Because the equipment is estimated to cost about $5,000.00 a special voters meeting was held after worship Sunday, June 20, 2021 where it was approved to permit the board of Trustees to purchase and install this equipment. If you would like to contribute to the costs, or allocate your Thrivent Choice Dollars or unassigned memorial funds on behalf of your family, please let Church Treasurer Becky Dorale, or the Church office know. Thank you.
