FAQs:

Who can see my profile information?

Only part of your profile (what you can see of others is what they can see of you) is viewable by everyone with log-on to this site. The Office and Clergy and Congregational Care Chair can see all of your profile information.

Who can see my pledging/giving to the church?

Only the Treasurer (Lucy Strasburg), Financial Secretary (Harley King) and Site Admins (Linda Anderson, and Tege Phillips) have access to this information.

People who have left the church or have died are not shown in Breeze. Do you retain their information?

Indeed we do. The Clergy and Office can see everyone, including visitors and folks who have asked to receive the eWeekly and those who have moved or died.

Can I add to the Calendar?

No, only the office can add to the Calendar. You can view the calendar to find when and where an event is scheduled or where there may be conflicts to an event you are planning. When you have determined when & where you wish to have an event, email the office to set up the calendar. Let the office know if it is a recurring event (every 3rd Thursday, e.g.).

Can I create a Group/Tag?

No, but you can notify the office of a Group you would like to create with the names of those to be in it. And you can email the members of your Neighborhood Group or contacts for the various ministry teams or Council!
