An Easy Way to Serve! The projection ministry allows the congregation to view the weekly announcements, sermon slides, and text to the hymns and/or praise songs. Without the Projection Team, our congregation would not be able to participate in shared worship, learning and reflection together. You don’t have to have any special skills except the ability pay attention! The most important quality a volunteer is that you possess a willingness to learn and some sort of vision for the role of projection in our services. There is a brief training period (about 30 minutes long) necessary to become a volunteer. If you would like to see all that is involved before making a final decision, contact Mariann Reinke, Director of Worship, at email@example.com or 419-494- 3335 to make arrangements to sit with a scheduled volunteer on a particular Sunday.
