About the project

St. John's United Church of Christ in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, stood as a beacon of faith and community. However, its digital presence was in stark contrast to its vibrant congregation. The church's website, an outdated WordPress site, was struggling to reflect the church's dynamic mission, values, and community engagement.

The Challenge

The existing website was cumbersome, unresponsive, and visually outdated. Navigating through the site was an arduous process, hindering users from accessing vital information and connecting with the church's offerings. The challenge was not merely to modernize the website but to infuse it with the spirit and essence of St. John's UCC, making it a digital extension of the church itself.

The Solution

The redesign process started with in-depth analysis and planning. By understanding the unique needs and values of St. John's UCC, the design was tailored to resonate with its congregation and the wider community. The new website:

  • Modernized Design: Fresh, clean, and visually appealing, the design incorporated the church's colors and themes.
  • User-Friendly Navigation: A streamlined menu and intuitive layout ensured that users could quickly find what they were looking for.
  • Responsive Design: The site was made accessible on various devices, ensuring a seamless experience whether on desktop, tablet, or mobile.
  • Content Revitalization: From concise mission statements to engaging descriptions of fellowships and committees, the content was reimagined to connect with readers.
  • Community Integration: New features like an event calendar and online giving options were implemented to enhance community interaction and participation.

The Result

The newly redesigned website is a testament to the spirit and mission of St. John's United Church of Christ. It's not just a site but a digital home for a community united in faith. The transformation from an outdated WordPress site to a modern, responsive, and engaging platform has empowered the church to reach out to its congregation and the broader community in ways that were not previously possible.

This project was not just about aesthetic improvement; it was about breathing life into a digital space, mirroring the vibrant community of St. John's UCC.
