The good folks at Trinity United Methodist Church in Elkhart, IN have had a SnapShot Website for their church for the last 5 years. Just this past month though, they decided it was time for a major redesign of this church website. Since they are using the SnapShot tools to manage their site, the entire redisign process took only a matter of hours as they switched to a different template, make a few custom changes to the new template, then clicked through each page of their site to make sure everything was in place.
Check out the new look and feel at www.3umc.org.
We wanted to show you a great Church website that is incorporating some simple and clean design pieces that give it a great look and feel. The church, Mosborough Elim Church in the U.K. has set up a sub navigation on their site. It's really 4 simple images that they have dropped into their site and shown on every page. This, in essence, ensures that wherever someone is on the site, they will have a quick and easy way to get to the contact info, the service time info, and the info for guests with a simple click. The design that they have used for these images looks amazing. It fits well with the look they have implemented on their site.
Another thing to check out while you peruse their site, www.mosboroughelimchurch.co.uk, is the way that they have used sub-header images on each of their pages to build a sense of continuity all through their site. Make sure to check it out and as always, let us know if you'd like us to help you do something similar with your site.
One of the beautiful things about SnapShot Web is that you start with a template for your website but you can make all kinds of changes and tweaks to that template to "make it your own."
Let us show you a beautiful example. Grace United Methodist Church, in Merritt Island, FL had a particular look and feel in mind as they were considering putting together a website. Since none of our templates were a perfect match for them, we just had them choose one that was close and then we talked them through the process of changing a few images and a few colors and they were all set with what you see now.
All that to say that adding custom headers, logos, colors, images, and more is not only possible but we highly encourage it and we'll help you with the process. Click through their site and check out some of the things that they're doing. As always, please let us know if we can answer any questions for you or help you with your web needs in any way.
