What is Church Center & Planning Center?

Church Center is linked to our new Church Management Software, Planning Center. It’s the new place where you can register for events, securely give online, and access the Church Directory and Calendar. You can conveniently use Church Center through a phone app or web browser.

Here are a few steps to get you setup:

1. Choose your preferred link: 

iPhone App

Non-iPhone (Android/Google) App Website

2. Follow the instructions to login 

Note: if you have been apart of our online directory or currently serve in a ministry then your phone number or email address is most likely on file already.

3. Please make sure old or missing account info is updated. And we would be grateful if you could also upload a picture of yourself – thank you! 

And you are now setup…it’s that easy! You are now able to register for events and give online. We have included a few tutorial videos below to help you get started. And we are always available if you have further questions or need help. Contact the Church Office if you need support.
