Tell us we’re dreamin’ …

Maybe we are, but it’s a worthwhile dream. We’re dreaming of a new 500 seat auditorium, more car parking, and more space for kids. It’s a great dream for a growing church family… but the question is, can we fund it? That’s what we’re asking the members of our MPC community, as we launch our “Giving to Grow” campaign. We’ll be asking you to commit to a pledging process so we can compare available funds with projected costs. Then we’ll know if our dreams can become a reality. Read the full Fundraising Appeal Booklet for more information.

Adding a new sermon series

By | Wordpress Tutorial | No Comments

To add a new sermon series:

  • Login to wordpress for the MPC site.
  • Go to Sermons > Sermon Series on the left hand side menu.1
  • Type in the series name
    • Use the format “series name | year”
    • e.g. “A New Hope | 2017”
    • Don’t include quotation marks of course
  • Type in the slug name
    • The slug name is the URL name of the sermon page
    • Use the format  “year-seriesX-seriesTitle”, where the sermon title is lowercaps, no spaces
    • e.g. “2017-series1-anewhope
    • Because the series are alphabetically ordered by the slug titles, using this naming convention will keep the series in order on the teaching page, and it will display the most recent series at the top2
  • Click “Add new sermon series”
    • You’ll see the sermon series on the right now, but it won’t have a cover image.
  • Hit the “+” symbol below the series box (it will be a grey image with a “?” before you have uploaded a new image) and either upload a new image or browse the media library for an existing image.
    • Ideally, the image should be square, over 300 x 300 pixels, with a 50% transparent border slightly offset from the edge; but the plugin will resize it to 300x300px anyway.3
  • Once you find the image you wish to use, click “show” on the right and scroll down until you see “associate with X”, where X is your sermon series

If no image is associated with the sermon series, sermons associated with that sermon series will not appear on the teaching page.

Adding a new sermon

By | Wordpress Tutorial | No Comments

In these tutorials, I explain how to add a new sermon to the WordPress site. This requires someone (usually Bob) to have added the transcript, MP3, and e-reader files into the html page (http://media.mpc.org.au/resources/resources17.html).
