Grace Lutheran Church
Wednesday, April 21, 2010
Grace Lutheran Church has been a landmark of downtown Green Bay for over 100 years. On December 18, 1908, 19 men and women gathered in a small, drafty, weather-beaten, wooden church on the corner of Madison and Moravian Streets and with the assistance of Reverend Paul F. Hein, the Executive Officer for the Home Mission Board of the Joint Synod of Ohio and Other States, drafted a temporary constitution to create Grace Lutheran Church.
Today the church still stands where it had been founded, in 1915. Grace is involved with many outreach programs within the community and through the ELCA.
WHY WAS THIS WEBSITE NEEDED?
The primary purpose of the website is to introduce the church to new parishioners and communicate with its congregation. For visitors there are pages that give the extensive history of the church, service times, and directions. Parishioners and visitors alike can view the calendar of events, news and find volunteer information.
HOW WAS THE WEBSITE BUILT?
The site was built using XHTML standard compliant code and CSS for fast loading pages. The site also features our own custom content management system.� Grace staff have the ability to add pages, upload photos and documents, as well as update almost any page in their website without knowing any HTML or programming.
