I have long been a fan of churchthemes.com and their Church Content plugin. My church, as well, is a happy customer—we’ve been using their church WordPress themes since 2013! And now, we’ve just switched over to the Saved Theme, and I have to say, I love it! Best of all, my pastor loves it, too. Here’s what the designers have to say about it:

There’s just so much to talk about with this church WordPress theme.
You know, that’s not enough not really enough to get the full effect. Take a minute and put this review on hold, and look at the Saved Demo.
Isn’t that one of the most beautiful home pages you’ve ever seen?
Now, I’m not going to go through and give you a step-by-step install review. Thankfully, churchthemes.com has already provided a lovely guide for you to check, in case you get confused. Instead, what I will do is give you my perspective on the theme.
Wow! Just wow! I just love this front page! It’s clean and easy to read, and the video banner??? How awesome is that? I know I’m salivating a bit here, but come on! The side images—which I still need to add to my church’s website—really make the content pop and underscore the text. I’m tired of people ignoring the text on the site, and I think this feature will help.
Finally, a calendar that looks clean and is easy to read! I’m also super pumped about the Events integration into the entire site. Nothing’s more frustrating than setting up all of these events and then having no one see, especially when they then come to you, complaining, because they didn’t know about an event. “I put it on the website!”
This is one of the most beautiful themes I’ve worked with. I use and recommend Studio Press themes for my non-church clients, but I think I might start pushing them toward churchthemes.com‘s Saved Theme, if it makes sense with their project/business. Even the mobile version, which might have a slightly small font size for my increasingly strained vision, is better than most premium themes I’ve seen.
WordPress is the best platform, in my humble opinion, for church websites, but that only holds true if you select a well-designed theme that presents the church’s events, sermons, and other components in a clean and clear way. The themes from churchthemes.com have always done that, and Saved Theme does it even more! Do your church a huge digital favor and upgrade your site in a major way!

Right now! Seriously, why are you still reading this?
*We purchased Resurrect Theme, Exodus Theme, and Maranatha Theme from churchthemes.com, but I was given a copy of Saved in exchange for the review you’re now reading. Be sure, what you’ve read here are my honest thoughts.
