Following the Liturgy this Sunday, January 3 we will ‘undecorate’ the church. If you can stay to help it will make the job easier and merrier for all.

We Want Your Picture! In case you haven’t noticed, it’s been a long time since we’ve had a church Pictorial Directory, and we are going to remedy that!! In fact, we plan on taking your picture ourselves and producing an online directory, as well as a printed one. All that WE NEED YOU TO DO IS GET YOUR PICTURE TAKEN. Several committee members will be in the Narthex (Lobby) after church to take your picture. Please give us 10 or 15 minutes of your time. We promise to be very quick. We will let you see the photo for your approval. We look forward to your co-operation. You can also send a photo of yourself, or a family photo. Please make sure to fit everyone closely into the picture, since it will be cropped to fit the directory format. It is easy to take a photo on your phone and email it as an attachment to Martha Babbitt mhbabbitt@yahoo.com or to Gretchen Orendi gretchenorendi@comcast.net Pictorial Directory Committee, Gretchen Orendi & Martha Babbitt – co-chairwomen. Deadline date is January 24, 2016 for pictures to be taken or pictures to be sent to us.
