Sermons Layout 3

Overview

Sermons Layout #3 was specially designed to showcase your current and past Sermon Series. This page displays the latest Current Sermons Series image, title & summary in the left column, and then displays all of the sermons in the series in the right column.

The layout also includes a 'Filter By' bar at the top which allows viewers to filter sermons by Series, Category, Month and Preacher.
