You have two different options when it comes to managing your Church Center site. If you're not sure whether you should use Publishing or stick with the basic version of Church Center, this is the article for you!
What can I do with both platforms?
Both basic Church Center and Publishing allow you to:
- Use the built-in features of Church Center to allow people to donate online, join groups, register for events, fill out forms, and access your church directory and calendar.
- Link to specific Church Center pages from your main church website.
- Offer both the web and mobile app capabilities of Church Center to your congregation.
- Use Church Center for free! Publishing has some paid options, but you can also use Publishing at the free level, if that's all you need.
