As an online community with members spread across multiple countries it may seem difficult for us to come together and build a sense of community. After all, there’s no coffee hour after the service or community hall to hang out in. To overcome this we work hard to create opportunities to build community online through discussion groups, video calls, pastor office hours, bible study groups, and care groups.
Of course, you are also welcome to just come to services and hang out “in the back of the room” too! You only need to be as involved in the community as you want to be.
If you have a Facebook account then an easy way to get involved is to join our Facebook group. This group is sort of like our community hall where people hang out before and after services.
The place where we do most of our community building is on our Faithlife page. Faithlife is a social networking site built especially for churches and it provides more tools for building church communities than Facebook does. All of the various church committees and groups that you would normally find in a physical church building are found on Faithlife at Community Universalist Church.
Our bible study group also meets on Faithlife using the group chat features found there. You don’t need to be a member of the main church Faithlife group to join the bible study group.
