Kennedy Church Updating Photos

KENNEDY – Kennedy First United Methodist Church is updating its church directory and invites all families to be a part of it. Photographs will be taken by Lifetouch. Since there are fewer places to get family pictures taken, this is an opportunity for families to do so. Each family will get a free 8-by-10-inch picture with no obligation to purchase any others. By having a portrait taken, the church is able to get additional pages or features added to the books. This does not obligate you to have your picture in the directory. Sitting appointments can be made by calling the church office at 267-2645 or you can schedule it online through the church website, www.kennedy1stumc.org. Photographs will be taken 12:30-7 p.m. Friday, April 11, and 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, April 12. Appointments are required.

Emily Dickinson was one of 19th-century America’s greatest and most prolific poets.
