Ever wished your church website could have an awesome slideshow? It can! Every page on your Church111 site can include a fully-customizable slideshow. Here's how to do it:
1. Select the page you want to edit in Church111
2. Scroll down to the "Addl. Content" expandable menu. Expand it!
3. The last thing it has is a checkbox that says "Turn on Slideshow". Check it!
4. Now you can see your slideshow settings. Tweak the options to change how it looks, and upload your images.
5. Save your page and you now have a slideshow!
You can also add a slideshow to your custom template! (Slideshows look great as the header) Just select the "Media" category of widgets, and drag the "Slideshow" out to where you want it on the custom template.
Questions about creating your slideshow? Contact us, we'd love to help you out.

Your church website is out there to help your visitors and members. Make sure that you have useful content that they are looking for.
A first-time visitor will need to know who you are and what you are about. An "About Us" or "About the Church" page is a great way to do this. Maybe have a page about your pastor(s). Or how about a page that talks about your ministries? Anything else special about your church that you would like to share? Add a page about it!
Your returning members, on the other hand, probably know most of this already! These members need to know what is going on at your church. When is service? Are there any Bible studies or groups this week, and when are they? Does the church have any interesting news?
Answer these questions with Church111 built-in features. Use the Site Calendar to post special events. Use the Church Events widget to show times for services and other weekly activities on the home page. Add a News Page to easily add, edit, or delete news items.
Be creative! Maybe add an Image Gallery or embed a Google Map so everyone can find you. The possibilities are endless!
