VWD 2008 Express. Visual Basic.
I would like to set up an editable web page for each of our jurisdictions and if possible take advantage of available free services. I have looked at Google's blogspot (blogger.com). Although this provides a nice free blogging service, what I am after
is not truly a blog, but a place where our chaplains can post information on their local ministries, testimonials, news, upcoming events, etc. Not exactly a blog. I want to setup a template for them and then allow them to add content as desired. Can anyone
suggest something other than blogger.com; something that is a quasi web site with some minimal blogging features? Thanks for any help.

Most blogging sites like this provide most or all of the features you should need. Might look at WordPress or even setting up a Live site. Another option would be a portal system like DotNetNuke, Umbraco or Community Server.

I agree with Jeff. WordPress will be a good choice.

With your case, you can also choose to use BlogEngine.NET (more related to Blogs site) or Kentico CMS, another great and popular .NET online content management system.
All of this software require you to have your own ASP.NET hosting account, it is not same as Blogger where you can host your blog on the free account.
You can always consult your web hosting providers on how to setup these software.

I think DotNetNuke would be a better option. It comes fully loaded with a set of powerful built-in tools. These tools are helpful to manage and customize site design, content, security and membership options etc. It also includes a multi-language localization
