Please click here to make an appointment online for having your photo taken for our church's Pictorial Directory. As you may remember, we will be using the services of Lifetouch, as we did five years ago. You will receive one 8 x 10 portrait and a directory for each family or individual, just for having your photo taken, and there will be no pressure to purchase anything else unless you choose to do so. When you sign up online for your appointment time, you can conveniently select having a phone reminder and/or an email reminder for your sitting. Please watch for the folks in the gathering area who will be helping set up appointments if you need assistance.
