Welcome to Planning Center Services
Planning Center Services (PCS) is a tool and service that allows all members of a ministry to know the flow of the night and be prepared to serve. We use PCS to help you, as a leader, know exactly what is happening each night. Every week, I will be sending out a serve request, where you will tell me if you can or cannot make a service, and this is where I'll give some details about the weekly message, and what I want you guys to focus on during small groups. You can also see the breakdown of the night via the app.
Below is a quick walk through of the mobile app so that you can be confident and comfortable with the app.
STEP 1: RECEIVE SIGN-UP E-MAIL
You should have received an e-mail, asking you to sign up for planning center. If you serve somewhere at South Side, you should have already received an e-mail and login credentials.
STEP 2: DOWNLOAD THE APP FROM YOUR APP STORE
Go to your app store and search, "Planning Center" and download the app or click the links below. If you choose to not have the app, you may use your mobile (or desktop) browser.
*Note, if you have a Windows phone, there is not app. You will have to go to www.planningcenteronline.com and login. Once you do, your screen will look the same, if not similar, to the mobile app.
STEP 3: LOG IN
Enter your e-mail and password. If you don't remember, click "Need a Password?" It will help you log in.
STEP 4: FIND THE DATE OF THE NIGHT
This is where all of the information can be found for the given night. You can find it in either "My Schedule" or by scrolling down to "Student Ministry."
STEP 5: VIEW THE NIGHT
You then click on the "Order of Service" to view the night set up, what games will be played, when those games start, the worship set, and if there is anything different than our normal night schedule.
