With pink and red and hearts everywhere you turn, Valentine’s Day must be on the horizon. Love is in the air and many are watching TV to catch up on all the sappy stories.

Church website design trends are ever-changing, just like any trend. Other than it is difficult to keep up with, it’s a good thing. I mean, who wants the same designs year after year?

The most wonderful time of year is right around the corner! It seems we blink and it’s Christmas again. Which is exciting and inspiring but can be a little overwhelming at the same time, especially if you’re a pastor who is trying to come up with another idea for your Christmas sermon.

Then, glance through the sermon ideas below for even more inspiration.
Generosity is a product of our desire to love and be kind to others, especially those in need.

Cooler weather means the holidays are just on the horizon. That also means it’s time to start planning all the fun Christmas festivities your church will be doing.

Hosting harvest festivals at your church can be a fun and strategic way to provide a safe place for kids of all ages to come and have fun.

As the weather turns colder and the leaves change color, the holiday season is fast approaching. Your church teams may be brainstorming fall festivals, Thanksgiving sermons, and gearing up for Christmas.
Church events are a powerful way to bring in new visitors and help current members to engage in community. They connect people and further the message of the gospel in methods outside of Sunday service. Many people want to dig deeper into community but they’re not sure how. Hosting events at your church can provide this unity and togetherness.
