I am soon going to launch my church's website. We have leaned toward Drupal for many reasons, mainly it has all of the features the staff asked for initially (calender, photo gallery, staff able to add/modify content).
We have not decided on a host yet, so the official site is non-existent. But, I am a Linux user and have a box to play with and have LAMP running. So I have a testing site at http://jenkins.hopto.org/vhbc .
My only problem is the looks of the site. I currently have bluemarine enabled. Are there any church based themes out there to download or purchase? I have searched and it seems everyone points back to the themes that drupal offers.
Also I think it is great that there is a church group in drupal.
