Notice About Sunday Service Recordings

We have now transitioned to digital archival recording of Sunday services, and we are no longer making archival cassette tapes of the Sunday services.  We are making plans to have approved sermons available online in the future.  Meanwhile, if you would like a digital mp3 copy of an approved Sunday sermon, please provide a USB flash drive to Bruce Mount, and state the date of the Sunday service of which you would like to have a sermon copy.  Flash drives of 16 Gb capacity can be purchased on Amazon.com for as little as $5.00, and many other places as well, but a USB drive of any capacity would be OK.  Recordings of Sunday services have been archived starting from the service of Sunday, May 15, 2016.
