The first weekend in May is upon us, and that means our church will be a busy place! Our men’s group will be parking cars for the Magic Dragon Car Show, we begin our early service (8:15 am) on Sunday, May 6th and I will be leading a month-long Sunday Study, “The Bible and Other Stuff” in the chapel between the two services at 9:30 am! As we return to our in-season schedule, I hope you will make it a point to be here for all of the great things that happen here at LOCC. Our family is more complete when you are here. As we gather to give thanks to God, affirm our traditions, and enter into new callings to share the Good News of Jesus Christ, I look forward to seeing you here, there, and everywhere. We are much better when we do ministry together, and you are an important part of our plan!
In the next few weeks, you will be hearing more and more about our new church directory that will allow us to keep updated on all our church family. This new directory will not require you to come in for a professional portrait sitting. It will allow you to submit photographs of your choosing (honoring copyright laws). You will also be able to change your photographs when you wish! So…..take a selfie of yourself, or family and send it to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org Please put “Directory” in the subject line …or…. we can take one for you! We will have people taking photos after church the next few weeks.
How easy is providing a picture? Here is an example of a selfie I took with our kids during Children’s Moment in worship a few weeks back. Just make sure your pic is clear and lighting is good so that you can be seen. Selfie lessons will be available to those who need help!
After that, we will be able to access the directory online, and all of your information can be updated as you wish it to be, including your picture! For those who wish, hard copies can be printed. You will be able to access the directory from your computer or mobile device.
Any time a directory is made, it is outdated before it is delivered. This directory will allow us to be more current with information and allow us to more easily share information.
This directory will not be complete without you! I hope you will be part of this new opportunity to be in our family album. There is no cost to you, but your taking part will be priceless.
