faces together, and will be especially
useful to Pastor DeAnn as she begins
her ministry with us. If you haven't yet
submitted a photo for the Genesis Directory, we urge you to do so ASAP.
Simply send a selfie, or digital photo to
MaryBeth,
[email protected],
to be uploaded to the directory. If you
aren't’ digital yet, you may drop off a
regular photo to the office to be scanned
in. Please indicate who is in the picture
and whether you want it back or not.
