Discover new neighbors moving into nearby communities. Generate lists of neighborhood household addresses for targeted mailings. Connect member households to one another, and to nearby neighbors.

Using Social Media to Celebrate Holy Days (Fri 4:00)
Social media opens the opportunity to celebrate Holy Days with people with whom you might not otherwise be able to connect. It also gives others (of all ages) a way to engage in the celebration or remembrance. Social media provides new tools to invite people from the neighborhood (sometimes global neighborhood) to share the Good News and the ever-growing faith journey.
