Digital Arts

Careful thought is given each Sunday to the audio and visual needs for worship. Two of our worship spaces have screens and sound systems boards that are used to enhance the worship experience. If you have any experience in film, operating a camera, creating videos, content for worship, or stream live worship, the Digital Ministry Team would love for you to join.
