Have you ever wondered, “Does my church really need a website?”
Maybe you already have a Facebook page, and you feel like that’s enough. Or maybe your church is small, and no one wants to take on the extra responsibility of building and maintaining a website.
James Hammack, digital services manager for TAB Media Group, said you might want to look at it through the eyes of someone who is considering visiting your church and think of your website as part of your outreach.
“In almost all contexts the church website is the front door to the church in today’s digital age,” Hammack said. “In many ways, to have no web presence can communicate a message to potential visitors that you don’t want them. The church website is the first step to inviting people into your church.”
An easy way to open that front door is through Hosted Church, a new service offered by TAB Media.
Hosted Church offers a variety of website options and personalized design, but if you’re looking for something simple, an Essentials website might be just right. The Essentials template offers a well-designed basic “landing page” that tells people who you are and the information they need to know to visit your church.
A low annual cost covers the purchase of a domain name; the landing page with personalized information, colors and images; and updates to that information as it changes during the year.
To view a sample template for the Essentials page, visit essentials.hostedchurch.com.
