Can You Hear Me Now?

During April the Property Committee will install acoustical panels on the back wall of the sanctuary. A large percentage of bouncing sound will be absorbed by these thick panels. Hopefully, you will hear less reverberation and noise during the worship service.  Bottom line, I want to know, “Can you hear me now?” An evaluation form will be distributed after the panels are in place.  This improvement is one more step in the Capital Campaign vision.
