Bridge Community Church is an Assemblies of God church in the greater Philadelphia area. Among other things, Mike Oldham oversees the media ministry at Bridge Community Church, which includes the church website - bridgecomchurch.org. Every Monday morning, Mike will spend a little time working on the church website. He devotes most of his attention to the home page as it's the "face of the website."
On the home page, Mike has set up a few different features that have proven very effective as communication and interaction tools. He's got a great looking slideshow with some upcoming announcements, a calendar list, the latest sermon available for listen or download, options for sharing the site, and a place to login to their Church Community Builder account.
