A new sign up sheet is on the bulletin board (East entry). It’s a sign up for those interested in learning how to operate the sound system.  We are in need (especially during the summer months) of individuals to run the sound system during worship, as well as for other special events.  If this is something you would like to help with, please list your name. Info on training will be made available in the near future. Thank you!
