News for October 20-26

The Parish Photography Project

Over the course of the year, the Diocese of Atlanta has been conducting photo shoots across the diocese in order to expand their collective catalog of images as well as to provide professional, high-quality photographs for parishes to use on websites, newsletters, bulletins, printed brochures, and social media networks.

The photographer will be present at Grace this Sunday, October 20, taking photos both inside and outside, with a focus on capturing candids of our community engaged in worship. She is adept at taking photos without being intrusive; however, we apologize in advance if you find her presence disruptive.

Per our existing photo use policy, people are not identified by name in photos we use in our newsletter and online, so we ask that you NOT wear your nametag this Sunday. In addition, there is an opt-out form available at the information station if you do not want photos taken of you on Sunday, October 20 to be distributed.

We believe that photos and videos are an important visual representation of who we are and what we do. So it has been, and will continue to be, our practice to regularly include photos/videos on our website and social media sites. We captured some wonderful images last fall for use on our redesigned website, and look forward to adding additional professional photos to our collection!

Be Thou My Vision

Stewardship video #3 has been posted on our website . It looks a little different than the first two and we hope you’ll take the time to watch.

We’d love for you to return your pledge cards by Sunday, November 3. Extra cards are available at church and your pledge can also be filled out online. Thank you for your continued support!
