Website Creation Help for Congregations

Our congregation listings average about 1,300 hits every Sunday morning.

People "pre-qualify" your community as a place where they'll belong by visiting your website before they visit your building. Websites are our new front door.

Start with something simple to establish an online presence and invite people to visit.

Following best practices will help your site succeed: Updating Your Web Presence offers an introduction to those, and includes some tips for testing your site's effectiveness.

Design / Content Management Systems

  • Whether you choose to code the site yourself, or decide to use a Content Management System (CMS) with a pre-made theme, we have resources to help you design your site's look and feel.

Content

  • Our content guidelines take you from simple beginnings to a thorough checklist, and include writing tips and ready-made content like web banners and social media plug-ins.
  • Congregational treasurers offer some recommendations for accepting online donations or pledge payments.

Usability & Accessibility

  • "Usability" refers to the ease with which people can use a website in order to achieve their goal.
  • An accessible website doesn't exclude visitors due to their abilities, or the method they choose to access the web.
