Media Use Policy
Sharing photos and videos of parishioners and events at Griffin First Assembly is a privilege for us and we intend to respect and honor it.
In this digital age, the church takes many pictures of baptisms, choir performances, concerts, worship services, mission trips, special presentations, Sunday school, fellowship activities and community outreach projects. We use these pictures to record, to promote, and to celebrate our church ministries. Pictures are used on bulletin boards, in slide shows and PowerPoint presentations, in printed publications, and on our church website and social media.
