Why does Grace Community Church use Church Center?
As the Lord grows our church, the ability for our people to live in a gospel-centered community becomes more difficult. We used The City to help foster community for years, but the company that manages The City stopped supporting it in 2019. We replaced using The City with Faithlife Groups until the company who manages it stopped supporting it in 2023. Church Center is where our church had already been giving online, registering for events online, and was where our Church Directory is hosted. Therefore, we begain utilizing Church Center Groups in the summer of 2023 for church-wide inter-communication as well. Ultimately, Church Center better enables us to be the body of Christ.
Is Church Center Groups just another social network?
No. Popular social networks like Facebook and Twitter are geared toward individuals and their needs. Church Center Groups is geared toward groups and the needs of the local church. Also, whereas most social networks create and replace community, Church Center Groups merely supplements community that already exists. Church Center Groups allow us to endeavor to "pray without ceasing" for one another, which is quite different from other social networking platforms.
How does the church communicate via Church Center Groups?
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 with groups and volunteers. Group members communicate with one another and the church family.
