Northwood United Methodist Church in Esko, MN - www.northwoodesko.com

General Notes:

This site is powered by Jekyll and hosted through GitHub pages at http://www.northwoodesko.com. If you have any questions about this website please contact wandersen02@gmail.com.

The look is based on "Business Casual" by Start Bootstrap.

Developer Notes:

Philosophy

This site is intended to require as little maintenance from the church staff and the developer as possible. All of the pictures are being pulled from the church's existing Facebook page. The bulletins, newsletters, and documents are coming from an IFTTT recipe that pulls them out of a gmail inbox and puts them in a public dropbox folder. YQL is then used to scrape out the contents of the dropbox folder. See this file for more information.
