 As many of you are well aware, we recently installed a monitor for announcements in the gathering space, along with a projection system for our sanctuary. We are now wanting to put together a "Techno Team" to help utilize and enhance our new capabilities. If you have some savvy and interest in this area, please talk to Pastor Randy.
