Who is Central Community United Methodist Church?

Central Community United United Methodist Church in Shell Knob, MO is a small-town church with a lot going on. They have a food pantry that helps to feed those in need. They have a daycare to service families in their community. They also have a thrift store to help families in need. The church has a close family feel and they wanted a website that shows visitors that they and their families are welcome.

What were the issues that were keeping their website from achieving their goals of reaching young families?

  • The front page had too many photos and not enough information.
  • The front page needed to be more for visitors and less for the members.
  • The front page wasn’t very well organized.
