Thanks for your patience!
MyGFC is a highly-secure, online tool that allows our church members and attendees to connect with what’s happening at Grace Fellowship.
Through your own online account, you are able to access and update your contact info, manage privacy settings, contact group members, and utilize the church directory. MyGFC is the member portal of our church database, Church Community Builder.
What can I do with my PROFILE?
- Manage Your Information: You can view the information we have on file for you and check it for accuracy. If you change your email address, physical address, or phone number, you can update it yourself online so we always have your current information.
- Manage Privacy Settings: You specify and maintain which pieces of your information can be viewed by others that have opted-in to the MyGFC system.
- View Church Directory: MyGFC is our online church directory. This is where you go to find contact information for those who have opted to do so. Please note that if you have not opted into the online church directory, you will not be able to view it.
- Upload your picture: Your picture is only viewable by those you have established through the privacy settings. It is a great way for others at GFC to recognize who you are. You can also upload a family picture viewable only by church staff. Our pastors and staff love being able to see entire families when praying for you.
What can I do in GROUPS?
- Communicate with group leaders and members: See who is in the groups and serve teams that you are a part of at GFC. Email them or get other contact information for the leaders and other members in the group/team.
- Already involved in a group or on a serve team? Opting-in to the MyGFC system enables your leaders to keep you up-to-date with information, future meetings and other news.
- Searching for groups is done through our church website at graceky.org/groups.

MyGFC Help & FAQ
What if I forgot my email or password?
You can recover your password if you know the email account used. Please contact us if you need to know the email used for your MyGFC account.
Why can't I find someone in the directory?
The directory is an opt-in system, which means that only people who choose to be in the directory can be viewed. This allows everyone to choose their own privacy. You can add yourself to the online directory by going to the privacy settings and checking the “Include me in the church directory” box.
I've created an account and features such has groups, directory, and giving history aren't there.
If the system can’t link your MyGFC account to your database record with the church, you won’t be able to see your information quite yet. These records get linked every few days or you can contact us to have this processed sooner. This assures random website visitors can’t access your information. If this problem persists please send an email to [email protected].
Will my name be in the church directory if I do not register with MyGFC?
No, you must have a MyGFC account and check the box to be included in the church directory. If you do not have a MyGFC account you cannot access the church directory either.
Can anyone view my information if I register?
No, only people in our church who have the status of member or attendee in our database can view the directory.
We only have one email address, can we use one email for multiple family members?
No, each family member will need a separate email address to access their separate accounts.
I have followed the instructions and I can’t log in, who do I contact?
Contact the church office 859.371.7880 or [email protected]
My email address is now connected to my spouse’s MyGFC account. How do I create my own account?
MyGFC only allows an email address to be associated with one person or account. Here are the steps to change an email login:
- Sign-in to the account.
- Select Account in the top right corner.
- Select Change Login/Password
- Enter a new login email. (You may keep the password the same. )
- Sign out.
- Create a new account with your email address.
(Use the “Register” button rather just sign in since you need to create a new account.)
Why does my profile say it’s not 100% complete?
A profile is listed at 100% complete when you enter ALL the fields in under your profile. Don’t worry if you don’t hit 100%!
Create an account?
Go to MyGFC.
Click “Register” in the upper-right corner or “Sign-Up.”
Complete all required fields and click “Create an Account.”
Check the email account you used to create your account. You will receive an activation email that includes a link to activate your account. Click the activation link to complete the process. If you don’t see the email in your Inbox, check your Spam folder.
Update my profile?
To update your profile from your MyGFC page, click on “Update Profile” and you will be taken to your profile overview where you can view your current information, update your profile and privacy settings, or change your email and/or password.
To make changes to your profile, select “Update your profile” on the right side of your profile.
Remember, you have control over every item listed on your profile using your privacy settings. This is set by YOU, the individual, and not by the church database.
All items with an asterisk are required fields and must have a value.
The progress bar feature will let you know whether or not your information is complete. In order to reach 100%, you must include the following information:
- Profile photo
- Date of birth
- Phone (Mobile, Home, and Work)
- Website URL
- Social Networks URL (Facebook, Twitter, or Linked In).
Once you have entered your information, click “Save Changes” at the bottom of the page.

Opt-In/Out of the church directory?
If you decide to opt-in, the church directory will become available and allow you to see and communicate with the people who attend GFC.
Each church attendee must opt-in to the Church Directory. Click “Account” and then “Privacy Settings.” Locate the “Include me in the church directory” option and save your settings. When visiting the directory, you will only see other people who have opted-in.
Additionally, your name may not immediately appear in the directory. In some instances, we may need to manually approve your account before you may access the church directory.
When you opt-in to the directory, your name, city, state, and postal code will be included in the directory by default. Additional information is included based upon how you have set your privacy settings. The Everyone option applies to the church directory specifically.
If you are not granted immediate access to the church directory after opting in, please use the “Contact Us” link at the top of the screen.
Upload my picture?
Yes! Upload a picture that is a close up of your face so that we can get to know you!
From your MyGFC page, select “Update Profile” to upload a profile picture.
Select “Update your profile” on the right side of the page.
Select “Change” on the left under the picture box.
