150th Church Pictorial Directory Sign-Up

Thank you for the great response to the sign-ups for the new pictorial directory photography sessions! The first session (July 30 - August 3) has only a couple slots still available,but there are plenty of times for the August 27 - 31 dates.The directory will be a wonderful asset to our new pastor, as he puts names to faces, as well as for each of us to identify those folks that we don't know.

Sign-ups will be continuing before Saturday worship, between Sunday morning 8 and 9:30 services and before 11:00, after worship at North, and before Wednesday worship.
