Follen uses photography and video to record services and other events. Our photo policy is based on a principle of implied consent, which means that by participating in a Follen event, participants give permission for any photographs or videos taken of them (or their minor children) to be published by the church.

Important points:

  • “Follen event” covers any Follen activity. In addition to regular Sunday services, this includes Follen-sponsored events such as the East Village Fair, Cape Cod Weekend, the Fellowship Dinner, etc.
  • If you don’t want to give this consent, there is a simple “opt-out” form below (fill out and send to the church office at the address given) or contact the church administrator.
  • As in the past, the Joys, Sorrows and Concerns portion of the Sunday service is not recorded.
  • Services that include testimonials provided largely or exclusively by young people, such as the Coming of Age service or the FUUY service, will not be provided for broadcast, but will be available to directly associated Follen members and friends.
