In the meantime, about 1,400 square feet of the sanctuary is off limits behind a temporary wall in front of the regular altar/stage area. Nevertheless, regular worship continues unabated. Making that possible meant rethinking the sanctuary sound system to meet both the temporary needs of the reduced space and the longer-term… View this post
