Important Update

NEW SYSTEM for giving, check-in and event registration

As our church continues to grow, we are committed to finding new ways of streamlining our processes and systems to make it easier for YOU to be involved here at Storyline.

 

In the past, we have managed all of our contact info and giving in one system, and volunteer scheduling in another! Since this balancing act presented many challenges for both volunteers and leaders, we’ve been researching what it might look like to move to one integrated system for all of our forms, schedules, giving and groups.

We are excited to announce a churchwide move to Planning Center!

We have been working behind the scenes to migrate all of our information from Church Community Builder (CCB) to this new system, and we’re finally ready to invite you into the process.

 

Many of you are familiar with Planning Center from your experience volunteering with one of our serve teams. If that’s the case, your login information will not change—you’ll simply have access to all-new tools like online giving, event registration and more! If you’re new to Planning Center, you’re going to love it, too!

 

There are three areas where Storyliners will probably notice the transition to Planning Center, so we want to give you a heads up.

 

You’ll see changes in:

» Online giving

» Storyland Kids check-in

» Event registration

Download the Church Center app today.

The simplest way for you to interact with our new system is by downloading the Church Center app for your smart phone. In the app, you can manage your giving, browse and RSVP for upcoming events and even check-in your kids on the way to church!

1. giving

You might have noticed that we rarely pass a giving basket in our services. That’s intentional! We want to remove any obstacles for our guests, while still keeping it simple to support the work God is doing at Storyline. If you give by check or cash, you can still do that using one of the silver boxes found in various locations around our lobby.

 

If you have been giving online, we’ll need your help to move from CCB to Planning Center. We’ve included some brief instructions below. If you’ve never given to Storyline, skip ahead to step 2!

Giving on the Church Center App

1. Cancel any recurring gifts.

You’ll need to log in to CCB (storyline.ccbchurch.com) and click the “give” tab on the left side of the page. From there you can manage any existing gifts you may already have set up.

 

2. Set up new gifts in Planning Center.

The simplest way to do this is through the Church Center app for iPhone & Android. Download the app, register or log in, then click the “Give” button in the bottom menu.

 

From this screen you can give a one-time gift or set up a recurring gift (like your Chapter Two pledge). The first time you give, you’ll need to add a payment method. ACH online checking gifts may require an additional verification step.

 

Not a smartphone user? You can set up and manage your giving online at storylinefellowship.churchcenter.com.

2. storyland kids check-in

The biggest change you’ll notice at our Storyland Kids check-in stations is that you’ll now look up your family by phone number instead of searching by last name. No more scrolling through all the other Smiths or Joneses to find your family! You’ll want to log in to Church Center and ensure that we have up-to-date contact info for you. You can even add a current photo to your profile!

 

Want to make Sunday morning even easier?

You can now pre-check your kids using the Church Center app on your way to church! Simply select the kids who will be attending, then scan the barcode at a check-in station when you arrive. Your labels will print instantly, giving you more time to grab a cup of coffee on your way into the service.

3. event registration

Where can you find a list of all our upcoming events and sign up? You guessed it! In the Church Center app. When you’re logged in, sending us an RSVP is a snap! Planning Center allows you to register yourself or any member of your household quickly and easily. You can also find the list of events online here.
