Last night at board meeting, someone raised the idea of possibly eliminating the landline at church. I keep my office in the parsonage, since I don't have a secretary (other than our volunteer, unpaid secretary (my wife)), and since we don't want to heat the church just for one person to be in the office. I will often meet people at the church if needed, but the phone serves mostly as a gateway to the church answering machine, and a number to be published in the phone book.
Does anyone go landlineless at church? What are the pros/cons of doing so?
It seems like there must be a way to port that number to another service--either an add-on cellphone or a google voice number. But would we lose our listing in the phone book?
