Online Directory HowTo

Are you a regular attender or member? Learn how to connect to our Church Center app or website to activate your view of our Directory. Then learn how to select what information of yours others see.

It's private.

It's totally your choice what you share or if you share at all.

If you choose not to you're still allowed to view.

How Do I Get Started?

We’ll send an email to your email address we have on record for you in Planning Center Online, our church management software.

Click the ‘Join Directory’ button in the email and you'll be directed to Church Center. On your computer a new login web page will be opened. On your smart device (phone or tablet) you'll be directed to download the Church Center application or, if you already have it, it will open to the login page.

Didn't get an invitation in email? Check to be sure that it didn't go to your Junk/Spam folder first. Be sure to indicate to your email program that it's not junk and add the email address to your contacts. If you still don't have one, contact us. We may not have you listed as an active attender and we need to correct that!

Select What's Shown

Next, you’ll select the personal and household information in our database you would like to be visible to others.  By default your name and profile photo are shown along with phone numbers, email addresses, and street addresses. You choose the items you don't wnat shared. You can also select what information is shown for your spouse and children. See below on how to share a Household photo and list of your Household members.

Did you select the wrong information to show or hide? Go back and change your privacy preferences for your contact and household information at any time.

Later, you can add new profile information or correct it. Just look in the upper-right corner of the page for a round icon that might have you picture in it. Clicking/tapping that opens your Account. Click/tap your name and you can Edit your profile by adding or modifying phone numbers, email addresses, street addresses, and other personal information. Encourage your spouse to edit their profile as well or do that for them. You'll want to verify what we have for your children.

View The Directory (Browser)

When you click Directory at the top of the page in the website you'll see a list sorted by people's first name. You can chose to sort that by last name or to view by Household. You can grab photos from your computer of your individual household members as well as an image of the entire household! They'll only be added if you want them.

View The Directory (smart Device)

When you click the Directory tab at the bottom of a smart device, you'll see a similar view. Just like in the website, you'll see a list sorted by people's first name. You can chose to sort that by last name or to view by Household. You can grab photos from your smart device of your individual household members as well as an image of the entire household! They'll only be added if you want them.

Household View

When you're making your choices for what's shown to others, you can also choose to add an image of your family to this view. You choose this when you first open the Directory. When your Household's image is clicked you see the name of your Household, your Household's image, if set, and if you choose to, an image and information about children in your HouseHold.


You choose.
