Planning Center is an online system for scheduling team members, organizing services, and streamlining communication. Your church has signed you up, so watch our introduction video or read on to learn how to make the most of your account and know what to expect!

Download Services mobile from your device!

Services Mobile has almost everything you need to manage your schedule or prepare for your service. There are a few small things not yet available from the mobile app that you can still access from the full website on your computer.

Your Online Schedule

When your church is ready, they will send you scheduling request emails with options to Accept or Decline, and you can log in at any time to manage your schedule. One way you can help your church is to log in and block out dates that you know you will be unavailable. If they try to schedule you, they'll see your blockout dates and know you won't be able to serve without even having to ask!

Your Contact Information

The great thing about having your own account is that you can update your email address, password, profile picture, or set up text messaging anytime you want from your profile page.

Service Details & Files

Your church might give you access to view services and related files. If they have uploaded files like chord charts, documents, or mp3s, you'll be able to access them. 

If you are a musician, check out the rehearse button at the top right of each plan to access the media player or to download all chord charts at once. In addition, this video will show you more tips about accessing media and songs from within the mobile app.
