Media Policy

Home / Schedule / Media Policy

Media images and recordings help tell the story of our faith community. They enhance the quality of information we provide to our members and give visitors an idea of what to expect. We share media items recorded at our various activities, events and programs in church-produced materials. Such material includes — but is not limited to — videos, photos, bulletins, posters, brochures, newsletters and other printed materials, and on the church website.

Accordingly, participation in church activities implies permission for publication of any media recorded, unless a signed “Media Images Opt-Out Form” is on file with the church office. This applies to anyone who attends our church except children: Any child without the Image Permissions and Use form on file will not have their image used in any publicity. We reserve the right to photograph and record church events. However, in an effort to respect your privacy, we will strive to adhere to the following guidelines:

Any adult may complete the Media Images Opt-Out Form if they do not wish for media items in which they or their minor children are prominently featured to be used in Linder Road publications.

  • No identifying information will accompany photos, including names, addresses, email addresses, family members’ names, or schools.
  • Anyone may request a particular media item which prominently features them or their minor children be removed from use by submitting a request to the church office.
  • If you submit images to be used by Linder Road, you are giving the church the right to use the photos. These images must not contain any copyrighted material without permission.
  • In addition to this policy being posted to the church website, the following will be published periodically in the weekly bulletin and monthly newsletter.

We love to share our Church family story with others and so you’ll see a lot of photos and videos being taken and shared in many ways. If you don’t want your image to be used in our story telling, please contact the church office by email.
