The live streaming system has become an integral part of worship, and is in need of an overhaul to maintain its reliability moving into the future. The Church Council is seeking volunteers to evaluate the current live streaming system and suggest and help implement changes to bring the system up-to-date with current technology and possibly expand its capabilities. If this suits your skill set, please contact Pastor or use the Contact page on this website.
