Pastor Update 

Pastor Update  
February 9th, 2018  
We're not Slow moving...          
We have SPEED! 
Comcast Cable installed a line down Bellwether this week to our church.  We have subscribed to Comcast cable once they finish with the installation. The cost for Comcast will be about $30.00 more a month than we are paying for Centurylink.  However, in the price we will now have 4 cameras, two for outside security, as well as 2 for inside security.  In addition, we will have download speeds of 150 MBPS vs. 13.27 from Centurylinkand upload speeds of 20 vs. 1.98 from Centurylink.  (Karen and Fred are very happy) An incredible speed difference. Because of the slow centurylink speeds recently, we were unable to live stream the Superbowl at church, or live stream from our Facebook page the recent harp concert from Open Bible by Elisabeth Hainen. Rather than wait 15 minutes to upload the audio sermon to our website, now the upload will be completed in a couple of minutes. Members will be able to tie into our internet system with their tablets or phones and have super high speed access anywhere in our building. 
Upgrades At Open Bible  
The flower room off the altar area now has a refrigerator to store flowers, and extra cabinets (Recycled ones removed from the kitchen) that Roger Otto, Huns Gustrowsky, and Dan Blaho installed this past week.  The banner holder was moved to the pastor's room off the altar. A closet that stored gowns and vestments was removed to make way for the banner holder.  Extra pastor gowns and vestments are now located in the closet located in the fellowship hall.
