As of right now, we have 1016 downloads of our services and bulletins, with a good majority of them going to services. This is since we started in March - three months. The first 10 days of June have also yielded 273 downloads; if we continue at this rate we will have over 800 for the month of June. And of course we have five services this month.

I'm most pleased but not terribly surprised that members and friends are interested in listening to a full liturgical service filled with the scriptures and supporting sound doctrine. I've looked at a lot of podcasts out there in promoting our service on iTunes and other podcasting sites, and full services are quite rare. Bethany's certainly seems worth it to me. And of course the price is right - free!

Oh, feel free to review us on your favorite podcasting site. Reviews can be quite helpful both in rankings and in getting people to understand what makes the services worthwhile.

Thanks be to God!

I have been "printing" the bulletins to pdf with two pages up. To me this makes it most like the bulletin as you would see it during church. Would you rather see it printed as single pages, giving a larger image? Or do you prefer it this way?

You may comment to this post and let me know your preference.
