Administrative Handbook Pages for Downloading

This page allows you to download pages from the Administrative Handbook. The usual technique is to Right-Click on the underlined link, then Save target As and save it to a spot on your hard drive. I find the best way is to make a folder on your desktop called 'Church Downloads' and put it all there.
