Easter is prime opportunity to reach people in your community who may be looking for a church to worship with on Easter or other related activities Easter weekend.
Many churches recognize this and want to put information about their Easter services and events online.
What’s the best way to do this?
There are basically three options:
Webpage - Church - Website

This gives your Easter page consistent branding with the rest of your church website, and it will be easy for people who come to the Easter page to click around to the rest of your website and learn more about your church.
Page - Option - Builder - Management - System
Adding a web page is also the easiest option to implement with a website builder or content management system.
A microsite is a small, website with a handful of pages. It typically has its own domain name (e.g., EasterAtCalvary.org) and a different theme from the church’s main website.

This doesn’t make sense for promoting Easter worship services, but it could make sense if your church does an Easter Eggstravaganza or Easter Cantata as an outreach to unchurched people.
A microsite might also be a good option if on Easter you are launching a big new series or initiative. For example, a microsite would be good if...
