Mecklenburg Community Church

Mecklenburg Community Church (Charlotte, NC) is one of the fastest growing and most dynamic churches in the country.  A church the size of Mecklenburg needs a powerful website to easily communicate everything they have to offer.  The church leaders want Mecklenburg to be a comfortable place for people to visit even if they haven't been to church in years.  The site provides a wealth of information on what people can expect when they attend for the first time and make information regarding service times and directions available on every page.  The home page of the site contains a wealth of information broken down into four categories.  The New to Meck tab includes intro videos, service times, directions, staff bios and highlights of what you can expect the first time you visit.  The Current Series tab highlights the message that is being discussed on the weekends including a video overview.  The Attenders and Members tab offers information about the many events, resources and ministries offered by the church.  The Internet Campus tab provides an overview of another Mecklenburg website which is a full blown church on the web.

This home page design is intended to offer highlights for the many things taking place at Meck.  On each page there is a button labelled "More of Meck" which allows visitors to goto a more traditionally looking website which offers more details on the ministries, resources and events that are taking place.  In addition to events appearing on the home page, they also show up on an upcoming events listing broken down by categories, as well as showing up on ministry specific pages.  They only have to add the event details once using our custom content management system called Latitude and the events automatically show up in the right places and disappear after the event has taken place.

We integrated the site with their member management system so that people can easily update their contact information or see details about the small group they're in.  The member's area was expanded to provide exclusive content to the church members including online audio and video versions of recent services and content made available to members during annual meetings.

In addition the  site is equipped with a search option to help people location information quickly and an online version of their bookstore making it easy to sell books, cds, and dvds.

If you're looking to unleash your website with some of these same great ideas, give us a call.
