Remember those good old days when every member in the Church had a phone directory with all the members in the Church listed.
Unfortunately we have to be very wise in doing this method anymore. With Social Media and Email it has made it easier to contact members of the Church.
Some Pastors like to keep in contact with everyone, so here’s a form where they can do that PLUS have a photo consent paragraph added into the form.
Text of sample below
