The City is a place online for Veritas to stay connected as a body. It’s easier to feel like a part of the community on Sundays at a worship gathering or at your Community Group, but how do you stay connected when during the rest of the week? The City provides an online space to share prayer requests, post needs, organize events, and just generally keep in contact with the people of your community. If your next question is, “Ugh, it’s Facebook, just smaller and more spiritualized,” don’t worry; The City is built around the groups you’re already involved in to encourage better face-to-face time, rather than centering around just online interaction.
The mission and ministry of the church isn’t just for the pastors and staff; it’s the calling on every member of Veritas. The City was made specifically for the church to encourage that. The ministry that God has put before us means that we need to work together: worshiping together, being in community together, serving together, learning together, and going out on mission together. The City helps us organize all of that. We can’t expect to be able to do the ministry of the church on our own Monday through Saturday, “recharge” on Sundays, and just be okay. We need the community every day and The City helps connect us and be that community together every day.
Some features of The City include:
—Groups that reflect our community
—Announcements and events
—Sharing prayers, needs, and service opportunities
