At the end of August, a diverse group of 30 young adults gathered to discuss the CRC, its future, and the role of young people in our denomination. You can read more about it in the recent Banner article Connecting the Church with Young Adults.

From this meeting, they produced a 'manifesto...

As we were developing The Network, someone suggested including a "My Church" feature where you can see a list of other Network users from YOUR own congregation. It's fun to browse questions and comments from people you know in real life.

If you haven't yet tried this feature, just click ...

I put this in the Feedback and then thought I'd put it here, too. 

I think it'd be very helpful if you had a search box up in the header, or at the top of the page every page. I see it on many pages. The place I missed it the most was on the Home page. I came to the network the other day...

Last Wednesday we sent an email to all CRC pastors and church offices. It's something we do very judiciously  - in fact, it was our first email to pastors about The Network since the launch last February.

We asked you to forward the email to your congregation, or at least your ministry...

Over here Randy asked a really good question: Why does every comment require a Captcha response (that's the little thingy where you type text that's hard for spam robots to read)?

Here's why...some comment spammers will create accounts manually (easily answering the Captcha) and only THEN...

I'd love to see a button on a discussion page that says "email this to a friend" then allows you to put in an email address, to whom will be sent a link to the page.  (kind of like they do on a real estate page to show a friend a house you like).  I was just on the page about "waiting for...

Linda Foster just won a fancy-schmancy Network mug!

Yesterday evening, she posted her very first comment on the Network. And it just happened to be our 1,000th - so she wins!

And we honestly couldn't imagine a more worthy recipient. Take a second to:

Everything seems to be covered here except a network for ministering to the elderly. Is there one that deals with this that I have missed?

I'm not sure whether this already happens, but I think it doesn't. I'd like it if, whenever I post a comment or article or whatever, it automatically "subscribes" me to that topic so I receive an email if others add comments. I'm thinking of it working the same was as Facebook does. When you post...

I was excited to get the weekly update with a link to a pdf entitled "Architectural_Evangelism. But, sadly the link was broken. Where can I get this info, and does anyone have leads on where to get funding for our accessibility addition to our CRC church building? Thanks!

 Who said denominations are slow?Well, OK, maybe I've said that once or twice too. But not this time! Just a couple of days after it was announced, we've implemented Facebook's new "Like" button on the Network site. It feels good to be johnny-on-the-spot sometimes!

It's been a month since the launch of this Network site. The CRC news guy is looking to write a story about it and would like some quotes from people who have used it.

What are your impressions so far?

Please give your feedback below. Or, if you prefer, you may email him directly.

We are currently searching for a new Music Director at my church. Someone who is able to not only lead the choirs but can also train voices. However I would love if the candidates were at the least familiar with CRC beliefs and principles. The difficulty that I'm encountering is a lot of music...

Hi  Great work done by all!

Just to compliment you sincerely on your work on this website!!!   Personally I appreciate the forum to comment or to raise new or old issues for discussion in the broader northamerican crc context.   It works better than a type of "controlled" publication, although it is risky also.   I don't need another cup, since my cupboard "runneth over", but you deserve encouragement, so here it is. 

If Paul wins, I want a referral fee.... hahahaaaa.

Hi 

I lead a Mocha Moms group at church and would love a Network mug for the mocha!  Plus the gift certificate would be ideal for purchasing inspirational devotionals.  Eager to hear from you! 

Hi from sunny southern CA

Hello!!! I already have a mug, but I would love some new reading material. :)

Hi!

Did I forget to mention that staff are excluded? Still, got you to post. Yeah!

If there was a thumbs-up, I'd be using it here. Thanks!

Sorry, we'll be randomly selecting by username rather than comment. Nice try though :-)

Hi!

hi! :)

Hi!  Is the CRC version of the lottery?  Does it help to say "hi" twice?

Hi!  Is the CRC version of the lottery?

This looks like a bribe, but it seems to be working!

Does anyone else have the "Hello, Better." commercial running through their head?

Hi, My wife and I are sharing this account.  Looking forward to reading more.

HI, like it!

I love to win!

Hi, find the Network a great resource.  So many qualified people out there willing to chime in.

Hello!

Glad you're back in, Betty! If you use Facebook, you can log into The Network using that instead (it will match by your email address). Same with Google or Yahoo logins. One less password to remember!

Hello from Sarnia!  I could sure use a nifty mug like that!  I tried last year to log in, but could never remember my password.  Hopefully I'll do better this year.

Hello! What? Free stuff? I'm in.

I have an account & login for everything else, guess it's about time I have one on here as well!
Thanks for the work you do!

Cowabunga !

Hi!  Look forward to receiving and reading the Network News each week.  Have been motivated to comment a number of times about some of my passions.

Also looking forward to receiving my mug and gift card!

Hi!

Soli Deo Gloria

Hi and Hello!  Technically retired, but totally rewired!  Network coffee sure beats Peets!

Hi. I could use a new mug.

Hi!!

It is wonderful if there is a note about a Canadian issue in this email newsletter. It would be nice if this could happen more often

Hi!  

Hello.  (Can I have my mug now?) 

Hi! I love reading from the network every week, and also participating in some of the webinars!

Such kind words, Geri. Thank you!

Hi! Thanks for being part of the Network! I read and research topics often, but don't post comments much... I'd love a new tea mug, and my husband would love it if I used 'free money' for my Amazon addiction. :)

Blessings on all those who richly bless us! 

Hi Ellen, Thanks for joining in! Check out the discussion here - I think it's exactly what you're looking for. Or if you have more specific questions, feel free to post a new question/discussion in that same forum and I'm sure some others will chime in to assist. Network members are a helpful bunch!
