Church Directories not only give us a way to contact one another, but allow us to know each other better. A photo of someone in the directory allows us to put a name to the face of someone we haven’t met before but always see around!
We’re looking to update our directory in a new way this year by putting it online with photos submitted by you! Not only does this save on printing costs, but our hope is that submitting a photo you already have on your phone will be easier than sitting down for a family portrait session.
We also want to be mindful of new members to our church community. By putting our directory online, we can update it regularly with new faces, instead of every three years.
How to Submit
Take a photo of yourself or your household, and visit tinyurl.com/BMdirectory to upload.
There, you'll be asked to identify who's in your photo, and make any new updates to your contact information.
Submit your photo by Wed, Oct 30 and you’ll be entered for a chance to win a $50 Target gift card!

Frequently Asked Questions
How will I access the new directory?
It will be available on our website, bellemeadeumc.org, starting in early 2020. Members will be given a password to access.
Will there be a printed photo directory?
No, but you may request a print copy directory of names, phones numbers, email addresses, and mailing addresses from our Church Offices.
Can I use my old directory photo?
We ask that everyone supply a recent photo of themselves for the directory, and therefore we are not using old directory photos.
What if I don't have a smartphone?
Come to our Photo Booth on Oct 9 and we will take care of taking your photo and submitting it!
What about my privacy online?
This will be a password-protected online directory available only to members of BMUMC.
Photos uploaded will not show up in results on Google or any other search engine.
For additional questions, please contact Greg Thompson by calling the church office or via email: email@example.com.
