Q: Will my name be in the church directory if I am not registered with inFellowship?
A: NO. You have to have an inFellowship account and check the box to be added to the church directory. If you do not have an inFellowship account you can not access the church directory either.
Q: If I don’t have/sign-up with this new inFellowship, how will the church communicate with me?
A: Nothing has changed. You will still be called, you will still receive letters and communications like you have in the past. Remember, this is only a tool to help communicate. If you do not choose to use it. Nothing will change for you in your experience at Second Baptist.
Q: We only have one email address, can we use our one email for both spouses?
A: No. Each member with the exception of minors will need a separate email address to access their separate accounts. If you do not have another email account you will need to obtain one, on your own, using Outlook.com, Gmail, or Yahoo. Each person has a record and each record has a family. When you sign-up with your separate accounts you are grouped into your family automatically. If you are single, you are the head of your house.
Q: How to I get to the online directory?
A: To see the directory, login or create an account in InFellowship. From the home page of your account select YOUR GROUPS, select CHURCH DIRECTORY and click on the tab that says ROSTER and you’re there.
Q: Why do I have to give my birthdate when I register?
A: It helps us identify that it’s really you, prevents the creation of a duplicate record and helps us comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Act.
Q: I don’t have an e-mail address, can I still register for an account?
A: Not at this time. Program developers are working on changing this.
Q: I registered for an account and my wife also tried to but it told her that the e-mail address was already used. We share an e-mail address, how does she register too?
A: Unfortunately our database program requires each individual to have a unique log-in. Your e-mail address is what identifies you as a ‘unique person’ – kind of like your social security #. This is the same requirement of financial institutions or any place online that requires you to create a user account.
Q: Can I call the office and have you create an account for me?
A: Internet Privacy Rules do not allow us to register for you. Your log-in information should be private as it allows you to access your online giving records. If you don’t have access to a computer and need assistance, you can come to the office and one of our admin staff can assist and walk you through it.
Q: I have followed the instructions and I can’t log in, who do I contact?
A: Call the Church office (417-887-3111) or e-mail us at email@example.com.
Q: Can anyone view my information if I register?
A: ONLY people in our congregation who have the status of member or attendee in our database can view the directory. Visitors and the general public cannot access the directory.
Q: I am a member and I created an account but I can’t see my ABF/Life group or the directory.
A: It’s important to create your account with the same e-mail address we have in our database. If you register and use a different e-mail address, our database will not recognize that it’s you and create a duplicate record. Please send an e-mail to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will merge the records together and then you will be able to view your groups and opt-in to the directory.
Q: I don’t do anything online and probably won’t create an account, but I want to be able to reach other people in the church, can you just print me a hard copy of the directory?
A: We purposely moved towards a web based database that will give our congregation the easiest and most efficient way to access this information and reduce paper costs. If you do not have access to or use a computer—please call the church office so we can help you!
Note: If your status in our database is not set to either member or attendee, or we do not have a complete record of information on you; you won’t be able to view or opt-in to the directory. If you need assistance please email us at email@example.com or call us at 417-887-3111.
