Got more than one campus? Want to show what’s happening churchwide but also at each one? Display.Church has got you covered.
Display.Church has extensive filtering options which blend with your integration. Colonial Presbyterian Church has put these to excellent use! Let’s see how they show both what is happening churchwide as well as what is going on at each campus.
HOME PAGES FOR CHURCHWIDE VS CAMPUS BY CAMPUS
The main home page [https://colonialkc.org/] reflects the overall church. The menu at the top has a clear EVENTS link. That link brings you to their Events page showing churchwide happenings. We will look at that page (which also uses filtering in a creative way) in a moment.
Scroll down the home page to find links to both campuses.
So, now we have 3 home pages: Colonial churchwide [https://colonialkc.org/], Overland Park [https://colonialkc.org/overland-park/], and South KC [https://colonialkc.org/south-kc/]. Each home page has an upcoming events display created with the Display.Church Cards (Grid) template. The Colonial home page churchwide display shows all the events. Using filtering, Colonial Presbyterian Church uses Display.Church filtering to display campus-specific event on each of the campus home pages. The GIF below cycles between the 3 home pages.
The Colonial Presbyterian Church Events Page is always the same, no matter from which home page or campus you begin. In other words, it shows churchwide events.
However, please notice that there are three options: ALL, KIDS, STUDENTS. Having tabs on the same page is not a Display.Church feature. Colonial Presbyterian Church has wisely used the ‘best of both worlds’ principle: using their website builder options in a ‘whatever works’ philosophy. However, the content of the different displays is created using Display.Church filtering options for Colonial Presbyterian Church’s integration.
Each option begins with a repeat of the Cards (Grid) template displayed on the home page. After that, the ALL and KIDS options have a Display.Church Monthly Calendar template. Of course, the ALL monthly calendar shows churchwide events which the KIDS monthly calendar shows kid-specific happenings.
ONE MORE THING
Wherever you see the left/right arrows, viewers have navigation. Viewers can move backwards and forwards between the weeks or months as desired.
LINKS ON THE MINISTRIES PAGE
The Learn More link brings you to the Kids page. On this page is a repeat of the Kids Cards (Grid) events display from the Events page and the Kids Monthly Calendar with kid-specific happenings.
The Learn More link brings you to the Students page. On this page is a repeat of the Students Cards (Grid) events display from the Events page and a new Students Monthly Calendar with student-specific happenings.
I just wanted to hop on here and say thank you for all your hard work. Displaychurch.events has been an awesome resource!

I can vouch for [DisplayChurch.Events] as a great resource for your website. It should work on most websites because you just copy and paste a code.
Hey there - I got around to testing this and it seems to work fine for me. ...I’ve also implemented the new campus and group filtering. Very much awesome, man.
We love the way [our events are] now being displayed on our website and mobile apps. We just update the events in CCB calendars, and DCE updates the events everywhere.

AMAZING! I love how responsive you are to requests. This app has become a HUGE life and time saver for me as I’m currently redesigning our website.
It has saved us time by being able to enter the data once, probably around 5 hours each week on the whole.

The old system definitely worked, but when we decided to create a new website, we wanted to do it in a way that worked seamlessly with CCB, which is where so much of our data already lives.

It’s working well for us. Have it integrated to our WordPress website and it’s already saving time and ensuring seamless data integrity with our CCB events and forms.

Hey! I am actively using and enjoying your Calendars! Using PCO is a breeze! It hooked up easily and has lots of customization options to tweak. I also love that your team seems to be continually making it better all the time.

The calendar product works great! We use it for our events as well as for our Bible readings. The best feature for me is to be able to make the changes in Planning Center and then quickly sync them to see them in our website.
