Welcome to Church Community Builder (CCB)!
CCB is an online tool that serves as an Online Community for the church, providing ways to improve communication and connection between you and others in the church as well as between you and the church office.
Frequently Asked Questions
WHY DO I USE CCB?
Belonging to a local church and sharing life with others in that setting is the best way to develop a meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ. CCB is an online tool designed to help connect with others in the life of Washington Street UMC (WSUMC). CCB provides you information about people, groups, and volunteer opportunities at WSUMC. It also allows you to view your giving records and update your contact information to make sure you receive important communication from the church.
HOW DO I USE CCB?
One of the best ways to start getting familiar with the system is to check out the Guide to CCB. This guide will give helpful tips for using the system and direct you to some of the most important help videos and articles. Another great way to learn CCB is to login and spend some time browsing around and checking out all the features.
WHO HAS ACCESS TO CCB?
Anyone involved in the life of the church can request to receive a login to CCB. If your email address is in the church database, you will automatically receive an email with a link to activate your account and set your password. (You may want to visit the guide to CCB to learn how to ensure that the activation email shows up in your inbox rather than your junk folder). The basic level of access to CCB will allow you to update your contact information and view your giving history. Most users who are actively involved in church life will also have access to the online church directory. In circumstances where someone is misusing the online community, the church office may restrict or block access to CCB.
IS CCB SECURE?
Church Community Builder works hard to make sure all of your data is secure (CCB statements on security). With CCB, you can control what information you make available to other users of the online community. While it is encouraged to make more of your information available to other members of Washington Street UMC for building community, you are able to opt out of the online directory completely or determine what information in your profile is visible to specific sets of people (See guide to CCB for information on how to control your privacy settings). Furthermore, the church staff is limited to only have access to the information necessary to do their job.
