What are Groups?

A Group is what FellowshipOne calls any collection of people that come together at the church on a regular basis. At VHUMC, each of our committees, governing bodies, small group ministries, and ongoing adult programs is a Group.

  • Groups have leaders and members.
    • Group leaders and members can see who belongs to their group.
    • Group leaders and members can send e-mail to everyone in the group or a subset of the group.
    • Group leaders can add and invite people to the group, keeping the group roster up-to-date without relying on the church office.

As an individual you can search for groups that are of interest to you and make requests to join those groups.

Use “Find a Group” and follow the instructions to search for a group and contact the leader. You should receive a response shortly.

If you are having trouble finding a particular group, choose -any- in search categories and scroll through the list.

How do I upload a picture to my profile?

Adding a photo helps us all get to know each other more easily.

  1. Log in to your FellowshipOne account.
  2. Select “Update Profile”
  3. Under the Actions on the the right, select “Update Your Profile”
  4. Find your name in the upper left corner of the page.
    • To the left of your First Name is a photo or default picture. Click change.

  6. Select the photo to add.
  7. At the bottom of the screen select “Save changes”. (Your picture will not display in Fellowship One until you save changes.)
Why do you need my birth date?

There are a few reasons:

  1. FellowshipOne uses it as an identifier. It helps to distinguish between people with the same name and address.
  2. You will be asked for your birthday if you forget your username and password. It is used as a security precaution to protect your account.
  3. Knowing your life stage helps us make sure you get information that is helpful to you.
  4. Certain events are adult only, so birth date prevents children from registering
  5. Only children 13 and older are permitted to create a FellowshipOne Account.
Will my information be given to any third parties?

NO! Your information is held securely by the FellowshipOne system. Neither FellowshipOne, nor VHUMC, will share your information with a third party.

Who should I contact if I have any additional questions?

Please send an email info@vhumc.org and someone from the church database team will be happy to answer questions or offer assistance.
