All newsletter submissions must be received in writing in the MPE office by 1 p.m. on the 10th of the month preceding the issue date. If you request an ad after the deadline, we will determine on a case-by-case basis whether we can include it. If so, we will charge a late fee. The newsletter is mailed out at the end of the month preceding the issue, e.g. the February newsletter is sent at the end of January.

We are committed to protect the right and duty of parents in fulfilling the Biblical mandate to teach their children in a manner that will honor God. While this corporation is consistently and forthrightly Christian, we, at the same time, seek the above rights for all creeds.
