We are in the process of creating a new photo directory for our church. Instead of utilizing a company to take photographs and create a directory for us, we have elected to do this ourselves. We will have a volunteer take photos of our members after church services on May 5, May 12 and May 26. (The 19th is unavailable; if you signed up for this date, please choose one of the other choices.) We will hold two sessions each day: 1) after the first service from 9:15 to 10:15 am and 2) following the second service from 11:45 am to 12:45 pm. Please sign up, in the narthex, for one of the dates and times on the sheet. We will create our new photo directory and will send out a digital copy to all members with an email address.
