Hey Connexus…it's finally here!
Our brand new website is live. It's been completely rebuilt from the ground up not just to make your experience better, but to create a much better way to invite your friends to start a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
It's the easiest to use site we've ever built. And it's the most sharable yet.
Here are 5 things we think you're going to love about the new site:
1. Your friends can experience Connexus Live Online for the first time
So many of you have wanted to share exactly what happens on Sunday mornings with your friends: the music, the baptisms, the fun moments we do as well as the messages.
Now you can.
Starting Easter Sunday, March 27th, we're launching Connexus Live Online: the full live-streaming of both Sunday morning services at 9:00 and 10:30 a.m. Not just on Easter Sunday, but every Sunday.
It's not just a broadcast, it's an experience.
We'll have a live chat room where online guests can ask questions. Plus we have a live prayer team who will be taking peoples' prayer requests during the live-stream.
Connexus Live Online will go live Sunday morning.
In the meantime, just invite your out-of-town friends to join us Sunday morning by jumping onto www.connexuschurch.com.
2. Watch or access from any device anywhere
Our site is now fully optimized for any mobile device you're using.
You can watch our messages or access anything on the site using your phone, tablet, laptop or desktop. But the resolution is sharp enough that if you stream it to your 80″ tv, it will look great.
Go ahead. Grab as many devices as you can and try it out.
(That goes for Connexus Live Online too when it's live Sunday mornings.)
3. We've designed this with your friends in mind
Your friends matter to us because they matter to God.
So we created a special page just for them. It's everything we think a first time visitor might want to know.
Because we want your friends to feel personally welcome, we created an option for them to let us know they're coming (It's right under “Come See Us: Plan Your Visit”).
When a first time guest fills out the ‘let us know you're coming' form, our guest services team will greet them by name on Sunday morning, help their kids get settled and be able to connect with them after the service to see how things went.
4. Our messages are available on demand, anytime
In addition to watching our entire services live during Connexus Live Online Sunday mornings, we've started offering Connexus On Demand.
You can go back almost a year into our video archive on our site, and again, that now works on any device.
We've also made binge listening and binge watching a thing with easier-than-ever access to our audio and video podcasts. Our audio podcast has messages going back several years.
5. Our Events page will keep you in the know
Sometimes feel like you're in the dark with what's going on at Connexus?
Not anymore. We created an Events page that covers pretty any and every special event that's going on for adults, teens and kids.
