The time has finally come for a new church directory, in response to many requests. However, this one will be significantly different and likely, much more meaningful than just a photo and contact list; This directory will also be our 2020 church time capsule!
We have set up a Google Form (a website) for you to use to submit your info and photos. The link is below. Before you click the link to our Google Form, we have a few thoughts to share with you.
If you have more than one address (seasonal homes, college addresses, etc.) you are encouraged to list all of that information on this form- please indicate the function of each address/phone number/email addresses per family member.
If at any point you need help with photos (taking one, uploading one) you’ll have the chance to ask for help ON THE FORM. We are looking for images to reflect YOUR CURRENT SITUATION, and that means we are not looking for the family portrait from the last directory, or an “oldie but favorite” photo… let’s represent our authentic selves TODAY. NOTE: We may need to crop your photo if your face is too small, so please make sure you’re large enough to be recognized! And try to take off sunglasses (wink, wink!)
Lastly, we provided some prompts to help you write a BRIEF reflection. It’s meant to be brief but some are more comfortable writing than others. Please ask for help if you need it… we are here to care for each other, because THAT’S WHAT WE DO at First Presbyterian Church of Whippany; We love each other. Please limit your reply to 100 words, so the committee doesn’t have to decide what to eliminate from your response… THIS IS WHAT WILL MAKE THIS DIRECTORY PERSONAL, MEANINGFUL AND A KEEPSAKE FOR OUR MEMBERS. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this.
This time capsule directory will be sent out as an electronic file (PDF) for your convenience as soon as it’s complete. We will be looking into having a printed copy soon, however we felt it would be especially important to give everyone access right away!
Please take time to complete this form by July 1, 2020. Rest assured that if you cannot complete it all at once, the settings will allow you to return to it and add more information as many times as you need to. Again, PLEASE complete by July 1, 2020. God bless you!
