Easter is right around the corner. What have you planned at your church?
Here’s something cool we’re doing online at The Chapel to support Easter services.
We’ve created this site to support everything Easter at The Chapel. The design is derived from the look of our Easter branding.
Since we have five campuses, I thought it was very important to place all times and locations, with directions, across the top. This is what most folks want to know, and I don’t want to make them hunt for it.
Not only are we talking about doubt this Easter, we also wanted to provide a place folks can share and read other people’s doubts — ultimately generating excitement and interest around Easter. We ask the question, “What does your doubt look like?”
Instead of re-inventing the wheel, we asked Eric Murrell to re-purpose the code from his confession series website for our Easter site. He did a great job, and we’re all big fans of jQuery Cycle.
People are really using it, too. It’s very compelling.
We created a signup form through our account at Formspring for Easter service volunteer opportunities.
We want folks to get the word out about Easter at The Chapel, of course, so we set up three tools to help people get the word out to their friends and family about ChapelEaster.org and eventually Easter services.
