 PICTORIAL DIRECTORY                    

It has been three years since we last updated our Pictorial Directory. Since that time, several new members have been added to our church family as well as several other families experiencing some changes.  So it is time to update our directory.  Please sign the schedule on the bulletin board for a time for your family to be photographed by Brad Schrum or Kay Sowinski.  To make the directory more useable, we would like to have 100% of our families photographed.

If I visit a church of Christ, what can I expect to find there? What do they believe? How do they worship? How are they organized? Who are the churches of Christ?
