Membership Management and Directory

We maintain a membership directory that includes all four.

Annette Jones, Membership Secretary, maintains a master WORD document of the directory names with physical and email addresses. It is sent out to the membership periodically with updates via email distribution and paper copies as required. Please let Annette know when there are changes that need to be made. 

Reach out to Annette if you would like to be added to the email distribution or would like the most current version of the WORD directory. 

Prospect publishes a pictorial Membership Directory periodically.  The last was published in 2017. 

Please note that names in the membership directory are selected to be Families of the Week for special prayer attention.  This is displayed in the Sunday Service PowerPoint, bulletin, and posted on Prospect's Facebook page. 

Contact Annette via phone or email.
