Facebook Groups

North Star sponsors a variety of private Facebook groups intended to provide a confidential, safe, and moderated forum in which you can offer and receive support in your efforts to faithfully and healthfully live the gospel of Jesus Christ.

As interest, need, and activity level evolve, these groups are subject to change. If there is a particular demographic for which you feel a group would be beneficial, please let us know. If there is sufficient interest, we will consider creating such a group.

Facebook Groups

This means that unless you are a member of this group, you cannot see any posts, who is or is not a member of this group, or see that the group itself even exists. Joining this group, or posts that are made in the group do not appear on your wall nor on the news feed of anyone who is not already a member. We recognize how important your privacy and confidentiality are as you begin to address these issues and as you make connections with others in the North Star community.

Given the personal nature of Facebook and the amount of vulnerability involved, to join any of our Facebook group it is required that you use your real name and identity. Profiles set up under pseudonyms are NOT allowed in our Facebook groups.

If anonymity is a concern for you, pseudonyms are allowed in our Email Groups.

The registration process for joining our Facebook groups is comprised of the following:

  • Read and agree to abide by our Rules and Obligations of Membership. These rules are in place for a reason and will be carefully and respectfully enforced throughout your interaction in the group. Please read them closely.
  • Enter your name, age, primary email address, city and state of residence, a brief description of your circumstances, and why you would like to join the group.
  • For private Facebook groups, settings allow you to be invited only by a friend. Thus, one of our moderators will temporarily add you as a Friend, in order to officially add you to the group.
