Zion WordPress Theme for Churches

Zion is our latest WordPress theme designed specifically for churches and non-profit organizations. It features key functionality needed by modern church websites, and it uses an adaptive layout to provide visitors with a positive experience on desktops, tablets, and smartphones.

Theme features include:

  • 4 different color schemes
  • Adaptive layout
  • Homepage slider
  • Upload your own logo (optional)
  • Upcoming events list
  • Media section for sermon audio and video
  • Widget-ready

Zion WordPress Theme for Churches

Zion is a great option for churches and ministries that need an attractive, effective website on a tight budget. The customizeable homepage slider allows you to highlight whatever events, ministries, and programs that you want visitors to know about. Change the slides at any time with no need to edit code. The homepage also uses WordPress widget functionality to give you some freedom over the content that you want to be displayed on the homepage (explained in the theme documentation).

All church websites need the ability to highlight upcoming events, and Zion includes an event list that displays the events chronologically, with the first one shown being the event that is coming up next. As the date and time of the event passes it will automatically be removed, reducing the time and effort that you will need to keep your website fresh and up-to-date.

Most churches also post sermon/message audio and/or video to their website. With Zion you can easily add your media files, and the media player even works on the iPhone and iPad.

Add your church’s address in the WordPress dashboard and Zion automatically adds a button to the site header allowing visitors the option to get a map or directions from Google Maps. This is especially a good feature for mobile users as people will often go to your website if they are having trouble finding your location.

The theme also includes a staff page template where you can add photos and brief bios of your pastors and staff members.


Zion comes in 4 color schemes. All you have to do is choose the scheme you want to use from the theme dashboard. You can change color schemes at any time.

Documentation for the theme is available here.

    Great theme and the Zion is free.. which is amazing. The upcoming events could have gave me problems.. but no more!

    Thanks for sharing i’ll use that for sure.

  • ahmet sefa, September 24, 2012

    thanks for sharing.i will use this nice theme

  • Daisy Bono, November 15, 2012

    Very nice post! Websites are not only for businesses but for other institutions as well. It is nice to have a website for the church as well.

  • Tom O'Brien, November 16, 2012

    Excellent theme! Very helpful, thank you!

    One problem I’ve run into: When I click on the link for an event, I’m getting a 404 error. I can’t figure out what I’ve done wrong.

    Thanks again.

    • Steven Snell, November 16, 2012

      Hi Tom,
      It’s probably related to the permalink settings. Did you see the General WordPress Settings section of the documentation? We recommend using the “post name” permalink setting. If you change that it should take care of the issue.

  • Tom O'Brien, November 16, 2012

    Excellent. Thank you!

  • Tran Le, November 28, 2012

    hi! I love how simple yet versatile this theme is. I’d like to know how you can add bookmarks to the theme without ever having to touch/use the theme editor. I do not know much about css/html and I’m afraid to change anything because I might not be able to reverse it if it gets screwed! please help me put in bookmarks! thank you in advance! :)

    • Steven Snell, November 28, 2012

      Hi Tran,
      I’m sorry but I don’t understand what you mean by adding bookmarks to the theme.

  • Tom, December 9, 2012

    It appears that an upcoming event stopped viewing on the day of the event instead of after the event has passed. Is there a way that I can change that so that the event remains listed until after it has ended? Thanks!

    • Steven Snell, December 10, 2012

      Hi Tom,
      It should end at the specific time the event is scheduled. Did you set the timezone to the proper setting (It is in the Settings link in the WordPress dashboard)? If your timezone setting is off it will impact when the events are removed. This is covered in the General WordPress Settings section of the documentation if you need some instructions for changing the time zone.

  • Tom, December 10, 2012

    The time zone setting seems to be set correctly. Hmm, I’ll have to keep an eye on the next event. Thanks!

    • Steven Snell, December 10, 2012

      Tom,
      I’ll double check, but I think the event should stay listed until the specific time. It’s possible that it is coded to disappear the day of the event, but I know our older church themes left the event listed until the time of the event.

  • Jim, December 15, 2012

    First, thank you for a quality and easy to use template. It is wonderful and a real time-saver.

    Next, I need to ask a brief question. The home page slideshow is extremely useful, however I have a problem with it, but only in Internet Explorer. I put a couple of quick slides together and tested the site in Chrome. They worked as they should with the hyperlink for the image going to the correct page. However, in Internet Explorer versions 8 and 9 (not sure about 10 yet) the slideshow works as it should, but there is no hyperlink associated with the image. Actually the code shows the hyperlink there, but IE refuses to honor it and allow the click on the image to go to the correct page.

