A Note From the CCM about Directory Photos!
Dear Church Family,
As you are probably aware, First Lutheran is producing a new pictorial directory with Universal Church Directories.
FLC volunteers are now in the process of calling and/or emailing members that have not signed up for a photo appointment to assist or encourage them to do so. You will find some answers to some of our most frequently asked questions below. Please save our volunteers time by signing up as soon as possible by using the link below or signing up after church on Sunday. We want to make sure you are included and that your information is updated from our last directory done in 2016!
What if I can not attend any photo sessions between Sept. 26th and September 30th?
You can have your picture taken at another church or location near you before, during or after our September dates. Call United Church Directories at 419-522-5011 and they can help you schedule at another location.
What if I do not want my contact information shared and or published?
No problem! When you have your photo session, you can designate what information may or may not be shared. The photo company, UCD, will only have your contact information so that only the info you designate can be published in the directory. They will use your email and/or mailing address to notify you or send you your free 8x10 photo. After the directory is completed, your information will be permanently deleted and destroyed. Neither UCD nor church members helping with the directory will be able to access your information.
Is my contact information shared with the church office?
You will also be able to specify what information is to be shared ONLY with the church office. Church staff will not be able to share any information with anyone that you have specified to not be shared. This is a great opportunity to make sure you have updated all your information with the church office. All UCD and FLC employees follow Data Privacy rules and laws.
I need transportation or am unable to leave my residence.
FLC volunteers will provide transportation to your photo appointment. To make that request, please call the church office. We will be reaching out to our homebound members to discuss options for photos. Feel free to call the church office if you have not heard from us by Sept, 26th.
As a member of our church family, we want YOU to be a part of our new directory. There is no cost to you and you will receive a free 8x10 photo and church directory. You may also use this opportunity to include other family members and/or pets. You will be given an opportunity to purchase additional photos to be used as Christmas cards or gifts to family members and friends. If you have any additional questions, feel free to call the church office (507-934-3060) or Betsy Paul ( 507-720-5006.) Thank you for your participation!
The Congregational and Community Ministry Committee
