One of the goals of The City is to cultivate deeper community among the people of NewBranch. That is why your User Profile is so important. You can let others know who you are, your hobbies, interests, abilities, etc. This will aid in building relationships with your brothers and sisters in Christ. Making your skills known will also open up doors for you to serve others in various ways.
If you haven’t filled out your profile and skills page, its very easy. here’s a little guide:
1. Once you are logged into the city click ‘Settings’ under your profile pic. Under the profile section, take time to fill out details including phone number, marital status, and profile picture. Share a little bit about your self in the ‘About Me’ section.
2. While this post focuses more on the Profile and Skills section of your Account Settings, take the time to fill out the details of the other sections: Family- your profile can link you to your family members on The City. Addresses- ‘Adding your address(es) helps you stay connected to groups and friends from your church. The City also uses your address to help you find groups that may be of interest to you.‘ And Email- you can control the email updates that you receive from The City.
3. Under the ‘Skills‘ tab simply check the boxes that apply to you. As the note says at the top of the page, ‘Selecting your skills helps you get connected to opportunities to help others.‘
