Directory Photos

Directory Photos – One Last Chance!! We are (finally) in a position to finish the Church Pictorial Directory, and as part of that, you have another chance to have your picture taken, if you did not already. Photo sessions will be offered, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, September 26th, 27th, and 28th, in the Education Building. You can sign up online, using this link Sign up for Photo Session or by calling the church office. If you sign up online, please schedule one 10-minute appointment for every two people being photographed. (For example, if there are 6 persons in your family, sign up for 3 10-minutes slots.) That will help prevent a logjam of people waiting for the picture session.
