If not, try watching the Grovo tutorials on Facebook. There are several including “Signing Up for Facebook” at http://www.grovo.com/facebook-getting-started/signing-up-for-facebook

To Join the Closed Congregational Group on Facebook

To join the “closed Facebook group” established for members of the congregation you’ll need to log into your Facebook account at www.facebook.com and use the search box to search for “Mission Road.” In the search results, under Groups, you’ll see Mission Road Congregation Members Only Group. This is the Facebook “closed group” and a place you can post prayer concerns, and other news specific to the congregation.

When you arrive at the page, click the Join button (by the group name). If you have difficulty, contact Jonathan Bacon at jonathanpbacon. Once you’ve joined (and one of the site administrators confirms your membership), you’ll thereafter see the Mission Road Congregation Members Only Group link in the left margin of your Facebook page. Click that link anytime to view the Group’s page.

Keep in mind that the public site (Community of Christ – Mission Road) is used for announcements and news meant for the public (everyone), while the Mission Road Congregation Members Only Group is for information intended just for congregational members (prayer lists, baby shower announcements, wedding announcements, budget updates, and so on).
