Alpharetta First United Methodist Church is a vibrant and diverse family of faith located in downtown Alpharetta, Georgia. With more than a thousand congregants, it is critical for information to be easily accessible to members as well as first-time visitors. YDO is proud to have helped Alpharetta First United Methodist Church migrate their website to an environment that is easier for their congregation to access the information that is most important to their family.
We helped streamline and organize the content on the site, leveraged quick Action Calls to help visitors find their way to helpful information for first-timers, and automated the feed from their internal events database to the Events Calendar on their website. Gone are the days of double-entry for their administrative team!
We integrated the Events calendars with an external calendar management system via API to pull hundreds of calendar events per week, as well as tracking room reservations, categorized by target audience and type of event.
We also made Content Management very easy for the staff by building the website on WordPress, the most widely used Content Management System on the market today. When logged in, the church staff are able to navigate the website, point and click, and easily edit text, images or media on their site.
We’re grateful to have been a part of AFUMC’s website transition.
