Church Sanctuary Air Quality Improvements
For the safety and health of our worshippers, we have installed in our sanctuary an advanced air purifying/neutralizing system, like those being used in hospitals and schools. This system eliminates airborne bacteria, mold, and viruses. It eliminates 99% of sneeze germs within 3 feet, and even eliminates 99% of viruses on surfaces.
