Our Church App

Hello subscribers. I’ve recently found some add on software for our church website (commonly called a plug-in) that includes features like event calendar, bible reading plans,church directory, etc. One especially nice feature is a smart phone app for both Android and iOS (Apple) phones that allows you to use all this stuff on your phone. The screen shot below shows how it looks in the Apple App Store. (Sorry I don’t have an android phone, but you should see something similar.) You can download it and start viewing our content with the app immediately.

When you open the app you are asked to choose a church by entering the church name as shown in the following screen shot.

Screen shop of app – choosing church. Notice you only need to type in Grove to find our church.

Everything is bare bones right now. All the things you can see / do are shown so that you know what’s available, but there’s no substance behind them. See below.

Screen shot of App – Features

All of what is shown is public right now. There is one thing that is not public, but very useful. We have our church directory online! However, you will need to log in to see it. If you tap “Account” is will present you a logon screen. Once logged in you will see your particulars and be able to edit them. When you go back to the home screen, you will notice that a new feature appears – “Address”. If you tap it it will present you with a screen to search for someone.

Explore. Provide feedback via this blog. Things you’d like to see, etc. Any information or questions you don’t want to share publicly, please send them to admin@grovevilleumc.org and I will respond in kind.

Thank you!
