3 reviewers had the following to say about Church Social's pricing:
Excellent. Easy to learn for all ages and a pleasure to work with. Very easy to get started and very little overhead.
Ease of use and value for money. Our church was searching for a solution to manage its web presence, membership nd communication internally and to the congregation. We had gone the customs route which for the effort was a mistake. Dont waste your time with custom - get Church Social and move on to more important priorities.
None, even the price is low. Remarkable.

Church Social was put in place for our church (~375 members) two years ago primarily to solve the multiple spreadsheet issue that was our membership statistics. Our elders and deacons were unaware of basic information such as member milestones, names of children, family relationships, etc. As the new statistician, I wanted to solve this issue. I trialed a few other high rated tools including Servant Keeper, but found these tools focused more on overall Church management, something we already had well in hand. Church Social appealed to us as not trying to be everything to everyone, but working hard to enhance member to member communication, and at the same time make member management easier! Church Social solved the spreadsheet problem and added the benefits of an online secure mobile friendly member directory that is used by many members of our congregation. Visiting a family? Click the address and open up your default map application to get there. Whose birthdays are coming up? Pop in the app and check. Usher schedule? Build it and setup email reminders. Elders, deacons, and members can quickly email the whole congregation or select groups. Bible study resources, bulletins, and sermons can be stored within the app for easy retrieval. While we have not used it yet, Church social offers WordPress integration of calendar and sermon modules for items deemed public.
Ease of use, security, built as a member directory, excellent mobile interface, powerful reporting, full member download available (not locked in), flexible pricing.
Very little. They are always working hard to add new features based on customer needs. One feature I'm waiting for is to save my custom reports. It's not a big dealt though, as they are easy to create!

Overall I recommend this to get your church involved and motivated to stay socially connected.
Church Social is a great way to involve everyone in the church including the youth and older children in managing the social events happening at your church. We use this as the main calendar despite having other programs. This one allows us to track small group gatherings, youth events, and even birthdays for the congregation. It really gets people to "socialize".
The system is a bit price but nothing crazy. Customer service is not always helpful but they are pleasant.
