Maranatha: Beautifully Innovative New Theme

Maranatha Church WordPress Theme

Maranatha has come.

After many months of design, development and testing, our newest WordPress theme for churches is available. We celebrated our two year anniversary last month and have learned much from working with thousands of churches since launching. Maranatha is the result of what we’ve learned churches and church website visitors really need.

Maranatha has all the same core features as our other WordPress themes such as sermons, events, people and locations. Let me explain the innovations that make Maranatha different and better.

Major Theme Updates Released

All of our themes have received a major update. It is important to update to the newest version before WordPress 4.4 is released in order to avoid the possibility of seeing an error. This is not only a compatibility update, though. There have been improvements made to sermon media downloading, a new email field for locations, translation improvements, performance optimizations and more. Read on to find out what’s new.

Introducing the Translation Incentive Program

Translation Incentive Program

As you may know, our themes are translation-ready. This means they can be translated into languages other than English. We’ve had several generous users share their translations for the benefit of other churches who speak their language. There are many, many languages spoken in this world so we can’t include too many translations with our themes. That’s why we’ve introduced the Translation Incentive Program to encourage more contributions.

Sneak Peek of Our Next Church Theme

We’ve been hard at work on our next church theme and are close enough to finishing it to give you a taste. Here are a few screenshots to give you a feel for its design. Notable features are a long homepage with a custom background for each section and a “sticky” menu that stays in view as the visitor scrolls. Circular buttons give this theme its special character.
