Changing to Breeze

For about the last seven years or so, our church has been using Church Community Builder as our church management software option. Our annual contract is up for renewal soon, and we have decided to switch to a new company.

 

Church management software helps churches keep track of their people. That’s it in a nutshell. These days, it is also a way for people in the church to log in online and add information, update it, or search for a phone number or a name of someone they need to contact. You can even use it to set up a one-time or recurring donation.

 

As an example, our elders use it to manage their shepherd lists. We also use it to track giving for your year-end tax statement. That information is strictly confidential and not viewable by the congregation at large. No worries!

 

Some of you here have used CCB, and yes, there may be a small learning curve as we change to a company called Breeze. However, a large part of why we changed was the complexity of CCB. Our first impressions using Breeze is that it lives up to its name.

 

If you had set up regular giving by ACH type payments, we will need to get you switched over. We expect this to go pretty smoothly. Another advantage to Breeze is that it will save the church a pretty good amount of money. That’s not a bad thing.

 

We may have some updates for you on this, but we expect the change to be finished by the end of July. You will be getting an email inviting you to create an account with Breeze so you can log in. Please don’t mark that as spam. If at all possible, we’d love to see you set up an account to strengthen your connection here at Grace.
