Sermons Template

Overview

Sermons Layout 4 was designed to display your sermons in reverse chronological order (newest first) but also allows the user to filter down to see specific sermons within a Series, Category, Month or by a specific Preacher.

Once the user selects the specific sermon that they would like to watch/listen to, they can click on one 1 of the 4 possible icons for each sermon to either watch the sermon video, listen to the sermon audio, download the sermon audio, or read the sermon notes.

They can also click on the sermon title to see more information about that specific sermon.

NOTE: If a video, audio and/or notes (PDF or DOC) file is not uploaded, the icon(s) associated with that file will not be displayed.

To utilize this Sermon Template, you will first need to make sure that you have a page in the Pages Module (CONTENT > Pages) that has this template assigned to it. See the screenshot below for how to assign a template to a page. Once you have a page that is using the correct template, you can then assign it to your site's navigation, where ever you would like it to go.
