Praise the Lord, we are standing on new digital ground … welcome to the new Chapel by the Sea web site!
Many people made this happen but primarily it was Mike Casile who stood up the new web site and migrated most of the content from the old Chapel web site. Plus Grey Brinson, who managed the old Chapel web site, deserves a great deal of thanks for managing all the content on that site for many years and for helping us move forward to this new environment. Most of the “widgets” and graphic design for the new site were done by Roger Ricketts. The front page banner was designed in collaboration with Robert Kornegay. The Chapel has always been a Lighthouse of God’s word, shining brightly in this stormy world.
By using a “WordPress” powered web site we are able to use an interface that will allow many people to update the content of the site, thus keeping it informative and attractive to the Chapel family and to those who many find us on the Internet. Some of the new features are:
- A slide show gallery of photos on the front page which show life at the Chapel
- A list of scrolling important timely announcements and events
- A list of the latest Sermon notes
- A page for each Ministry program, plus a way for the person who heads up the ministry to update their page
- An easy to update Calendar to keep us aware of meetings and events
- A way for church leaders to share articles of interest and concern
- A way to “share” the sermons, articles and pages from this site to Facebook
- A way to translate the content of an article into many different language
- A way to easily post photos and videos of Chapel celebrations and events
