El Camino Bible Church in San Antonio, TX. recently received two refurbished computers from Juern Technology as part of their '3R' computer up-cycling mission.
IT WAS TIME FOR AN UPGRADE!
Halting the service right in the middle of everything to restart the old computer was not uncommon at El Camino Bible Church before they received the replacement computers from Juern Technology. Pastor José Luis Del Angel says, “the computer [they] had was very old and it was starting to have issues. It would sometimes freeze up requiring a restart in the middle of [the] worship services". The Pastor said, "it served [them] well for many years, but it was time for an upgrade.”
“NEAL INFORMED ME THAT HE MIGHT BE ABLE TO HELP US…”
“We are a small congregation and we were trying to raise some funds in order to get one decent computer to replace the existing one. I contacted Mr. Juern to get his input as to the type of computer we should look for. He informed me that he might be able to help us with this need and donated two computers to the church…”
The previous PC had different connections and the presentation software we used was so out of date that we could not re-install it on the new computers.
Thanks to Juern Technology's generous gift, we were able to use the little money we had raised to buy a splitter box, the new cables needed and the newest version of the presentation software. “
-Pastor José Luis Del Angel
HOW USING SCREENS IN CHURCH CAN BENEFIT CHURCHGOERS
The use of screens during service is a trend that's been growing in popularity over the last decade in churches of all denominations across the country. Using digital screens to elevate a church service can not only benefit those with difficulty reading small Bible text but can also benefit those who have trouble hearing the speaker in the front of the room. Screens can be very convenient for parents with boisterous children and who need all the hands they can get to look after their "little angels".
3 Great Benefits of Using Screens in Church
- Easily follow along with lyrics and sermon.
- Finally, leave your Bible at home!
- Elevate your experience with visual aids.
THE FOLKS AT EL CAMINO CHURCH FINALLY GOT THEIR SCREENS WORKING RIGHT!
Not only did El Camino Bible Church need to replace their old computers because they were starting to give up and needed constant restarts, but their visual system still needed projection software and additional hardware, like a splitter-box and cables, to set the screens up properly. Juern Technology's donation of the two refurbished computers along with the little money they were able to raise allowed this happy congregation to get their Sunday's back in good working order. The church uses two screens at the front of the room and controls them from the media station in the rear of the room using the two refurbished computers donated by Juern Technology (pictured above). Like most congregations, El Camino uses the screens to display song lyrics so everyone can easily follow along without needing to look down to read the lyrics.
