The Multimedia Team Needs Your Help!
If you know which key on the keyboard is the space bar, you are well on your way to enjoying an exciting career in multimedia services! We are currently in need of two people to help out with multimedia duties during second service, which works out to approximately one service per month. While familiarity with a computer is a plus, your primary role will be to advance the slides in sequence with the service. The slides will already be prepared by the person running the first service, and the computer will already be set up, so your time commitment will only be a few minutes more than the length of the service (which you would be attending anyway, right?) Please prayerfully consider this opportunity to plug in and "Sign me up!" Feel free to let me know if you have any questions, or if you would just like to watch the magic happen some Sunday before making a decision.
