Sound by Jackman - We are still working out the bugs of our new sound system! So far, the sound is great and we are very pleased.  Here are some things to remember if you need to use the microphone for a prayer or an announcement.  Please hold the tip of the microphone about 5 inches from your mouth - this will produce good sound.  Speak normally - the microphone volume is being controlled by one of our volunteers and they will adjust the sound as necessary.  Please do not push any buttons on the microphone - it will be on, and it will be controlled by our sound volunteer.  Pushing buttons can lead to the microphone not working appropriately.
Thank you, and enjoy the sound!
