Wednesdays, May 23-Simple Event Coverage
7:00pm to 9:00pm

Access Framingham has recently purchased small Sony camcorders that are now available for our members to borrow. We purchased these with the intent of having enough cameras for area houses of worship to be able to use them for weekend services. They are High Definition, able to take an external audio source, and are very easy to use.

Please let us know if you or another church representative is available to join us.

Free with AFTV membership.
