I ran across another social community building application for your church. The Table Project is a very interesting and free application that will allow you to build an online community for your church.
I just can’t help but thinking these types of applications are moving us in a bad direction. Creating a silo for our online church community to hang out in, seems counter productive to me. If you are trying to create an online community OUTSIDE of my normal workflow, I am never going to use it. Once again, the goal should be to connect your church in a way that is natural and normal for users. And right now, that platform is Facebook.
Here’s a simple idea: why not develop a Facebook app for building church community?
