This morning we released an upgrade to automate important database changes that need to happen when someone is marked as deceased. Usually this comes up because a surviving family member has received a letter, an email, a giving statement or some other communication that includes their deceased loved one's name or other information.
We all know that trust is foundational to successful relationships. It is also foundational to a successful relationship with your database. If you don't trust the data, you don't trust what the data tells you. That's a problem.
As the Andy Williams song (Youtube) tells us, this really is the most wonderful time of the year. But, like everything else in 2020, the pandemic is making us re-think how we do Christmas services and events.
(verse 3) There will be services for reserving and childcare for serving. Families wary to go. Because of scary Covid stories and tales of the gories of viruses long, long ago.

Churchteams was built around the idea of growing a church using groups as the common building material for every ministry. This means that everything that involves more than one person is managed as a group.
Every worship service, small group, class, committee, ministry team, leadership team, service team, mission team, event, and even assimilation step is managed as a group.
This is one of the design constructs that makes our software unique, powerful and user-friendly. Once understood, ministry rocks of all sizes are formed together to become a solidly built organization.
I was so encouraged by this email from Kelly, a church admin assistant, in response to How we help the church be the church.
"Thanks for all of your help during this time. We have had two families already connect using the set-up in Churchteams. One from our church and the other is un-churched. They happen to live right across the street from one another and hooked up after seeing the link on FB. Thank you for all of your help in getting our church ready for serving our community during these difficult times."
