As most of you know (or have realized by now) our old site went down December 20, 2018. The problem stemmed from old PHP code not being compatible with the latest version of the PHP engine on the server. I have been needing to get the site upgraded for many years but have never made the time to do it. I guess the Lord figured I needed a push to get it done! I have switched to a WordPress backend to simplify maintenance and improve the experience for the end user (you). This page will serve to keep you updated on what we’ve done so far and what’s next on the docket.