    I have tried multiple computers and the issue is the same on all of them with the homepage slider links working in Chrome (and Firefox too) and not in IE. I thought it could be a security setting in IE, but that does not appear to be the case. Give how IE behaves, it is likely something else.

    Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated. I have come up with a standard home page to use in the event I am not able to resolve the home page slider issue (which is very easy to do given the different templates, thank you).

    Regardless of this issue, the Zion WordPress template is great.

  • Andrea, December 17, 2012

    Awesome WordPress theme! I really like it.
    I just have one question : How to translate it to my language (italian)?
    If I understand correctly, I must edit every single file and change the date format, because in Italy we use DD / MM / YYYY. Right?

    Thanks

    • Steven Snell, December 17, 2012

      Hi Andrea,
      Unfortunately the theme is not ready for translation to another language. Yes, you would probably need edit the dates in the theme files.

  • justin, December 17, 2012

    When I add the logo, my site title goes away. Any suggestions?

    • Steven Snell, December 17, 2012

      Justin,
      Yes, that is how it is supposed to work. If you don’t have a logo uploaded it will display the site title in text, but most logos include the church/site name so it would be redundant to show both. If the logo you uploaded does not include your church/site name you can create a new graphic that includes both the logo and the text.

  • Steven Snell, December 17, 2012

    Hi Jim,
    This issue hadn’t been identified in our theme testing, but I can verify that the link is also not working in IE for me. I’m checking with the developer now to see if we can get that fixed.

  • Jim, December 17, 2012

    Thanks Steve. I did a new install of the theme on a completely different website and host and I was able to replicate the the same behavior.

    Thanks again for checking into the issue.

    • Steven Snell, December 18, 2012

      Hi Jim,
      There is some CSS code that needs to be added to the themes style.css file. This code was just added to our demo and test installation and it is working now in IE. I’ll update the theme download so future users won’t have this issue. If you need help adding this code let me know (you can email your URL, WP username and password to info@vandelaydesign.com and I’ll take care of it). This is the code to add to the style.css file:

      .nivoSlider a.nivo-imageLink {
      position:absolute;
      top:0px;
      left:0px;
      width:100%;
      height:100%;
      border:0;
      padding:0;
      margin:0;
      z-index:6;
      display:none;
      background:white;
      filter: alpha(opacity=0);
      opacity: 0;
      }

  • Jim, December 18, 2012

    Steve,

    Thank you for the quick response and the fix.

    I will add the above code to the style.css file today.

  • Mr. Anh, December 22, 2012

    Love this! Simple WordPress theme

  • Kelsey Coleman, December 22, 2012

    I’m new to wodpress and have a account with bluehost. I downloaded this template and compressed it so I could upload it to bluehost. When I activate the template does not look like it does here. What am i doing wrong?

    • Steven Snell, December 24, 2012

      Hi Kelsey,
      The theme documentation (link above the download link in this post) will lead you through the process of setting up the site. If you’re new to WordPress you’ll also want to see the section on General WordPress Settings (linked from the documentation page). If you have questions about any specific part of the setup process let me know.

  • Justin Grice, December 22, 2012

    Great theme! I am having a little problem with images not aligning right. Any idea?

    • Steven Snell, December 24, 2012

      Hi Justin,
      I would have to see it to get a better idea of what is happening and try to identify the problem. Can you send a link? If you prefer, you can email it to me at info@vandelaydesign.com.

  • Tom, December 22, 2012

    It’s seems as if the events disappear the day of the event. For instance, I have an event scheduled for 7:30pm tonight but it’s already off the calendar (it’s 1:00pm – first time I’ve checked today.) Hmm…

    • Steven Snell, December 24, 2012

      Hi Tom,
      We may be able to change that in the next version of the theme.

  • Justin Grice, December 28, 2012

    Sure, could you take a look at the image alignment (should be aligned to the right of the text content) at http://fccofjasper.org/services/

    Thanks!

    • Steven Snell, December 31, 2012

      Hi Justin,
      I just sent you an email with a fix.

