Florence Christian Church is using a new membership database called Breeze that is fully accessible to the entire congregation. It claims to be the “world’s easiest web-based church management software.” Using Breeze, members and friends can find phone numbers, addresses and email addresses for the entire congregation on their smartphones or home computers. Also, registered users can update their own contact information when necessary and check their contribution records. This new system makes managing a growing and changing church community as dynamic as its people are!
There are many features in Breeze that make managing our contact and contribution data easier. This new system includes quick check-in for our nursery and children’s programs. The children’s teachers will have handy access to all special considerations that have been documented for each child and can text parents attending worship with questions or concerns. Staff and church leaders can stay connected by email or text to their elder, deacon and faith groups. Also, outreach and other committees can communicate to the entire congregation or just a few select individuals, depending upon their needs. Breeze also allows for an updated online giving portal and giving-by-text feature. As all these options become available, we will offer training and assistance so that everyone can get on board with this great technology upgrade.
The first step is for interested individuals to contact the church office: [email protected]encechristian.org. Melissa will set up your profile and send you login credentials. You will also receive an introductory instruction sheet so that you can get started. As Breeze claims to be the “world’s easiest” database, it really is very user friendly. A little bit of looking around will quickly acclimate users and you will see the benefit of having all this information at your fingertips (or mouse tip).
