Your Online Front Door

Justin Czech   -  

During the last few years, we’ve been encouraging people to think of the “new front door” of the church as being its website. After all, that’s where most people go “visit” your church before they ever step foot inside. Just like a church wants its physical appearance to look great and inviting, a 21st century church understands its web presence needs to be inviting, up-to-date, and engaging.

I often hear objections from churches on affording the cost for websites, or having something that is “easy” to use – and requires minimal babysitting.

Today I’d like to introduce you to Carrd. Carrd is a website hosting company that is centered around providing a simple, single, responsive landing page for your church. This will allow you to share information like service times, provide information on what visitors may expect, and link the website back to Google My Business  so anyone searching “churches near me” can actually find your church! Now you won’t have many of the feature rich items that other hosting provides may offer, but, at a whopping $20/yr., it’s well worth the investment.

If you don’t already have a domain, you can purchase one from Cloudflare.

So in less time than it takes you to complete your upcoming sermon outline, you can create, and launch your church website!
