Pictorial Directory


To schedule your photography session CLICK HERE.

As 2019 is Immanuel’s 150th year anniversary, we will be doing a new Pictorial Directory.  The dates Lifetouch will be at Immanuel to take pictures will be May 9, 10 and 11, 2019.  A “make-up” date will also be chosen for anyone who cannot be present during those dates, but please mark your 2019 calendars.  It is important to have everyone represented in the Directory. 

Thank you—the 150th Anniversary Committee.

Dear Families and Friends,

We need YOU to make our directory complete! To celebrate our church family and strengthen the bond within our congregation, we welcome you to be a part of our upcoming new directory.

 A new directory: 

  • Preserves this special time in the life our church
  • Becomes a lasting record of our current membership
  • Helps us connect faces with names

We are partnering with Lifetouch for this important project. Lifetouch is providing the directory at no cost to our church. Every family photographed receives a complimentary directory and an 8x10 portrait. You can sign up for photography at our signup table at upcoming services or call Donna Wagoner at 542-4853 or call Lifetouch at1.866.756.0281.


Thursday                                                  May 9th                                     2:00PM to 9:00PM

Friday                                                       May 10th                                  2:00PM to 9:00PM

Saturday                                                   May 11th                                  10:00AM to 5:00PM


For your convenience, all photography and portrait viewing will take place at our church with NO sitting fee. You will have a variety of poses taken. One pose will be selected for the directory. In addition to your complimentary 8x10, you will have the opportunity to purchase additional portraits on the day of your portrait session.  Lifetouch’s portrait price lists are available in the church office for those would like them prior to photography.

Be sure to take advantage of the opportunity to be professionally photographed. We are looking forward to seeing you in our directory. I am encouraging 100% participation!

Your Minister,

Pastor Wade Brandt

P.S. Your photography session will take about an hour, during which time you will check-in, be photographed and view your portraits.
