Community Church Launches Its Web Site (with Trepidation)
"The Computer Age dawned and I overslept. Actually, I've been pulling the covers over my head and trying to ignore it." So says the Rev. Daniel Hamlin in his introduction to the Greenbelt Community Church's new Web site. Despite Mr. Hamlin's reluctance to let go of his "Eberhard Faber #2 pencils," as he puts it, the Community Church has begun making information available about its activities through a site designed by Nancy Revis. At present, the developing site describes the church's worship services and children's education; each page carries a passage from the Bible. Mr. Hamlin, once he had been reassured that he would not have to give up his pencils, says that he is "excited by the possibilities of hooking the church up to the internet."
The Community Church joins four other Greenbelt-area churches that have gone online. Already on the Web are Holy Cross Lutheran Church, New Hope Korean Church, St. George's Episcopal Church in Glenn Dale, and Trinity Reformed Church (which meets in the Greenbelt Fire Department).
