Audio Visual

Are you tech savvy? The AV Ministry is looking for volunteers!!  Some of our AV projects/responsibilities include: videoing services and events, taking pictures, running sound systems, setting up all video, lighting, wired and wireless microphone equipment; upgrading and maintaining computers, monitors, software; security systems, etc.  You don't have to be a techno-geek, just willing to learn! We'd love for you to get involved!

 

So far this year in 2020...

We responded (and learned a lot) quickly to transition our Worship Service to Drive-In services due to COVID 19.

The biggest 2020 addition to AV capabilities was video capability.  We added a “Prosumer” quality (one step below studio quality) video camera, lighting equipment, a video quality tripod, and some wired and wireless microphone equipment suited for the camera.  We also repurposed some older AV equipment from our sound system to use with the video equipment, giving us multiple-mic capability.  Of course, just shooting the video is only part of the task, so we added a computer, large monitor, and video editing software to process the videos and then upload them.  And perhaps most amazing of all, we learned how to use all this (at least at the novice level!) relatively quickly, since we were responding to the very real need arising out of having to suspend in-person worship.  We are still learning, of course – so you will see/hear some glitches and bloopers from time to time.  We also added an FM radio transmitter so we can broadcast our services to cars in the parking lot and vicinity.

Our Meals on Wheels ministry rely on our freezers and refrigerator! This year we added temperature monitors for our freezers, done in conjunction with Property.  We lost a freezer during the year, and a considerable amount of food had to be discarded.  We have added high temperature alert monitors to our 3 freezers and our refrigerator. 

AV is an enabling ministry at Holy Trinity.  We do not decide on programming or outreach projects or evangelism opportunities.  Rather, we help staff and members and committees do their work.
