St. Peder’s Member’s: Sign up for Photos with Lifetouch Photography

Do you ever see people in church and wonder what their names are? Have you ever heard an announcement regarding a member and wishes you could put a face with a name? Are you new to our church and wish you had something to help you put names with faces? Well, help is on the way! We are producing a pictorial directory for our church. There is no cost to you or to the church to have your photograph taken, and you will receive a complimentary 8×10 portrait and directory for participating. You will be able to view your images electronically immediately after you are photographed. At that time, you will have the opportunity to purchase additional portraits to share with family and friends. We look forward to “seeing you in pictures!”

You may sign up on Wednesday nights or Sunday mornings at church, call the church office at 612-722-8000 or sign up online.
