Making Our Website New!

A significant priority at the church over the past several months was refreshing the website, and I hope you have taken a look at it. The redesigned website aims to make available a huge amount of information to our members and the public at large in an easily accessible and organized way, using pictures and colors to convey AHCC’s warm and welcoming atmosphere.

What are your first impressions?

My eye is drawn to the clean lines and uncluttered page layouts, the new AHCC logo, and features such as member stories. I have navigated around the new website to see what is there and familiarize myself with where I can find the information I need.

For example, I go to the website on Sunday mornings when I attend the worship service remotely, and now the “Livestream” button at the top of every page is easy to find. I also like to use the website calendar to see what programs and events are coming up, and the calendar, too, is readily accessible through the “Calendar” link at the top of every page. Also, each page has a link to “Log In,” which I use to reach the secure area of the website when I want to look at the member directory or check my giving history. (And, yes, I can attest to the fact it is easy to reset your password for the secure part of the website if you forget it!)

I really love how the new website includes some jolts of personality. Who noticed the picture of our three ministers’ shoes? Or how about the gorgeous close-up photo of our sanctuary organ? And the numerous member stories reflect the beautiful variety in our members’ backgrounds, faith journeys, and paths to AHCC.

Finally, I want to thank the entire staff for their hard work and dedication to creating the redesigned website, and special thanks to Director of Communications Rhonda Mitchell, who spearheaded the project, and to Director of Operations Helena Carvalho, who led the data integration aspect of the project.