  • Andrea, January 2, 2013

    Hi Steven,
    I’m translating the theme, but I have difficulty with the names of the months.
    Abbreviated (three letters) and complete.
    I would like it to appear in Italian.
    is there a solution?

    thank you

    • Steven Snell, January 3, 2013

      Hi Andrea,
      The theme is not translation-ready. Sorry.

  • Andrea, January 3, 2013

    However I found a solution using switch (). Thanks anyway

  • Jake, January 10, 2013

    First off, thank you for providing such a great theme. This is my first WordPress theme and I wanted to know if there was a way to manually change the theme colors in CSS. The 4 choices provided (Blue, Green, Orange and Red) do not mesh well with the logo.

    • Steven Snell, January 11, 2013

      Hi Jake,
      Yes, once you download the theme you will have the theme files and you can edit the CSS.

  • Giuseppe, January 22, 2013

    hi !!! i’m italian!
    thanks for the free theme!

    how i can change the top (i would like insert an image with logo of my church)

    thanks a lot!!

    ps. and than… how i can enable te “map and direction” ?

  • Steven Snell, January 28, 2013

    Hi Giuseppe,
    Please refer to the theme documentation (linked above). It covers the process of adding your logo and setting up the map and directions.

  • Shakeema, January 29, 2013

    Hello!!! I am very much interested in using your theme for my church website. Will I be able to upload plugins such as paypal donation, calendar, and wiziapp? Will I be able to use this theme to audio? For example, when a person enters my church website i would like for them to hear music, it this possible? Please advise.

    Thank you in advance!!

    • Steven Snell, January 29, 2013

      Hi Shakeema,
      You can use any plugins that you like with the theme. The theme was not designed or developed to depend on any specific plugins and sometimes there are compatibility issues between themes and plugins, so I can’t guarantee which ones will work. The theme has it’s own event calendar system. It does not have any functionality for audio that would play automatically when the site opens, so you would have to customize it or use a plugin for that.

  • Shakeema, January 29, 2013

    Thank you so much for your quick response!! I will try it and keep you posted.

  • Shakeema, January 30, 2013

    I was under the impression that one of the color scheme options was red. Is there any way I can have red instead of the other colors? Please advise. my church website is http://gsuhc.org

    Thank you in advance.

    • Steven Snell, January 30, 2013

      Shakeema,
      Select the “default” color scheme to get the one that is shown in the preview images and on the demo.

  • Shakeema, January 31, 2013

    thank you!!

  • Reeder, January 31, 2013

    Is there a way to add a background and have the content boxed in?

    • Steven Snell, February 1, 2013

      Hi Reeder,
      You would have to customize the theme to do that.

  • MergeLane, February 2, 2013

    I am testing this site for one of our church partners and am having a horrible time trying to get the video setup properly. We use our own CDN service with Internap and use an rtmp URL code – the service doesn’t seem to want to recognize it so I am trying to figure out how to make it work using short code with the youtube link page.

    • Steven Snell, February 4, 2013

      MergeLane,
      The video functionality is intended to be used by just a YouTube or Vimeo link since that is the most common way.

  • Jeremy, February 8, 2013

    It’s an awesome wordpress theme. I love it.

    At first I did struggle, I wasn’t sure how to customize it, but I got it now.

    • Steven Snell, February 8, 2013

      Hi Jeremy,
      There is documentation provided that goes through the process of setting it up. Thanks for your compliments.

  • Kevin, February 12, 2013

    Thank you for providing such a quality church theme for churches at no cost. I know this will be a blessing to many.

    First, in the next version would it be possible to add a couple of the primary social media buttons to the header to share, like, or tweet?

    One issue I have come accross is when viewed from IE 8 the theme is resizing to mobile or tablet version In Firefox and Chrome it displays the desktop version of the site correctly. Am not sure why it is not displaying desktop version on IE. I even reset IE to default settings.

    If you would like to take alook our site is at http://libertymbc.net

    Again, thanks for this great theme!

    • Steven Snell, February 13, 2013

      Hi Kevin,
      I don’t have IE8 installed but in testing it through Adobe BrowserLab it is showing up ok for me in IE8.

  • ino, February 14, 2013

    1. im not do not see the pages that are assigned by the attributes on the home page
    2. i do not have the event section on my dashboard. this is the link of the website http://locowebdesigns.com/priel/

    please help me thank you very much in advance

    • Steven Snell, February 14, 2013

      Ino,
      I’m not sure what you mean by “do not see the pages that are assigned by the attributes on the home page”. If you send your WordPress username and password to info@vandelaydesign.com I will login and take a look at the events issue.

