When you first receive your new website, it comes with a default color scheme. You can easily update the colors for different parts of your website by setting your own church's brand colors. Before you get started, have your church's brand color palette 🎨 hex codes handy so you can copy and paste them into the website customizer.

Click Publish to save your changes.
Note: Keep in mind good web design accessibility. It is more important to have easily readable fonts than aesthetic color combinations. Aim for the highest color contrast as possible.

After you set all your brand colors, now they will show up in different parts of your website when you select your background color in page builder blocks.
Open your Visual Editor. For Page Header, click the Options tab and set the Header Type to your different colors.
For other blocks, click the Settings tab and choose your Background to one of your brand colors.
