Hood UMC Photo Use Policy


Including photos on our websites or printed materials of parishioners and events at Hood UMC is a privilege for us, and we intend to respect and honor it. Therefore:


  • Photos are almost always of people in public spaces, and/or at public events.

  • We will not knowingly post anything that would be embarrassing, objectionable, or hurtful to anyone in the photo.

  • We do not identify children or youth by name in the photos we post.   Adults may occasionally be identified, but only if prior permission is given.

  • We will gladly remove any photo upon request. If you see a photo that includes you or your child and would like it removed, please call 417-732-2919 or notify the church office with the details.


We ask for your respect in return. Unless otherwise indicated, photographs throughout our websites or printed materials are the property of Hood UMC and may not be used for any purpose (including but not limited to: downloading, printing, distributing, linking) without permission from Hood UMC.  Please call 417-732-2919 or write to us at 139 N. Walnut, Republic MO 65738 if you have any questions or concerns about our Photo Use Policy.


Thank you
