Frequently Asked Questions
What is The City?
The City is an online tool that helps you connect with others and to the mission of First Presbyterian Church. It’s designed around the many groups that make up our church: Small Groups, Ministry Teams, Sunday School classes, etc. The City will be a very helpful tool as we strive together to be a community on mission.
How is The City different from other social networks, like Facebook?
Typically, interaction on social networks starts and stops online. You post a picture of your lunch, your friends like and comment on it, and that’s that. This is a common objection that people have to social media, because it creates a false sense of connection by trying to replace real life interaction with a post, comment, or like. The City, on the other hand, is specifically designed to facilitate community and mission amongst actual groups of people within the church who meet, work, and pray together in real life. Simply put, we do not depend on The City to create a sense of digital community and mission, rather, we use it as a digital tool to help facilitate the real life community and mission that we are already doing.
What does The City do that other social networks can’t?
While The City is primarily a communication tool, it is not only a communication tool. It also allows the covenant partners of First Presbyterian Church to do things like give online, meet other people from First Presbyterian who live in their neighborhood, find volunteer opportunities based of their skills, and check their children on Sunday Mornings. Because The City is just for First Presbyterian Church, it allows us to do some powerful things that we simply could not do using other social media sites.
