All St. Martin’s members are welcome to use our Church Management System, Breeze.

With Breeze you can see and manage…

  • Giving history
  • Online donations & contributions
  • Church events
  • Online church directory with contact information, address and photos

Through Breeze, we’ll implement text-to-give to make giving simpler, using a bank account, credit card or debit card. You’ll be able to set up recurring gifts and make one-time gifts. It will all be at your fingertips!

What motivated us to use Breeze?
Our Vestry’s Stewardship Committee saw the need for our church to embrace online giving to supplement traditional giving of cash and check, and on September 16, the Vestry approved our church’s transition to Breeze. Breeze will replace the member and contribution management system we have used since the early 2000’s.
What this means for you
Breeze lets us do new things without giving up any of the things we’ve been doing.

If you prefer to lookup phone numbers on a paper list, or write checks, or give with cash, and do not wish to use Breeze, please carry on with what you’re comfortable doing. Consider Breeze a new online member tool you can use if you wish!

What can Breeze can do?

1. Breeze can connect our members to each other

Church is better when we know each other, right? Member and family photos and contact information are in Breeze – things we currently have separately, in a paper contact list and a photo directory. Help us make that better! We’ve operated a long time with the concept of a “home phone” and a single “household email.” Times have changed and the tools many use are a personal mobile phone and a personal email – so we need your member contact updates. Add photos so we know who you are – church is friendlier when we have names and faces together! Our next photo directory can be done with Breeze if you help us with your photos. Breeze online and in the app has membership at your fingertips.

As we get started with Breeze, we ask that you create a member account and update your personal and family information. If you haven’t received an email invitation with the subject, “Create Your St. Martin-in-the-Fields Episcopal Church Account,” let us know, and we will send your invitation. We’ll need your email address to match a member record in Breeze. If you need an invitation or help using Breeze, contact one of these helpful people:

  • Anika Rinker – available weekdays in the church office; 817-431-2396, stmartin@stmartininthefields.org
  • Susan Kleinwechter – 817-319-1762 (mobile), susan.kleinwechter@stmartininthefields.org

2. Breeze offers additional, new ways to financially support the mission of our church

If you scramble out of the house with just your phone and credit card, don’t carry cash, don’t know where your checkbook is, or have your ACH number memorized – and you want to give at our church – now you can.

Our text-to-give number is 817-270-6880. You can also find it each week in our worship bulletin. We will occasionally announce text-to-give opportunities. We are starting with a small number of funds in 2018, and here are the keywords:

  • “pledge” for your 2018 pledge
  • “match” for our Matching Gift Challenge
  • “help” for the Belevolence Fund which our clergy use to help members in need

You can give online, too. We will soon include that capability on our website, much like this photo:

3. Breeze can show you what’s going on at church

What’s happening this week? Next Sunday? Breeze can show you our church calendar.
Be patient, events take about 10 seconds to load.

  • Check in
