Hello all, this is a quick rundown about what happened recently with the church's website. A few weeks ago I got an email from someone asking me if the church's website had been compromised.
I ran a few scans on the site and found that somehow some code had been placed on the server our website was hosted at. This was not someone deliberately attacking church websites it was probably just some automated bot out there on the Internet trying to get advertisements on other websites, but it in addition to the website getting slower and slower was enough for me to cut ties with our current website host.
I took this opportunity to upgrade all of the features and structure of the website to their respective newest versions. This is something that I had been wanting to do for a while, but I had hoped to stretch the process out over a few months, not days. Unfortunately because of the current website had been compromised I was unable to keep the majority of the code, and was forced to rebuild it from scratch.
The blessing out of all of this, is we now have a new, fast, clean website to use for God's benefit. I tried to keep the website looking and functioning as close as possible to the way that it used to, but it is very much brand new from the ground up. I appreciate everyone's patience through all of this, and I hope the improvements will allow for even more good to come from the site.
