Why does Grace Community Church use The City?
As the Lord grows our church, the ability for our people to live in gospel-centered community becomes more difficult. The City gives us a place to find that community and also provides smaller platforms of communications to enhance it. We can keep track of an up-to-date database and communicate with all of the members and attenders of GCC through The City. Ultimately, The City better enables us to be the body of Christ.
Is The City just another social network?
No. Popular social networks like Facebook and Twitter are geared toward individuals and their needs. The City is geared toward groups and the needs of the local church. Also, whereas most social networks create and replace community, The City merely supplements community that already exists. The database and check-in functionality set it apart as well.
How does the church communicate via The City?
Our elders and staff communicate to our body on a church, home group, and individual level, sharing ministry opportunities, prayer requests, event information, etc. Leaders communicate to groups and volunteers. Group members communicate with one another and their leader.
