SERVING THE CHURCH THROUGH TECHNOLOGY: Are you someone that likes to put up content and interact with people online? We are looking for 1-2 people to help maintain Corsica CRC/Grace Reformed presence on Facebook and YouTube. One of the most frequent ways people look at a church is through what they put on the internet. Updating information and including sermon audio/video has become a fruitful ministry for both our church members and non-members. If interested in helping, please talk to Pastor Dan.
