Technology makes life easier for the customer and the business when making reservations and availability inquiries.  Reduces the back and forth of emails, phone calls and missed opportunities.

It is important, however we lack skills in this area. We only use one social media-Facebook.

This scroll effect is what we want to incorporate into our church website.  Really like the simplicity of this site and how it reflects a modern web design.

Drew we have had a lot going on so Redeemer's website has taken a back seat until today.  Was moving along pretty good until I started working on the secondary pages and realized my main page "about us" header had changed when I did the header for the secondary pages.  I have searched this site and found only info for sitebuilder page management.  So I need your help and also on the main page I have an issue with linking the images (4 of them) to my secondary pages.  My site is redeemercatawba.homestead.com  Are there any tutorial pages available for Websitebuilder?  Thanks for any guidance you can provide.

Anything in the "header" section will show on all pages, so I recommend creating a smaller header with just the navigation menu and name and then you can have the rest of the content below. There are articles in Community for Website Builder, and if you don't see one, ask and it can be considered for creating one.
What issue are you having linking images?

Thank you Elyzabeth ..... I will rework the header on my site.  As for linking images I placed 4 images in my third section (I think) using image gallery.  I was able to use my images and change text, but in preview when you scroll over the image it goes into a slide show ... so determined this is not what I want. I also want each of my four images to link to a secondary page on the site.  Drew worked with me on this but I  have lost his email.  I do recall he said I would need to add a tab for each image. 

Is there a tutorial anywhere I can get?  The tutorial offered in the editor itself does not work for me.  When I Google all I get is Site Builder and I am very familiar with this version of your product.  Thanks for any assistance.

It sounds like you would just need to add 4 separate individual images and use the link icon in the menu for each image to link to another page. There is no tutorial for linking images currently. It is very simple though. Add the image, than click the link icon and choose the website page you want it to link to.
