Over the past years and months, we have been trying to find a way to keep all of the historical and current CGS information in one easily accessible and usable place. Not just because our partnership with the ELCA requires it, but so that we can understand our community as it grows and changes. We're excited to announce that we've found a helpful tool in Breeze.
Right now, the most fun part is that this system gives you (yes, you) a CGS picture directory on your computer or smart phone which you can access from anywhere that you have an internet connection.
Did you forget the name of that person sitting in the same pew as you? Pull up the picture directory on your smart phone and scroll through the pictures until you find their name.
Do you want to send a birthday card to the four people who stood up in worship on birthday Sunday? Pull up the directory at home and there you have their face, their name, their birthday, and their address.
There is so much more to this new tool that will help our community to stay connected to one another as our busy lives take us in a million directions. But the foundation of this working for us (and not against us) is having you input and update your information. Michael Flanagin has volunteered to set up and administer this database for us and he would like to help you gain access.
If you are interested in using Breeze along with us, you can meet with Michael during coffee hour on June 10th and 24th. He can answer your questions about privacy, login, and options (including putting yourself on the "do not text" list) and get you all set up. If you are unable to be with him on either of those days, you can email Michael and he will meet with you one on one to get set up.
If you are not interested in engaging with this new tool, but would like to take this opportunity to make sure that all your information is up to date, please email Michael at the address above or call the church office (408-266-8022) where Laura can also update your information for you.
