  1. Click Groups in the navigation menu (at the top of the page).

  2. Click Create Group.

  3. Choose a header image by clicking Change Image. This will be used as the main image for the group when it appears in the overview page, and on the timeline.

  4. Click What's the name of your group? and enter a name.

  5. Click Write something... and enter any additional information you want to include, like a description or details of the group.

  6. While writing this main content, you will see a toolbar appear above your text. Select any text and click one of the buttons to make text bold, italic, underlined. You can also create a header (slightly larger text), and a bulleted list.

  7. If you'd like to add an image to your content, click Add Image on the toolbar. This opens the image picker, which is pre-populated with stock images free for you to use. Alternatively, if you'd like to use an image you already have on your computer, click Upload Image. Once you've chosen the image, click Use this image.

  8. On the right, choose the type of group.

  9. Choose the visibility of the group. Groups can be
    Open: visible to everyone. Any church member can join.
    Closed: visible to everyone. New members can only join after being invited by an existing member of that group.
    Hidden: not visible to anyone unless they are already a member of that group. New members can only join after being invited by an existing member of that group.

  10. Enter meeting notes that are useful to group members. Does your group meet at a certain time or place?

  11. Enter a short summary to be shown on the overview page. We recommend a sentence or two to briefly explain the group.

  12. Click Create. The group will be created and your church members will see a post on their timeline.
