We’re working with Lifetouch to produce an updated Church Directory. As part of this effort, Lifetouch will be taking family portraits. We’re asking that each family schedule a photo session between Thursday, March 19th, through Saturday, March 21st.
You can schedule your photo session for the new church directory by following this link: http://bit.ly/fmfbphotos.
If you sign up through that link, you’ll receive a $10 coupon towards the optional purchase of photos for your family. And if you bring a non-perishable food item with you for the local food bank, you’ll receive another $5 off the option portrait purchase.
Keep in mind that each family will get one free 8×10 portrait and a free Church Directory. If you choose to purchase additional portraits, you’ll enjoy a 20% discount off normal prices and can use the coupons mentioned above.
Hurry and sign up soon to make sure you can find a time that works for you! Visit http://bit.ly/fmfbphotos today!
