Hello and welcome to our new Village website!
Over the past 6 months we have been working hard on creating a new web experience that was simpler and easier to use than our previous website. As you look around on the website, you will notice that it is much simpler to navigate than it used to be. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email us at [email protected].
Here are some of the new features:
The Village Event System
One of biggest additions to our new site is the new Village event system. In the past, events were difficult to navigate through. Now we have a full calendar and event system, so you can easily see what is coming up! If you click on the “Village Calendar and Events” item under our “Community Life” menu you will be taken to our event calendar. You can view events by the week, month or a list. You can even add the events to your google or ical calendars with the click of a button.
Dynamic Menu Bar
Our new menu system is much simpler to use. The idea is that you can get to any place on the new site with only one or two mouse clicks. As you navigate through any web page you will notice that the menu will stay at the top of your screen no matter where you are on the page, that way you can easily jump to any other page on the site just my moving your mouse to the menu bar.
The new sermon archive works a little bit differently than the old one did. When you click on the “Village Sermons” item under the “Community Life” menu you will see a list of the recent sermons, which you can listen too directly from the website. You can also download the sermon notes or life group questions if they are available. We have added social network share buttons, so if you really like a specific sermon and you want to share it on Twitter, Facebook or Google Plus, you can click the appropriate button next to each specific sermon.
You will notice that a lot of the older sermons are missing from the archive. In the process of switching to a new website we needed to start our sermon archive from scratch. The good news is that in the coming weeks, the old sermons will be added back to the archive and will be available for listening. If you would like to hear a specific sermon and you don’t see it in the archive, please email us at [email protected]
