Behind the Scenes: Thank You

By Ryan Kuecks, Director of Communications

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, many of you have been a part of our community through online worship. We started live streaming last year when Pastor Holly first joined us, and with that head start we were able to quickly address the challenges that this season brought with it.

Providing a high quality production in large venues such as the Sanctuary and CLC is very complex. Let us take a moment and acknowledge the hard work of the technical staff that makes this all possible. On a normal Sunday, we have 5 to 6 people running and monitoring the various audio and video equipment involved in worship. These dedicated workers have consistently showed up to church when everything around was closed. One different aspect of streaming compared to live services is that if there is a technical glitch or equipment problem you might not always be aware of it in person, whereas online you notice everything, and I personally want to thank everyone for their patience and grace.

We have come a long way with technology in a short amount of time, and still have a long way to go. But next time you see someone in a booth, setting up lights, checking cameras, or testing microphones, take a second to thank them for all their hard work.
