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 online at our church website at www.dekorralutheran.org or look for our signup table at upcoming services or call Lifetouch at 1.866.756.0281.


Monday - November 19th - 2:00PM to 9:00PM
Tuesday - November 20th - 2:00PM to 9:00PM
Wednesday - November 21st - 2:00PM to 9:00PM
Friday - November 23rd - 2:00PM to 9:00PM
Saturday - November 24th - 9:00AM to 4:00PM

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.

Be sure to take advantage of the opportunity to be professionally photographed. I know that my family is definitely looking forward to getting some pictures taken for the Holidays that we can give to our relatives. We are looking forward to seeing you in our directory. I am encouraging 100%participation!

God Bless,
Pastor Ryan

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

One of the very nicest things at Dekorra
is the after worship coffee hour. Everyone loves it and we all enjoy the great  fellowship. The problem is, very few of our ladies are  serving these coffee hours and we need to have  more folks stepping forward. You can add your name to the ones already signed up, or if you and several friends (or maybe even a family!) would take a turn or two throughout the year. 

Thanksgiving Feast
Everyone is invited! Friday, November 16 is the OWL’S annual Thanksgiving Feast at 12:00 noon in the Fellowship Hall. Please join us. There is a We need salads, vegetables, rolls, pies, deserts. The sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board by the office.
