Assistive Listening Devices
Having difficulty hearing in the sanctuary? The assistive listening options are here to help, even if you don’t wear hearing aids. Your first connection setup will take about 10 minutes with a Setup Helper to explain all the options and get you connected. The Setup Helpers will be in the back of the sanctuary on Sundays at 9 AM. Please come early to avoid the crowd.
Option 1: Use your own smartphone to use it to connect to our system, there are several steps you’ll need to complete at home before your first setup at church. Those How-To directions are here.
Option 2: Use one of the church’s numerous assistive listening devices. At your first setup, the Setup Helper will help you select which of the devices will work best for you. They will also show you how it works.
