Create a Service

Service Types and Plans organize information for any services or events happening at your church.

A Service Type contains related Plans, which usually happen weekly. Service Types also contain Teams and Templates related to its Plans.

A Plan is where you store all the details about a particular service. It can include service times, rehearsal times, the teams you've scheduled for that service, and all the items happening in that service.

Create a Service Type

The first step is to create a Service Type.

Click the gear icon in the upper right corner, and then select Add Service Type.

You are guided through a wizard, which helps you create your first Plan, as well as Teams that you will need for the Service Type.

Once you've walked through the wizard, you'll have your first Plan.

The Order and Teams tabs will be empty until you set up your order of service and schedule your teams.

Plan Times

The Service Times that you added when you created your first plan are listed under Times.


If you can't see the times that were just added, it's because you are not assigned to those times. Click Show times for other teams to see all of the times.

Click Add to add additional times, such as Rehearsal Times and Other Times.

Add time information, search for the teams that should be assigned to this time, and set up optional automated reminders for each time.

You can also create additional plans for a Service Type and set up additional Service Types. Once you've created multiple Service types, create a Folder to contain the Service Types.

Next: Schedule your teams!
