How to Engage and Follow Up with Your Visitors Online

By: Samantha Decker
November 13th, 2018

Here’s a common misconception a lot of churches have about their website… It doesn’t really connect us with anyone. Believe it or not, we hear this a lot! So many people think that their website is simply for information, not connection. It’s seen as a place where people come, look around, find what they need, and leave. Sure, that’s one way your website can work, but it’s certainly not the only way. In fact, it’s not even the best way! Your church website is one of the best resources you have to connect with visitors at your church.

How to Choose the Right Stock Photos for Your Church Website

By: Samantha Decker
October 30th, 2018

  “A picture is worth a thousand words.” You’ve heard that old saying, right? Well, we think it’s especially true when it comes to your church website. Good photography speaks volumes on your website. It tells a story. It paints a picture of the people in your community, your church, and its different environments. It gives visitors a glimpse into what your church looks like. That’s why having good photography is essential for your church website! But the reality is, not every church has access to a professional quality photographer who can snap hundreds of pics to find the best 10-30. And not every church has the budget to hire one, either! So what do you do when you want good, quality photography for your website, but you don’t want to break the bank? The answer: stock photos!

Overcoming Fear: 7 Monsters Children Face

By: Samantha Decker
October 16th, 2018

Because we live in a broken world, our children face a battlefield every day.  And on this battlefield,  they face monsters of fear, anger, shame, apathy, greed, loneliness, and pride. However, we know that, “in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us” (Romans 8:37). We also know that these monsters gain strength and grow from a pack of lies that suggest we are unworthy or wrong-headed to think we can do anything about our state of affairs. God’s Word tells us something different, and as our children realize God’s teaching through the Word, they will understand more fully how to fight against these monsters. Is your child wrestling with one or more of these monsters? Set apart some time and read through this article with them. Together you’ll learn how to overcome fear and find victory as God’s Word exposes each monster as a lie.  As a bonus, you can download a free "7 Monsters" resource pack that includes a powerpoint, bookmark, and video bumper.
