- Help Needed! Sound Tech: No experience necessary, will train. Needed Sunday mornings on a regular basis. Must be willing to work both 8:30 and 10:00 a.m. services on Sunday mornings. This is a paid position ($75 for Sunday mornings). We get started on Sundays at 7:00 a.m. with set up then attend a worship meeting at 7:45 a.m. to see the “lay of the land”. Our sound system is computer driven so if you use a computer regularly you can do this. I try and pre-program sound sets to help you learn the system. It is not real difficult to learn to build a sound set. This is a great opportunity to give back to the Bethany community and earn a little extra cash. Interested? Contact Laura Romig (Laura@bethany-denver.org or 303-758-2820)
