Much of what you use when building a site with one of our themes is from WordPress itself. WordPress handles pages, menus, the blog, comments, etc. Our themes handle the looks and our Church Content plugin adds features like sermons and events. Our guides mostly relate to features we develop. Plenty of general WordPress information available online.
