8 great free resources your church could use

At ChurchApp, we do what we do because we want to serve the church and help it thrive. In pursuit of this mission, we have been posting a lot of articles recently about how your church could use ChurchApp to do a lot of things better and more efficiently.

Today, we want to take a different tack, and point you to a few resources we've found that other people provide. These resources are all free. We hope you'll find something useful here!

1. Free stock photos

8. Flickr

Flickr photo site, a great source of images for churches

Another great source of images that you can use for your ministries is Flickr. You can search for images that carry a "Creative Commons" licence, which means you have a lot of legal freedom in terms of how you can use the image.
