The last couple years have been a wonderful journey for the Table Project. In summary, an idea was conceived, dozens of churches verified the need and collaborated on the design, "The Table" was built and now after over 100 churches have tested the system, we are excited to open the doors to everyone!
The momentum is growing for private social networks within churches. As these types of systems are rolled out, churches are seeing how different the conversation is on a private custom network than their public facebook page or twitter stream. We are proud to be the only community software built for the church that is absolutely free.
We encourage growth on your Table by not putting any restrictions on members, groups or content. It was our goal from the beginning to create a delightful product that was both enterprise level and no cost to the local church. It is our gift to you, and we are excited to see how you use it.
Help us spread the word.
1) Send this link (http://bit.ly/gSb0Vu) to anyone you know in ministry that may want their own private social platform.
2) Tweet "The @table is free to everyone Feb.23rd"
3) Post our video on your blog or website.
Still wondering about everything the Table will do for your church? View this video and be watching for our new feature pages that will make their debut on this site in a few days.
Fellowship One and The Table have been in extended strategic conversations over the past two years about how their respective products could be integrated to maximize the ministry of local churches across North America. A few months ago we announced a formal partnership and we are excited today to be announcing the completion of the first phase of the integration of our products -- the evidence of which you can see in the screen shots below. We anticipate being able to announce deeper levels of integration with this great partner in the coming months!
Over 20 churches connected their F1 database to The Table during our testing phase and had very positive feedback. As of today, this integration is available to all Table churches. When you combine the administrative strength of F1 with the community goodness of The Table, you get the best of both worlds: a platform that is helpful to church staff and engaging to your members.
What does it do? Let's look under the hood.
- Easy set-up - connects profiles in the F1 database to the Table in minutes
- Hands-off administration - automatically pushes and pulls the most recent data
- Targeted invite system - invites are can be sent to subgroups or the entire church
- Pre-baked profiles - upon receiving an invite from an F1-connected Table, your member's data is pre-populated to make signing up a breeze.
- Custom matching system - we help you match accounts that look similar but are not yet syncing with each other
Phase your roll-out by testing on Staging before rolling out to Production
Our match-rating system helps you connect and sync accounts quickly
When a user makes changes in F1, the system confirms the changes are appropriate on the Table as well
