Church Center Directory - Instructions & FAQ

Instructions

Step 1: Find & Open the Email Invitation

Be on the lookout for an email invitation sent from “Merrie Bunt [Epworth United Methodist Church] <no-reply@planningcenteronline.com>” with the subject: “You are invited to join our directory.” If you use Gmail, it will probably be routed to your “updates” or “promotions” tab.

Step 2: Join the Directory

Click the link in that email to “Join Directory.” Follow the prompts to get started and log in. If you don’t want to use your mobile number to log in, you can use your email address instead by clicking the link below the “Next” button.

Step 3: Log in to Church Center and Opt-In to the Directory:

Once you’re logged in, click the link that says “Share it now.”

Step 4: Check the boxes to share your info

Select the information you want to share with other members by checking the boxes. Then click “Join Directory.”

Bonus points: If any of your contact information is incorrect, you can edit your profile by clicking that link. Scroll down and click “Save Changes.” Please note: some fields like name and birthdate are locked. Please contact the church office to make these corrections. Advanced: Upload a photo of yourself!


Step 5: Feedback: Let us know what you think!
