We are working on our next pictorial directory. We will be working with Instant Church on line to create our directory, so there will be no high pressure to buy additional pictures. What we need is a good close up picture of you (the family). All the people listed in your address in the current directory should be in the photo. If you are using a cell phone, please turn off the "Live" setting, otherwise the picture is too blurry for use. We prefer not a "selfie" because it would not show your hand and arm. Please allow some space for cropping.  If you have quite a few members in your family, please make sure that their faces are all close together in the photo.You can email them to the church at If you do not have a way to get a photo there will be dates set up for photos to be taken, dates will be determined soon. 

We would appreciate if you turned in your own picture but if you are not able to, please sign up on July 7 in the fellowship hall for a time slot for one of the following days in the parsonage:  July 21 or 28, 11:00-12:30   or August 2, 3:00-5:00, 6:00-8:00PM.  Anyone that is a member or an attending non-member is encouraged to submit a photo!  Questions? contact the office extension 1.

This directory will have an app associated with it so you can access the directory on your mobile device. In order for you to access the directory we will need to have your email address. If your email address is not in the current directory, please get it to the office. If you do not have an email address be assured that we still will be printing black and white copies.
