Important Information for Members Directory

The online church directory is accessible to members and select authorized individuals.  It may show members' names, photos (if available), addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses per household and per individual.

If you have not previously designated what you what displayed in the directory or withheld, the default is to display household and individual names, photos (if available from old directories), address, and household phone number.

The directory allows you to update your household and your individual directory information: address, phone number(s), and email address(es). Changes you make are passed to the church database for official use as well. You can also indicate whether specific items are listed in the directory or not and whether you are to be listed or not.

You may upload a photo of yourself.  If you want to upload a photo of yourself in the directory, please use a horizontal picture (landscape), as a vertical picture may show up sideways.

Opting Out of the Directory

If you are not interested in access to the member information and wish to exclude information from the directory, submit the Member Directory Opt-Out Form.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can two of us share the same access?

There is nothing to stop you from doing so as long as you adhere to the access policies.  However, each access is a personal access based on a personal email address, and the person assigned this email address is able to edit and hide their own personal information, not the personal information of others, such as a spouse or child.

What can I update in the directory?

You can edit your household information and your personal information for the email address you are using for access.  This includes photo, address, phone number(s), and email address(es).  Please, do not change family name.  You can also edit your personal phone number(s) and email address(es).  You can choose to list/display the address, individual phone numbers and individual email addresses.

The information you provide is stored in the church management system used for administration.

My spouse wants changes I can't make.  What should I do?
