2020 Update:
Over the last few years, the Forest Grove website has evolved into a fresh, interactive website that members have come to rely on for current calendar of events, sermon video and audio and online signup and giving.

Since 2013, VanDenBerg Web + Creative has provide website maintenance and support services to keep the site updated and fresh. During staffing changes, we provided trainings, so youth pastors and office staff can manage the day to day updates while we provide technical support and keep the site safe and secure.

2013 Site Redesign:
Forest Grove Reformed Church contacted me in the summer of 2013 in hopes of giving there website a make over.

We combine the Pastor’s Blog, two Youth Group Blogs and the church newsletter into building the site. One of the most popular sections on the old site (based on viewing data) was the audio of Pastor Jud’s sermons. So I made sure the sermons were front and center and easy to find. We also added a PDF download link for the weekly devotional.

We were pleased with the results and will continue training staff on using the website systems to maximize their communication efforts.

Project Highlight:

  • Built on WordPress
  • Maintained by Church Staff
  • Dynamic Events Calendar
  • Email Subscriptions/Notifications for each blog
  • Audio Player
  • Devotional Download


As a Consistory member of my church, I had the pleasure to work with Rebecca on a redesign of the church’s website. Rebecca’s innovative ideas gave the website a much needed update. The site is intuitive for users and Rebecca did a great job introducing features of our site to our congregation in simple terms. Rebecca really did a wonderful job bringing the website up to date and adding new content and functionality.

Rebecca redesigned our church website. It was well thought out and she worked well with the different groups to make it fresh and easy to use and make updates.
