As always, feel free to wear your Sunday best, or your Saturday comfortable jeans. If you know our pastor, you know most of the time he’s in jeans and when it’s warm, on his Harley. No matter your style or preference, you are welcome at First Simple Church where we always preach and teach scriptural truth and never compromise God’s Word.
First Simple Church is affiliated with The Wesleyan Church, an evangelical, Protestant denomination. The Wesleyan Church offers the good news that faith in Jesus Christ makes possible a wonderful personal relationship with God, a holy life empowered by His Holy Spirit for witness and service, and assurance of eternal life in heaven. The ministries emphasize practical Bible teaching, uplifting worship, and special programs to meet a variety of life needs. http://www.wesleyan.org/beliefs

A “What to Expect” page can be very helpful because it is an opportunity to make newcomers comfortable enough to make their first visit. Link to it from your homepage or a prominent menu position. Here are some details to include.
- What are your services like?
- How long are they?
- What is your style of worship?
- What is typical attire?
- Is child care available? (don’t overlook the importance of this)
You may want to insert a photo tour or produce a short welcome video (click for tips). See the example below from Josh Byers. Let your pastor say a word and/or give a quick Sunday morning tour. It’s not absolutely necessary to have a video (a page with words and a photo or two is good) but it can give the website visitor a very real idea of what they’ll be stepping into.
An alternative is to include these details on your services or location page. Read Content Your Church Website Must Have on the churchthemes.com blog for more tips.
