BREEZE: A NEW CHURCH DATABASE
UUCE has a new church database, which we will be rolling out this year – Breeze CHMS!
Breeze CHMS is a Church Management Software which can be accessed through a website or an app.
UUCE is preparing to fully utilize Breeze Church Management Software, as well as slowly transitioning to Google Drive for document storage. We’ve already introduced you to Auctria, which was the program for this year’s UUCE Armchair Auction!
We realize this might cause some TAO (Technology Anxiety Overload)!
Fear not! Help is on the way.
Jeff Jeude, our Church Administrator, will offer helpful support and training to ease you into the possibilities of controlling more of your information with the church office from the comfort of your home or mobile phone.
Wednesday, 9:00-11:00 feel free to call in for one-on-one support.
(Jeff can be reached at: 207-667-4393.)
When Jeff is in the office, you can join on Zoom to learn the basics and get assistance or feel free to drop by the office, mask on, safety protection in place for a hands-on demonstration.
Be sure to call the office first to confirm that Jeff is available.
During your meeting, you will be able to:
Verify your church contact information and committee/group affiliations.
Learn how to register for classes and other events.
Learn how to verify your pledge and giving history and make changes if needed.
Learn how to use the newest online directory to find members and friends.
To register with BREEZE:
When you log in, you’ll have access to three areas:
• Contact & Directory Information -your mailing and email addresses, your phone number and how you would like to be notified of cancellation due to bad weather, etc. as well as your ability to opt in to the church directory.
• Areas of interest – Committees and Small Groups – these may have been supplied from the visitor card or some point in your journey or you can update them now
You can update your contact information and many of the items in your profile, and you can control how much, if any, of your contact information is displayed. Only congregants who have logged in will be able to access our online church database. You can control whether your address, email address, and phone numbers are visible.
• People – Here you can view the names of current UUCE congregants. Contact information may display based on the congregant’s privacy settings.
• Events – Conveniently access the calendar from the church website to see what’s going on without leaving Breeze. If you have any questions about this new software, please contact Jeff Jeude in the church office: email@example.com or 207-667-4393.
