Manage small groups, classes, discipleship groups, leadership groups, projects and more through Cobblestone. Our system puts these groups at the forefront encouraging participation by those who are included in Cobblestone. Groups can be public, require an administrator’s approval to join or they can be private by invitiation only. Determine the modules you would like to use for the group to create a 10-week class with curriculum or an ongoing small group to share prayer and study the Word together.
Event management is easy with Cobblestone. Create events, discuss them, volunteer to bring needed items, see who is attending and manage re-occurrence with ease. View event listings, calendars and map views of events. Export events into your Outlook or other calendars with ease. Events can even be shared with your public website for those who use Ekklesia 360.
Allow people to share prayer requests and pray for one another. Prayers that are posted can include the urgency, be tagged to include the people or primary areas that need prayer. People can respond with encouragement, scripture or even let the person know they prayed for them. Prayers are shared within a community and can be private to a group or the community at large. Our prayer module follows up with the person who posted it to report back and see if the prayer was answered.
Cobblestone allows people and administrators to participate in multiple sites with ease. View and access numerous Cobblestone sites with one login. Our system provides a filter to find all of your messages or specific site messages, an easy way to manage or participate in multiple sites.
Public Website Integration

By integrating, an event can be created and published on the public website as well as within Cobblestone. On the public site people can RSVP and make payments to attend the event, while within Cobblestone the planners can discuss the event and determine who will be there to help volunteer and serve. There are numerous powerful advantages to using the full integrated service offered with these tools. Contact us to learn more.
