- The second Friday of every month, we serve hotdogs and pray with the homeless in downtown Kokomo. We minister to the Veterans and work with a women's shelter. We are continually seeking other ways to minister to the community.
- In the fall of 2013, we installed a Hearing Loop in our Sanctuary for the hearing impaired. The Hearing Loop is a special type of sound system for people with hearing aids or cochlear implants.
- We also have headsets for those that need assistance, but forgot their hearing device.
The hearing loop provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the hearing aid when it is set to the ‘T’ (Telecoil) setting.
The hearing loop consists of a microphone to pick up the spoken word; an amplifier which processes the signal which is then sent through the final piece; the loop cable, a wire placed around the perimeter of a specific area i.e. a meeting room, a church, a service counter etc to act as an antenna that radiates the magnetic signal to the hearing aid (no background noise, no head set to wear).
We invite you to come join us and experience the ability to hear and worship once again!
