CHICO, Calif.— Esplanade Seventh-day Adventist Church members have flocked to visit a fellow member who was hospitalized shortly after church yesterday.
Phied Bach, an AV booth volunteer, began experiencing nausea after being relieved of his duties mid-service.
On his first officially unaccompanied Sabbath, Bach’s beginner AV skills could not keep up with Senior Pastor Kafi Neighted’s energetic prancing onstage.
The result was what a longtime member described as “the longest 28-second mechanical screech in our church’s history.”
Pastor Neigted froze next to a large speaker and locked furious eyes with Bach, who frantically tried to kill the noise to no avail.
Bach stumbled from the booth moments later having been replaced by a more experienced volunteer.
