The City is our church database and a completely new approach to communication and connecting at our church. And it's incredibly secure: it’s protected and encrypted with some of the highest security available and it’s a closed community to Vineyard participants only. We're really, really excited about it!
Why We Love the City
We can communicate more efficiently
We often receive feedback that it's difficult to find out about all the great things happening here at the Vineyard. The City provides focused and specific email communication, so you can always know what’s going on. You're in control of what information you get (and how often). And you can easily share it with your friends.
We can grow in deeper community
Each group in our church has its own place on the City to start discussions, share news and prayer requests, list volunteer opportunities, host events, manage RSVPs, and even share pictures! Small groups exist to provide friendship, deepen our relationship with Jesus and support growth and connections in our lives. From start to finish, the City will help you connect with your small group.
We can be part of a dynamic database
The City is also a living database where participants in our church can keep their information current. In fact, this will be our only database. We also have an online giving feature, right on the City. There you can also see your giving statements, manage payments and more!
We can discover more small groups
The City has some great tools that make it easy for people who are new to our church to get connected, find and join a small group or discover the perfect place to serve. Even those who've been around awhile can learn about our ever-changing serving opportunities and small groups.
We can securely offer kids check-in
The City allows us to safely and quickly check kids in at all of our campuses and keep parents involved and up-to-date with what their kids are learning. It's a huge improvement from anything we've had before!
And much, much more
We can't even begin to talk about all the features! There's a marketplace for posting goods and services, a Bible reading plan, a spot to share God stories with the church, a personal journal tool... The list goes on and on.