  • Song Ngư, February 17, 2013

    Very beautiful! But also the color theme? Red is very nice, but I want to be green, for example.

    • Steven Snell, February 17, 2013

      Song,
      A green color scheme is included.

  • Shakeema, February 27, 2013

    Hi Steven! Hope all is well. I want to first start by saying I have been using the zion theme and I love it!

    My church have some events coming up and I am looking to post them to the website. I went to the “event” tab on the left hand side of my dash board and put in an upcoming event for 3/1/13. I have the “upcoming events” as the first tab in “home page widgets” and it is not showing up on my home page. Can you please help me? Thank you in advance.

  • Shakeema, February 27, 2013

    Hi Steve! Just wanted to let you know that the Upcoming Events did appear at the bottom of the home page. What did not appear was the date next to it and the event title was not highlighted in red allowing guest to click on it and see the description of the event. Please advise.

  • kabeer khan, February 27, 2013

    I Love this! Simple and awesome WordPress theme

  • Steven Snell, February 28, 2013

    Shakeema,
    Can you send me an email to info@vandelaydesign.com with the URL of the site, the WordPress username, and the WordPress password? I will look into the issue.

  • Bill Melloh, March 11, 2013

    Do you have a fix yet for the upcoming events widget that drops off the event on the day of the event and not after the event. OK on the events page, just not on the widget. Thanks and good job on Zion!

    • Steven Snell, March 11, 2013

      Hi Bill,
      No. If we do a theme update this will probably be included, but for now there is nothing available.

  • Kelly, March 28, 2013

    This is an amazing template. Thanks so much for providing it for free – it’s exactly what I was looking for to use for a non-profit I’m helping out.

  • Dave, April 10, 2013

    Is there any way to switch the homepage slider on Zion with the one we like better from Stylish Church?

    Thanks for a great theme!
    David

    • Steven Snell, April 11, 2013

      Dave,
      You would have to customize the theme’s code in order to do that.

  • Dave, April 11, 2013

    Hey Steve,
    Thanks.. I’m actually not to bad at changing/editing the code.. would you be willing to point me in the right direction. could you tell me the page to look at and the names of the sliders to search for.

    I totally tweeked out my personal blog at CollidePhoto.com so I’m not afraid to make a site backup and give it a go :-)

    Thanks
    David

  • Dave, April 11, 2013

    Hey Steve.. me again.. I figured it out, no need to respond

  • Irene Philips, April 17, 2013

    Steve, On the homepage slider, am I limited to 3 slides? I have 4 but only 3 display. If yes, is there a way to change this?
    Irene

    • Steven Snell, April 18, 2013

      Irene,
      No, you are not limited to 3 slides. Are you sure the 4th one is published and not just saved as a draft?

  • Ethan Rogati, April 21, 2013

    I’m currently working on a Staff page. Is there any way to customize the order in which the people appear? I want our pastor to be first on the page, assistant pastor second, etc. However, I’m finding it difficult to change this. Thanks.

    • Steven Snell, April 22, 2013

      Hi Ethan,
      The staff profiles are displayed in the order in which they are published (just like WordPress posts with the most recent on top). The easiest way to change the order is to edit the date/time of publication after it has been published. So, for example if you have 2 staff profiles, a head pastor and an assistant pastor, and you want head pastor to be listed first, change the date of publication on the assistant pastor’s profile to some date or time in the past.

  • Ronnie Williams, May 2, 2013

    On the Staff page, is there a way to change the “Our Staff” text to something else?

    • Steven Snell, May 3, 2013

      Ronnie,
      You would need to change the text in the php file for the page template.

  • Ronnie Williams, May 3, 2013

    Where is the php file for teh page template located?

  • Ronnie Williams, May 3, 2013

    Never mind. I found it.

  • jena, May 6, 2013

    Hi

    I created a child theme for this theme and when I activated the child theme the browser goes blank.

    How to make child theme work with this theme?

    Also is there any demo content available with theme to import.

    Thanks

    • Steven Snell, May 6, 2013

      Hi jena,
      The theme is not coded to support child themes. No, there is no demo content available. Sorry.

  • matthew, May 10, 2013

    Hi Steven,

    Having an issue editing contents of widgets. When I edit any text or the title of the widget and save it, the change shows in wordpress, but when i look at the live site no change happened.If I refresh the widget page in wordpress, it’s as if I never edited the widget. Please help!!

