A crew of Los Altos UMC staff and volunteers have been working hard to change our electronic membership database system to better support our ministries. The switch to the new system was officially made on June 1, although it will take a while to fully implement and integrate all of the new tools available to us.
One new tool is an online portal being integrated into our website. The portal shows upcoming events, active groups, opportunities to serve, and more. (Some of these areas will take a few more months to be fully updated.) If you create a user account, you can also see personal information such as events and groups you are signed up for, your giving history, and a church directory. If it looks like any of your personal information is wrong, contact Membership Services Assistant Kyle Aiken-Forderer (650-948-1083 x121). If you are a group host or church event planner, watch for more information on how the new database system will help you.
The transition team continues to tweak and improve all of the processes and applications involving our new database. If you have any questions, contact Project Manager Lisa Shemwell (650-575-7807).
