We are very excited to announce that two of the most requested features are now available and ready for you to use. These features are a monthly events calendar and event categories. Let’s take a look at them.
We’ve released updated versions of our Exodus (1.3) and Resurrect (1.6) WordPress themes. These updates address minor issues and prepare the themes to take advantage of new features in the next version of the Church Theme Content plugin, which we plan to release this month along with the Custom Recurring Events add-on.
You can update by going to Dashboard > Updates in your WordPress admin area. You will need to have an active license key for the updates to show.
WordPress 4.1 was released today and all of our themes have been updated for compatibility.
The new version of WordPress adds several features including distraction-free writing, plugin recommendations and an easier way of choosing a non-English language. Some of the inner workings of the Customizer were improved as well. Our themes take full advantage of this feature and require an update to keep things working smoothly.
We recommend all users update to the latest version of Exodus or Resurrect and WordPress 4.1.
Note: Additional updates were made on October 9 to address a bug some users were experiencing with the Customizer. Read changelogs for details.
Both of our themes have been updated. It’s important to keep all themes, plugins and WordPress itself up to date to get the latest improvements, bug fixes and ensure compatibility with the latest versions of WordPress. Please take advantage of the one-click update feature to keep your website running smoothly.
There are many church WordPress themes available today. You might think the only difference is how they look. After all, that’s what WordPress themes are supposed to be for — giving your church website a certain appearance. But there is more to consider when choosing a church WordPress theme.
Here are some questions to get answers for when looking at any church WordPress theme. Some answers may be easy to find. Others may require asking the theme seller specific questions.
Our first two themes and the plugin they rely on for content have been updated. The changes are minor improvements and bug fixes. All users are recommended to run the latest version of themes, plugins and WordPress.

It’s flat, it’s wide and it’s now available. Give our newest church WordPress theme a look.
Exodus has the same church-focused features as our first theme but with a very different style. Our goal is to offer a wide variety of themes for churches so that there is something to suit every need. Resurrect is geared toward churches that want a sort of urban feel while Exodus is designed to have more of a modern, mainstream appeal.
Two things that stand out are its flat design and wide layout.
