About St. John’s Lutheran Church
St. John’s Lutheran Church is a Christian church in Lombard, Illinois. The church offers traditional Lutheran church services on Sunday mornings and contemporary services on Saturday evenings and late Sunday mornings. Lombard is a fairly affluent community located in the Chicago metro area and contains a strong mix of older and younger residents.
About the Website
Organization and ease-of-use were top priorities for the new church website. St. John’s needed a site that would be able to provide valuable information to parishioners without being too complicated to navigate. They add recordings of their services to their website so it was important for them to easily be able to add content without assistance. In regard to design, a clean, bright look was needed, but with a design that still felt respectable and appropriate for the church.
The goal of the refresh was to provide an easy-to-use WordPress website that had streamlined navigation and a light, clean look. They wanted to be able to change and update the site often and without website developers or advanced skills needed.
As part of the St. John’s website redesign, a completely new and customized WordPress website was created. Gone is the heavy black background and double-layer of menus that made navigation confusing. These have been replaced with a lighter, cleaner look and menu setup. The number of main menu items was reduced, helping with mobile navigation and enhancing the ability of users to navigate the information.
Plugins were added for additional ease-of-use features as well as SEO optimization. Security protocol was added to prevent malicious activity and mobile-responsive design helps improve organic Google site ranking. The WordPress framework and customized user dashboard make it easy for anyone managing the church’s website to make additions or changes with only basic tech skills.
At Neur, we make it easy to transition from your current website to your new one. As part of the St. John’s Luther Church website redesign, we assisted with the migration process making it a painless and stress-free process to get the new site up and running.
