 Writing Points
- Harper is used for many kinds of meetings. The technology requested will help those meetings run more efficiently
- YAC has very little time to do the amazing job they do of getting our teens to be active in the community.  Change the location of meetings in order to view videos and skype or do google hangouts with non-profit organizations without having to request a location  for that purpose will make their job easier
- The overflow of chapel goes to Harper.  If the chapel experiences are videotaped, people in Harper will not only hear it, but will be able to be part of the experience via video screen.
- Daily agendas and service opportunities will be made available on the screen daily.  It will be a reliable, current account of the service and youth board opportunities available.
