Q: What is ShareFaith.com?
A: ShareFaith.com is a site for people who want to design religious materials, such as church bulletins, Power Point presentations, programs, and more. We provide artwork, images, and templates for virtually any religious material you might need!
When you subscribe to our site for a period of time, you get unlimited access to our art, templates, photos, and motion video for that duration. You may use any downloaded content forever, but when your subscription expires, you will no longer be able to download new materials from our site.
Q: How To Prevent Auto-Renewals
A: To keep your account from auto-renewing, you can simply disable the auto-renewal feature by clicking on the "Disable Auto-renewal" button in your account settings on your MY HOME tab. This tab will only be available to full members. If you are in the free trial, your credit card has not been charge, and you are not a full member.
Q: I can't log into my ShareFaith account. What's wrong?
A: Login problems are usually caused by a variety of simple problems. Here are the top few:
1. Case Sensitivity
Your login (email address) and password are case sensitive. You must enter them EXACTLY the same way you did when your account was created. If you suspect that you had a typo in the email address you registered, please e-mail us at Login@ShareFaith.com. If there was a typo in the password you entered, see #2 below. If both the email address and password you registered contain typos, you must contact us at Login@ShareFaith.com to have the information edited.
2. Wrong Password
If you receive a "Wrong password. Click? for help" message when you try to Login, this means your email address was recognized, but your password was not. This is usually due to a typo in your password, either when you initially registered or when you tried to log in. If you wish to reset your password, click the Forgot Password? button under the Password field when logging in. An e-mail will be sent to your e-mail address containing a temporary password. Enter that temporary password exactly as it is written, not including the quotes around it. You will be prompted to change your password to something personal after you successfully log in.
Like most commercial web sites, our site requires the use of browser "cookies." You must have browser cookies enabled in order to log in. If you do not know how to enable cookies, we would encourage you to contact the manufacturer of the browser, or use a search engine to locate exactly how to enable them (An example of using a search engine to locate the information could be typing "enabling cookies in Internet Explorer" in the search box at Yahoo.com).
4. Old Browsers
We encourage all of our members to have the latest version of their web browser installed, since many older browsers may not be as compatible with our site. If you are using MacOS, our site does not support versions of Netscape Navigator below 6.0. If you are using an earlier version of Netscape, you'll have to upgrade to a newer version, or a different MacOS browser, such as Internet Explorer 7, Apple Safari, or Mozilla Firefox.
One of these suggestions should solve your problem. If none of these suggestions work, please contact Login@ShareFaith.com and provide the details of your login problem.
Q: How To Cancel My Free Trial
A: You can cancel your free trial at any time by clicking on the big, "Cancel Free Trial" button at the top right corner in your MY HOME Tab on Sharefaith. You can also clicking the "Cancel Free Trial" link in the daily emails you receive from Sharefaith. Simply, safe and very easy! If you are afraid that your account will automatically convert into a full membership you can simply use the cancel button to stop conversion.
Q: Will my full subscription to ShareFaith automatically renew?
A: Yes. Your ShareFaith subscription lasts for one year, and your subscription will automatically renew for an additional year by charging the regular renewal subscription fee to your supplied credit or debit card upon expiration of your current subscription. You consented to this feature during your subscription registration.
You will receive a courtesy advanced notice 30 days prior to renewal. Once the payment has been processed, we will send a confirmation e-mail summarizing the charges applied, and you will receive an additional term of access.
If you wish to turn off the automatic renewal entirely, please log into your account and click the link for "Disable Auto Renewal" under the MyHome/Account Info. This will disable the feature and your account will simply expire at the end of the current term.
