  1. Q: What are the benefits of Registering as a member of our website?
    A: Our goal, with this website, is to connect people with people who are interested in being Disciples of Christ.  Although many of the pages on the website are available to our guests (non-registered visitors), registered members will be able to connect to people and groups within our church and community.  By becoming a registered member, you be able to view and join our Groups, view other Member Profiles, make Friend Requests, see our Serving Schedule (for Acolytes, Lay Leaders, Ushers, etc.), comment on News and Pastor Messages, and more.
     
  2. Q: How to I change my Profile Picture?
    A: After you have logged in, click “Profile” at the top right side of the page. This will display your personal profile.  Click “Add New Picture” which should be over you current Profile Picture.  We recommend that you upload only 200 x 200 pixel pictures as your profile picture.
     
  3. Q: How do I add Friends (that are already members of the site)?
    A: Select the “Members” button from the Navigation Bar.  Select the site member that you would like to add as a Friend.  Select the link in the profile on the left side of the screen.
     
  4. Q: How do I Invite Friends (that are not members of the site) to join the site?
    A: You can Invite your Friends (assuming you know their name and email address) to join us on our website by clicking on the “Invite” link that can be found at various locations throughout the website.  Notable locations: Main Page, under your Name on the left side, in your Personal Profile (called “Invite Friends”), and from any Group Page (called “Invite Members”).
     
  5. Q: How do I add an Event to the Calendar?
    A: At this time, we have decided to restrict the ability to add an Event to the calendar to a certain level of membership (site admins, staff, and some of our leaders).  We will revisit lowering the required membership level required to add an Event at a later date.  If you have an Event that you would like to share, please email the main office at info@fumcphoenixville.org, with the Name of the Event, start/end date and time (if applicable), location of the event (address if not at FUMC), and a description of the event.
     
  6. Q: How do I add a News Item?
    A: At this time, we have also decided to restrict the ability to add items to the Site Blog (which is where News and Pastor Messages are located) to a certain level of membership (site admins, staff, and some of our leaders).  We will revisit lowering the required membership level required to add to the Blog at a later date. If you have a newsworthy item that is not an Event, please email the main office at info@fumcphoenixville.org, with the Title of your news article and the main text of the Article.
     
  7. Q: How do I add a new Group?
    A: As a result of the way Groups are handled via our website service, we would like the FUMC webmaster to create all groups on the site.  If you would like a new Group added, please go to the “Website Team” Group page, and post a reply to the “Website Suggestions” Topic with your new group or other requests.  You could also email the webmaster directly at webmaster@fumcphoenixville.org
