    This is from an online watcher. I love the Christ centered message & music & enjoy your services but every week the mics are horrible. Either there is no sound when Pastor Don starts then after a bit it blasts out & hums. I, with another, watch online & would like to hear the entire service. Many many weeks the pastor starts talking & can’t be heard so I turn up the sound then get blasted when the sound comes back on. Today December 12, ‘21 I heard only the keyboard music during the entire prayer. This is such an important ministry could you please make sure the sound system is always working? As soon as it goes from music to pastor Don, sound ususlly gets very quiet. I know you don’t want this humming sound or lack of sound going out weekly to the ppl watching online. Thank you so much. Your advent not only is special but very beautiful in appearance also. We have been blessed for many months.

    Everyone is respectful and friendly. Pastor Don is very passionate and generous. He gave me a turkey when he could have saved it for family. I had not had turkey this year till then.