    Thanks,

  • Colin Todd, May 11, 2013

    Hi

    Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for this theme – we’re using it for our new church website – it’s great!

    Just wondering if there’s some way I can set the order of the slides on the homepage slider? Any ideas please?

    Thanks again :)

    • Steven Snell, May 11, 2013

      Hi Colin,
      You can adjust the date/time of publication of the slides to control the order.

  • Colin Todd, May 12, 2013

    Hi Steve

    That’s excellent – many thanks!

  • Steven Snell, May 13, 2013

    Matthew,
    If you email your WordPress username and password to info@vandelaydesign.com I will login and take a look at it for you.

  • Jason, May 14, 2013

    It was great to find a free theme that provided exactly what was needed. Thank you for your work and offering it to everyone for free.

    Are you aware of any issues with audio files not loading under certain browsers, specifically IE? Our audio seems to play fine on mobile devices, Safari, or Chrome.

    Again, thank you.

    • Steven Snell, May 14, 2013

      Hi Jason,
      I’m not aware of any audio issues. The demo is working fine for me in IE. What version of IE are you using?

  • Mark Waldron, May 16, 2013

    Hi, Thanks for the Theme.
    The download seems to be missing search-form.php. I get an error when I try to add the ‘church – Search’ widget to a sidebar:

    include(C:HostingSpacescortexitstage01.cortexit.co.ukwwwroot/wp-content/themes/zion/search-form.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:HostingSpacescortexitstage01.cortexit.co.ukwwwrootwp-contentthemeszionincludestheme-widgets.php on line 230

  • Chris Sherlock, May 19, 2013

    Sorry if this has been covered and I didn’t see it, but I didn’t have a lot of time to scroll through the messages. I downloaded and unzipped the zion.zip file and unzipped it. The theme installation page in WordPress, if I’m understanding correctly, appears to be asking for a specific file within the archive and I’m not sure which one to use. Any advice? Thanks!

    • Steven Snell, May 20, 2013

      Chris,
      If you’re uploading it through the WP dashboard you need to upload the zip file.

  • Steven Snell, May 20, 2013

    Hi Mark,
    Use the widget titled “Search”. That is the one we are using on the demo site. If you release an updated version of the theme I will have the other widget removed.

  • Mabel, May 24, 2013

    I am using the Zion theme for my church website. I am unable to set up the slider on the homepage. I have done everything the theme documentation says. Please, help needed. Thanks

    • Steven Snell, May 24, 2013

      Mabel,
      What is your website URL? Most people who are having problems with the slider did not do one of the following:

      – Set the homepage to use the “home” template
      – Set the homepage to be used as a static front page

      If you did both of those things and you are still having problems you can email your URL, WP username and password to info@vandelaydesign.com and I will login and take a look.

  • Mabel, May 27, 2013

    @Steven: Thanks for the prompt response. It’s working now.

  • alexofob, May 29, 2013

    Thanks for making our work quite easy.

    I am unable to see the search widget and the sermons widget even when I place them in the sidebar widgets.

    How can I resolve this.

    BR
    Alexofob

    • Steven Snell, May 30, 2013

      Alex,
      I am seeing the search widget in your sidebar.

  • KMKurd, May 30, 2013

    Hi Steven

    I have one question, I am trying to insert Audio to the Stylish church theme but I dont have same option as shown on the documentation on my WordPress and I have limit of “Maximum upload file size: 2MB.” is there away to fix this?

    Thanks in advance

    • Steven Snell, May 30, 2013

      KMKurd,
      For the file size limit contact your host and ask them how to increase it. Sometimes on shared servers it cannot be increased and you would need to host the file somewhere else, or upload it by FTP. For the settings question, I don’t know specifically which options you are not seeing.

  • Pastor Eddie, June 3, 2013

    I’m using the Zion theme for our website and absolutely love it. Plus the documentation, the step by step instructions to get up and running is unparalleled for a free theme. Thanks so much for providing this service for us novices!

  • jeffery morse, June 4, 2013

    the site is not active yet, so if you goto the address you will get the old one. I’ve been attempting to add a flash banner to this theme. Of coarse non of the plugging for banners work, so i started editing a little, the style, and header. for some reason i just cant get the flash container to show up. could you provide me with some hints on what to do to add a flash banner to this theme, thanks… we just want to put something that is flash that shows the name of the church and worship with us.. any thing will help.

