A Message from the Pastor
Greetings Mt. Calvary and friends. Come let us worship and praise Him. We are approaching the third Sunday in the Season of Lent. On Wednesday at 7:30 p.m., we invite you to join with us as we "Journey to Resurrection Sunday" as we study from Luke 9:51-10:42. Use the Zoom invite for adult church school. We look forward to seeing you there. Remember to keep in prayer those on our sick and shut in list and members of our MCBC family who are grieving the loss of loved ones. Our scripture lessons for the week: Exodus 20:1-17, Psalm 19, 1 Corinthians 1:18 -25 and John 2:13-22. Look for the theme: Priorities: God the Center of Our Lives. Be Encouraged. Pastor Stowers
Celebrating Women's History Month
Marie Van Brittan Brown felt uneasy in her neighborhood and the police were unreliable. So, she took matters in her own hands and patented the modern home security system. Over 50 years later, the technology is installed in millions of homes and offices worldwide.
Brown was a 43-year-old African American nurse who worked long, late hours before returning home to Jamaica, Queens in New York City. Her husband, Albert Brown, an electronics technician, was away many nights. Crime in their neighborhood was high, and police were often slow to respond to emergency calls.
Brown needed a way to feel safer in her apartment. Specifically, she wanted a way to see and hear who was at the door — from any room in the house.
In 1966, Brown designed a closed-circuit security system that monitored visitors via camera and projected their images onto a television monitor. Not only that, but a panic button contacted the police immediately.
Brown envisioned a series of three to four peepholes at various heights; a camera would slide over these peepholes to assess the outside area. A radio-controlled wireless system would transfer the image to a monitor, or set of monitors, positioned anywhere in the residence.
At the monitor, a resident could not only see who was at the door, she could also talk with that person via a set of two-way microphones. A remote-control option allowed her to lock or unlock the door from a safe, or more convenient distance.
