When a group is set to be visible to the App, it will appear in a list of Groups - this is like a group finder.
Users will need to log into the Church App to view Groups.
Users can view Groups they are a member of.
Users can view all groups and search for groups.
Each group will have one of the following attributes:
Public - anyone can join (default)
Private - user would request to join
In this case, a notification is sent through the app to the group leader requesting permission to join, a leader can approve or deny a request. If approved, members will receive a notification saying they have been added to the group.
