Please read this to get started at Refreshing Hope:
We thank you for your interest in joining our online church at Refreshing Hope. We are a Christian based community helping to encourage each other. We have security measures in place to help us provide a safe and spam free environment, and here are some things that you should know when getting started:
1) A confirmation email will be sent to the email address that you provide above, so use a real one. Please click the link in the email to activate your account. If you do not see it, then please check your junk folder, it may be there. If you cannot find it, please use the contact us form and let us help you.
2) Please use a real name. This is an online christian community and we all go by our name here. If we see someone with a fake name like "Knucklehead, Chosen One, Gods Girl, bla bla bla", we will delete your account, but you can create another one. It is not personal, just a site policy.
3) Upload a profile picture. It is always good to put a name with a face and we are a friendly group here. If you need help with a picture, please contact us. The account creator will not let you continue on without adding a profile picture. If you are ashamed of the way you look, then you can upload a picture of something else, but a picture is required.
4) We are here to help you. If you have questions about anything, or find anything offensive on the site, please take the time to let us know about it so that we can correct it.
