Check Out Our APPs, There Are Many Options.
We recently updated our mobile app, including our on-line donations system. The third party who supported our old 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.
We have migrated both our mobile app and on-line donation systems to Planning Center, our module-based Church Management Software. You can continue to use your Easytithe donation account if you wish as we know people don’t like change. 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.
All of the modules work using your favorite browser or mobile device. For instance, the Giving module can collect donations whether you are making a one time donation or setting up and managing recurring donations. The Group module allows you to join and connect with your small group. The new app also allows you to register for events thru the Event module, and when we are able to resume our HavenKids Sunday School programs, you will be able to check your child in using the Check-in module vs waiting at the Kiosk.
The new mobile app is called Church Center, and 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 streaming of services, service archives, event registration, small groups, check-in capabilities, prayer requests, weekly announcements and prayer needs, church calendar, and more.
We provided links to the Google Play and Apple App Store below so you can download easily. Once you download the Church Center app follow the Installation Guide to make sure you are logged into your Haven profile. One other thing, our Church Center URL is havencc.churchcenter.com in case you are using a web browser on your computer. Once connected you can manage your giving securely and conveniently using your iOS or Android smart device, as well as, via your web browser. You will also see any donations you have made using Easytithe, PayPal, or via cash/check at church in the past.
