Overflow Viewing

New flat screen TVs were recently installed in the new fellowship hall. Overflow crowds will now be able to participate in worship for Easter, Christmas, Confirmation, funerals etc. even if there's no room in the sanctuary. Presenters will also be able to show slides & images to Bible classes, meetings & mission festivals as well.

The TVs were installed by Bonsall's TV & Appliance of Dunlap, IA. We thank Mike Bonsall, Dustin Kuhlmann & Brad Bramley for donating time to install them. We are still accepting donations through the end of June. If you would like to donate you may contact Karleen Beeck or the church office or put your donation in the offering plate- please be sure to label it. Thank You.