    First off thank you for your incredibly nifty theme. I’m going to be transitioning my church’s site from Wix/Flash to WP and overall I’m incredibly satisfied with the theme.

    My only issue is the Staff page which while effective and elegantly simple. Isn’t very customizable. Specifically while I can accept the format and lack of highlighting. I’m frustrated that there’s no way to simply order the staff. Something simple as putting Bishop on top then Deacons and then Elders below them. The menu system you have for header and footer is very effective is there way way that could be leveraged for the Staff Page?

    Hi–I am grateful for this nice, clean template. I have a question regarding events that span more than one day: is this feature able to span more than one day, or do I have to set up each day for a multi-day event?

  • Michael, June 24, 2013

    Hi–I am also noticing that when I try to add a new slide and set the featured item, it doesn’t give me the option for it’s size. I larger image that the slider window is not resizing properly. I have tried using the WP media edit feature to resize the image, but even that doesn’t seem to be working. Any suggestions? My other images in the slider are larger than the 950×460 ratio and are being resized properly.

    The events will not show up on the events page, or the widget. They are there, i can go straight to them, but they wont show up.

    I have recently installed the Zion theme, but am not able to see the slider images on the home page. What i see is the blog posts. I have gone to Settings-Reading and tried to change the Static Page to “Home” but it is not listed. Am I looking in the right place?

    First, I love this theme. Thanks so much for providing this kind of quality in a free theme. My question is, can I put a download button in the audio player? Any help will be greatly appreciated!

  • tony waghorn, July 20, 2013

    I’d second pastor Eddie’s download though, but I might try:

    @Jon Ellis – your first step is that you need to create a PAGE and title it “Home” leave it blank. This is the page you pick in that dropdown.

    Thanks for the theme! It’s been great in helping get our church’s site off the ground.

    Just a bit of an issue regarding the homepage widgets, it doesn’t seem to be registering widgets as first, second, and last as it does in the demo. So instead of filling in the final/third column the third widget seems to be wrapping around to the first instead of filling into the third column. I was wondering if you could point me to where I could correct this. Been looking around the theme’s files in editor and haven’t come up with anything, and I can see that “.homepage-widgets .widget.last” is defined in the default stylesheet.

    Thanks again!

    Just installed the theme I am trying to figure out where the homepage slider is and how to edit it?

  • Pastor Eddie, July 30, 2013

    Hey Keith,

    In WordPress you should see on the left column the “Slides” link where you can click and set it up. Step by step instructions for the entire set up is found here /blog/theme-documentation/zion-church/ The instructions for the “Slides” page is about halfway down. Hope this helps!

    Hello –
    something odd is happening with the WP Admin interface (css) etc, having updated to WP 3.6. I have switched off all plugins that weren’t on before the update.

    Any ideas?

  • tony waghorn, August 7, 2013

    Sorry – it seems to be one of the other plugins.
    Switching them back on to find the broken one.

  • DeShuna Spencer, August 9, 2013

    Hello. Thanks so much for the theme. I’m doing the site for my parents’ church site. I read the documentation, but I did not read how to add text to accompany each homepage slider. I apologize in advance if I missed it. Thank you in advance.

  • Sisi Li, August 19, 2013

    Hi, thanks for the great theme. I do have a question, what do I need to change in order for the home slider to show say 20 photos? Right now I have over 20 slides in the slider but only 10 are being shown. Thanks!

  • kimmy, September 5, 2013

    How do you add text to the slider so that it shows on the homepage? On your sample there are texts displayed on your slider but I cant find anywhere to insert mine. Anyone knows???

  • dawn, September 11, 2013

    Your theme is so easy to use, thanks. I would echo the request for a method of displaying events which go over several days.
    Also, a second level menu sometimes which is displayed by default, not just on mouse-over.

  • Amy, September 22, 2013

    Is there a particular audio to use with this theme? Is it possible to have download link for the audio as well.

    Thanks for this awesome template.

  • Chuck, October 10, 2013

    I want to move from my host and create a free site. I have a wordpress site. Can I load your custom them to wordpress or do I have to upgrade the site to the $99/year model to do so?

    LOve your them and it will be perfect as we rebuild our church.

  • Robert, December 13, 2013

    Is it possible to make the theme translation ready, like many other themes?
