Welcome To The City
If you are a member or regular attender at Calvary, we want to make sure you know how critical it is that you are part of The City. Namely, to be a part of and know what is going on at Calvary, you will need to be a part of The City. All our communications, events, and critical community connections, will take advantage of and happen through this tool. It is mission critical.
And, it comes with this benefit: We think you are really going to like it!
So that you understand both those reasons - it's support of our mission and the "like" factor - I want you to hear from another pastor, Matt Chandler, on why their church launched The City, and how it has helped them enable and support community.
Please...take 4 and 1/2 minutes to watch this video.

Questions & Answers
Why does Calvary need 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. Ultimately, The City enables us to better 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.
How will the church communicate via The City?
- Our pastors, elders and staff will communicate to our body on a church and group level, sharing ministry opportunities, prayer requests, event information, etc
- Leaders will communicate to groups and volunteers
- Group members will communicate with one another and their leaders
. There are endless ways for the church to communicate via The City
