As you may be aware, we've had some concerns expressed about our new sound system.  Since the Church, like most spaces, if very different when full than when empty, we need to get more input from you about exactly where and when you may have trouble hearing.  (and of course where it works well).   

So please take two minutes of your time to fill out this survey!

Please note that we made some significant improvements on Tues, Oct 1st, so please treat this survey as "things you hear after Oct 1st"
