Christ the Rock Church approached Stellar Blue Technologies with the need for a website redesign. Their biggest challenge was determining how to help people truly feel the experience of being a member of the parishioner community while simultaneously highlighting the many services the Church as to offer.
In order to truly help people feel what it would be like to worship and be a part of the community at Christ the Rock Church, Stellar Blue made video a focal point of the website. The large hero video sequence that spans the first view of the home page captures the graceful and recently renovated facility, parishioners connecting and worshiping together and excerpts of Church services.
The home page itself is a robust source of information for both new and current Church members. This information is presented in such a visually appealing way that you can’t help but want to read more. One section of the home page highlights the Church’s Fireside Cafe with inter-page videos that not only catches your eye, but genuinely makes you feel like you want to grab a cup of coffee and connect with fellow followers.
The chunky yet clean navigation elements and headings that the Stellar Blue design team implemented make the site easy to navigate for people of all ages. The Church has so many services and features built into the site, but this simple and well thought out navigation makes it easy for users to quickly find what they are looking for.
Part of the initial but behind the scenes and critically important work on the site involved the Stellar Blue technical team coming up with a plan to integrate a number of existing online third-party functionalities the new site would utilize, such as prayer requests, a video archiving database, calendaring systems and ways to give charitable contributions. The team was successful in integrating these functionalities for a seamless and easy to use experience for parishioners.
The team also set up an easy to manage permissions system for Church staff to grant access to volunteers to add content to the site. The staff at Christ the Rock Church loved the streamlining of processes that enable them to share their message with more people in an efficient and effective way.
