    I find all of the comments and sites interesting.  But none seem to serve what we are looking for.  What I did when the church decided to update the current site was form a small committee 5 plus the senior pastor then I led them through a process of determining what the first and second purpose of the website was.  We choose bring new people into our church Hopefully most would be non-Christians.  Second was to serve the current members with what is going on.  Everything then took second place to the primary purpose.    Knowing sales you have just a few seconds to grasp someones attention.  While all of these are good to great church website themes that serve a current congregation I did not see a lot of them that would grab my attention and intriguing me make me want to looking deeper.  We have not decided yet (will do that later this month) but we found the Moxy theme interesting and that it could be adapted to a church theme.
