Business Meeting Proposal: The Trustees have confirmed and set forth a proposal from Somerset Media Group, for the approval of the
congregation, to address the sound concerns in the sanctuary and radio room. The proposal will be presented at the upcoming business meeting. The upgrade would replace our sound consoles that are beginning to break down, meet the monitor needs of an ever-expanding music ministry,
improve sound quality in the sanctuary where there has been uneven sound distribution and “dead spots’, and greatly improve the sound quality of our radio ministry. This proposal will also provide future audio needs for
live-streaming services and events, as well as provide new opportunities for training of sound technicians both in our church and in our community (outreach). Total cost of the proposal is $38,988 and would come from the Building Fund. If you have any questions in advance, please contact one of our pastors.
