 28-inch format. To print the poster full size, you may need to take it to a local copy shop, such as a Kinkos, that can handle oversized black and white printing. The average copy shop will charge approximately $1 per square foot. The posters are approximately 8 square feet so each poster would be around $8.
To print each poster, download the PDF from the link next to each quote, copy it onto a disk, bring it to the copy shop and ask for oversized black and white printing. Some copy shops can accept the file in an email, or may download the PDF directly from this website if you provide them with the URL (website address).
If you would like to print the posters in a smaller format, open the file in Acrobat, select the fit to paper option in page scaling on the first print dialog box. If your Acrobat does not allow automatic scaling, you can enter the amount to scale the poster when printing. To fit a standard letter-size sheet the scaling would be 27%.
