The New HoustonsFirst.org

Jan 26, 2013 / Stephen Shaw

Welcome to the new HoustonsFirst.org! We've done a lot of work both in the foreground and background of the website to make your experience here even better.


Navigation

Many pages have moved around to be easier to find but may not be exactly where they used to be. Here are a few important changes to our navigation:

Start Here

General church info, including Times & Locations & Meet Our Team, is located under the Start Here section. This is a perfect place to send guests to learn more about our church as a whole!

Connect

Life Bible Studies, Milestones, Missions and Volunteers are grouped under Connect, a great spot for visitors & members to find connecting points within the church and midweek activities.

Life Stages

Age/group based ministries are all located under Life Stages such as Kids, Young Single Adults, Men & Women.

Find Help

All support based ministries like The Counseling Centerg, First HOPE Job Ministry, and Faith Center are under Find Help with names that match the purpose of the ministry (IE: CanHope, our support ministry for those impacted by cancer, is under "Cancer Support")

Media

Video & audio messages and various resources are under Media like before, along with Corner Books & Staff/Volunteer Resources.

Special Interests

All other public services & ministries like FItness & Recreation, School of Fine Arts, and Culinary Services are located at the very top under Special Interests.

Explore the dropdown navigation at the top to aquaint yourself with the new organization and find new pages!


Features
