House of the Lord Church: This Pentecostal church in Brooklyn places heavy emphasis on social activism. Spokeswoman Sharman Blake says the congregation plans to get online. "We are prayerful that it will be relatively soon," she says. Though ministers still resort to the old-fashioned pulpit for alerting members about political events, Blake relies on a handful of Web sites to keep the reverends informed. She says she tracks the gospel-music industry by checking in at gospeltoday.com, and gets information on the Christian community at both loveexpress.com and the "more right-wing, Pat Robertson-style" charismamag.com. Until Blake's prayers are answered, her own ministry can be reached through the American Bible Society's site at americanbible.org.
