Announcements for 7-11-21

Ministry of Music as offering: The Ministry of Music portion of the service is an opportunity for people to offer their gift of music to God as an offering.  As such, the offering plate will be passed during the Ministry of Music, as an opportunity to offer our gifts at the same time.  Thank you.

Livestream and Projectors Update: We have purchased and installed new HD livestreaming equipment! The equipment seems to be working, but we still have a few bugs to work out! Please give our tech crew grace as they learn the new system.  And of course, when we fix one problem, Satan attacks with a new problem!  The front projectors appear to be on their last leg.  Sometimes they work; sometimes they don't.  The technology company estimates new projectors will take four months to arrive.   Thank you for understanding and your patience and prayers. -Valerie Lenderink and Dave Hulstein
