    Ok i had a quick look, good first webite mate but some issues,

    The first thing i noticed, is that your webite gets a horizontal scrollbar on 1366x768 resolution screen. It's annoying to scroll horizontaly. You can fix it by setting the page width to something more standard like 800, 920 or 1024px or just make it 100% width.

    Another small thingy, its a church website. Mostly the color scheme for such websites is light. Use white background whenever possible.

    You have a good layout, you can see where the headers, navigation and footer is.
    Talking about the navigation, on website you should immediately see what plain text is and what a link is. Put some style on your menu items and other links as well, it will make a difference.

    For the rest there are no huge issues, it's a good start. Your first website is much better than my first one was hehe. Overall good base mate.

    First thing I noticed that the page is too wide, I have a 1600x900 screen resolution and when the page opens my bottom scroll bar opens. Try designing the page for more popular resolutions 1024x768 is a good target to hit.

    Second, personally white text on a black background puts too much strain on the eyes .


    Third, try making the font size in the body of the site a little smaller.


    Fourth, center aligned paragraphs look sloppy, try aligning your text in the body to the left.


    Last, you may want to create navigation buttons or a navigation menu on the left, something distinguishable that shows people how to get around on the site.

    well im not a web designer tho i have tried. but i went and looked around and from my point a view i think you have a stand up web page.everything is there info pics style and the fact that if this is you you are doing great things for people and family's both either way much respect to you and the mission the site stands for brother.

    Thanks for the input, and thats exactly what I was looking for, I to hate horizontal scroll bars as well, and I do want to do buttons for the navigation of the site. Well its a good thing I saved everything in a PSD LOL. I will be making some changes, and will check back in about week to get a little more input. Thanks again Harvey,Dark Knight, and Deviantdon.
