Church Center allows your church members to donate to your church, get church information, and manage their profile. Church Center is included with the cost of your product subscriptions, so it's available at no extra cost to you! Your congregation can access Church Center from both your church giving site and the Church Center app for iOS or Android.
You also have the option to use Publishing to set up Church Center web and app. With Publishing, you have the option to add additional custom pages, host live sermon streams, and create a library of videos from previous services.
Setting up Church Center
From the Church Center tab on the Organization page, check the boxes to enable any products that you subscribe to.
Enable Church Center web by creating a unique churchcenter.com URL for your church.
Using Church Center Web
From the Giving page, your donors can give online and log in to view and update their personal giving information.
For security reasons, we don't recommend using Church Center as a donation kiosk in your church. If a donor logs in to donate and forgets to log out, the next person at the kiosk would be able to access their personal giving profile information. Your donors have the ability to give via their smartphone, tablet, or personal computer, which is more private, secure, and simple (especially for regular donors).
The following video gives an overview of the online giving process. Feel free to download and share this video with your church.
