Why did we get rid of Slack?
We are very thankful for the community conversations and connection that have been able to happen over Slack. That said, Slack is designed for workplaces, not community groups, so some of its features are not ideal for us. We've been working with a company called Subsplash since becoming fully planted in 2021 - we have our website and online giving through them, and we've been quietly working on an App this whole time. Subsplash recently added a messaging option, which has everything we loved about Slack, as well as some church-specific features Slack didn't have. That finally pushed us to launch our App and encourage everyone to jump on board.Do I need to create an account to use the App?
Some features of the App will not work unless you are logged in, including Group Messaging, and Giving. If you have given online to Christ Church before, you probably already have an account, so use the same login info. (Here's a helpful article about logging in or signing up for a Subsplash account.
Other features of the App don't require logging in - the Lectionary, our sermon recordings, the calendar, and all links to content from the home page will work just fine without an account.I'd like to create a messaging group for people who are interested in [ultimate frisbee, poetry, outdoor concerts, etc.]. How do I do that in the App?
You can request a new group by reaching out to Kaitlyn
.Is there a desktop version of the App?
Most of the content of the App can be found on our website:
The one thing that's only available on the App is the Lectionary section, which compiles all the daily readings for you in one place to read or listen to. However, there are a lot of other ways you can access the Lectionary, which you can find on our Liturgical Life page
