PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. - Trish Sardinha does not like to miss a sermon at Calvary Church in Jupiter Farms. But, sometimes she watches her pastor preach online. Trish told us, "Throughout the week I have friends ask me about the service and what I have learned."
It's convenient and only a click away.
"If I am on vacation I can go online and pull up the service and listen to it and catch up and know exactly what is going on, " said Trish.
