West Haven uses a tool called Church Center (aka Planning Center) which helps us organize information, coordinate events, communicate with volunteers, and connect with our members, regular attenders, and visitors. Church Center also provides a mobile app and web experience where church members can 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.
Notable Features of Church Center
- Children’s Ministry Check-In
Parents/Guardians can check-in their children before they even arrive at West Haven! Upon arrival, parents will scan the pre-check QR Code, the applicable labels will print, and you are done!
- Financial Giving
Of course, you can give in-person at any of our Worship Services. Nonetheless, you can also give electronically by the following means: at our website, via the Church Center mobile app (Apple Pay/Google Pay supported!), and text-to-give.
- Bible Fellowship Classes & Groups
We encourage every member to be a part of a Bible Fellowship Class or Group! These groups can be explored via the Church Center mobile app or on our website! Once you are signed up for a class/group, your group can easily communicate via Church Center!
- Manage Family Profile
We all understand how important accurate and complete information is. Now you can update your family profile right from the Church Center app or online. Of course, you can communicate with the church office, as well.
We love our volunteers! Church Center allows us to schedule our volunteers and helps us avoid volunteer burnout! In the Church Center app, you can view your schedule, contact the ministry leader, add block-out dates (ie. vacation dates when you can’t serve), and set preferences (ie. serve only with spouse and/or serve two times per month).
