We are in the process of updating our mobile app and on-line giving system to enhance user experience.
The third party who supported our current mobile app is no longer available, and the mobile app provided by our current on-line payment processor (Easytithe) does not provide all the features we are looking to offer mobile device users. So we are migrating both our mobile app and on-line donation systems to Planning Center, our module-based Church Management Software.
The new mobile app is called Church Center and is modular as well. It is available for immediate download from the Apple and Google Play app stores. The app will be expanded overtime, but already includes on-line giving, live stream of services and archives, event registration, small groups, and check-in capabilities.
Once you download the Church Center app using the app store buttons, select Haven Community Church within the app to connect to our church. Our Church Center URL is havencc.churchcenter.com and once connected, you can manage your giving securely and conveniently using your iOS or Android smart device, as well as, via your web browser.
The Planning Center Giving module can collect donations on the web and in the new mobile app (shown to the left). Those donations then get processed by a large, secure payment processing company called Stripe and rapidly transferred to our bank electronically. Stripe payment processing is used by millions of entities world-wide.
Though we hope you convert to the new app quickly, you can continue to use your Easytithe donation account for the remainder of 2020 if you wish. The new system is very secure, and offers lower cost to the church, as well as, many new features. For example, you can now use Apple Pay in addition to bank e-Checks, credit cards, and debit cards. Furthermore, any donations you have made using Easytithe, PayPal, or via cash/check at church in the past have been migrated to the new app for your convenience.
