It is Official-We Are Looped!

The newest technology in hearing assistance is here! We are happy to unveil the Looping of our Sanctuary and Parish Hall. Looping technology transmits sound directly to hearing aids, creating a clear and pleasant listening experience for those with hearing loss. If you do not have a hearing aid, or just want to give the new technology a spin, we have headsets available before each Service and will be providing them at other events and large meetings in Parish Hall.

If you would like to make a donation to this project - small or large - or to find out more about looping technology, please visit the Hearing Assistance table in the Courtyard - look for balloons!

Thank you to our generous donors thus far!
