The Photography group  meets one Sunday a month (usually the 3rd Sunday but can vary depending on other activities)  in Neumann at St. John's to discuss photography and digital cameras and share photos from a particular theme for that month.  We meet after the 10:00 am service at around 11:15 am.  The group is open to anyone interested in photography, whether it is digital or not.

Facilitator:  Rod Snavely,
