This weekend went well as far as worship, house sound and most video support. We had some struggles with monitors and a couple missed lighting cues. Luckily we have 3 services to choose between for the web broadcast!
Most importantly, 6 people came to know the Lord, or at least asked for additional information on how to come to the Lord! Our work was well worth while!!
