It differs from the Facebook group in that it does not require people to join Facebook. Not all of our members want to join Facebook for various reasons.

Other social media presence (Facebook page, Instagram, Threads, Twitter, Mastodon, Bluesky, YouTube) are primarily outward-facing, to let the wider community know what we're doing. They lean more toward announcement than conversation.

Overall, the biggest difference is that it is run and moderated only by our church. Sometimes Facebook gets aggressive/confused over what is or isn't appropriate and takes automatic action.

This forum is specifically for the United Congregational Christian Church.
United Church of Christ used to host a phpBB forum, but they haven't for some years.

Only The Narthex and Admin are available at first.
After I see a church member has joined, I upgrade their account so they can see other forums.
