Welcome to Church Center!

Updated on:

Church Center is a mobile app and web experience where your congregation can explore, engage, and get involved throughout the week. 

Church Center allows your church members to manage their profile information, donations, events they've registered for, and groups they attend or lead.  They can also view a church calendar or directory and fill out forms.

In addition to the built-in functionality of Church Center, you can make it your own and connect with your congregation in unique ways by creating your own custom content with Planning Center Publishing.

Key Concepts

Church Center is not a standalone product. It is the public-facing interface to the Planning Center People, Groups, Giving, Registrations, Calendar, and Check-ins products that you are subscribed to.

  • Church Center web provides your congregation access to your church's directory, groups, registrations, donation form, and church calendar.
  • Church Center app has the same functionality as the web version, plus access to Check-Ins. The app can be downloaded for free to an iOS or Android device.
  • Navigation is how people will get around the mobile app or website.
  • Profiles hold people's contact information, directory settings, and giving information. They can also see their groups and event registrations.
