What is Church Center & Planning Center?
Church Center is part of our Church Management Software, Planning Center. It’s the new place where you can check in, give online, register for events, and stay connected with your groups. One of the best features in Church Center is that you can use either a phone app or web browser.
Here are a few steps to get you setup:
1. Choose your preferred link:
2. Follow the instructions to login
If you choose to use the online website, you will need to hit the "log in" button in the top right corner.
Note: if you were in our previous data management system and/or currently serve in a ministry then your phone number and/or email address is most likely on file already.
3. Please make sure any incorrect or missing account info is updated. And we would love it if you could also upload a picture of yourself – thank you!
In the app, click the person silhouette to access your settings. Click on your name at the very top to access and change your contact info. In web-browser mode, you will need to press the silhouette or photo in the top right corner and select "profile". From here, you can see and edit your info.
And you are now setup…it’s that easy! Now you can register for events and stay up to date with your groups. below are a few tutorial videos to help you get started. If you need support, contact the church office.
*Note: it may take a day or two for all of your information to be synchronized with your groups! Thank you for your patience!
How do I update my account information in Planning Center?
Go to https://gocentral.churchcenter.com/home or download the Church Center mobile app. Once you have logged in, you can access your information by touching your picture in the upper right hand corner (App) or by clicking “Profile” (Web).
Why do I have to keep validating my email address to log in? Nothing with my account has changed.
Once you have logged in, as long as you keep your browser open on your desktop you will stay logged in. If you close your browser or shutdown your computer, you will have to login again. The Church Center app will remain logged in until you choose to log out, even if you close the app (can depend on your phone settings).
