A list of some worship bulletins and their
themes may be found within the most current
edition of NAVSUP Pub 2002 (Section II
Forms). The worship bulletins in which outlines
for religious services may be printed can be
open purchased or ordered on MILSTRIP
Requisition (DD 1348) directly from Naval
Publications and Forms Center, 5801 Tabor
Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19120. For Marine Corps
activities, the worship bulletins are ordered
through the unit/activity supply office.
Religious Program Specialists should order an
adequate but not excessive supply of worship
bulletins. Orders for large quantities should be
placed early so as to provide the lead time
needed for procurement and stocking.

BULLETINS.The photo-ready copy of an
order of worship is typed in its final form on
a worship bulletin. After it is typed, it is
usually photographed and placed on a dupli-
cating master. Use of the photo-ready copy is
especially desirable when a number of an-
nouncements need to be placed in a single wor-
ship bulletin. The material can be reduced in size
in order to provide space for a maximum
number of announcements in a standard size
The standard worship bulletin form is 8-1/2
inches (from top to bottom) by 11 inches (from
side to side). The form is divided in half, conse-
quently, one page of the bulletin is typed on each
The form is 132 typing spaces wide (for
12-pitch type), therefore, each side (page) will be
66 spaces wide.
Experience has shown that typed lines con-
sisting of 54 spaces on each side or page works
well. The outer left margin and the outer right
margin should each be four spaces. This leaves
eight spaces each to the left of center and right
of center. More space is needed in the center to
allow for folding the bulletin.
FIRST STEP.Using the illustration in
figures 6-6A and B as an example, clear all of the
typewriter tabs and set the left margin four clear
spaces from the left edge of the paper. This will
give the correct point to begin typing for the
body of the bulletin on the left side. Next, space
53 times and set the tab. This setting will serve as
the right margin for the left side of the bulletin.
Return the typewriter carriage to the left margin,
count off 26 spaces and set the tab. This setting
will be the centering point for headings, song
