Want to skip these instructions and go straight to the video tutorial?

Step 1

Install the App

1. Open your phone’s application installation icon. On an iOS device tap on the App Store, or Google Play for an Android device.

2. In the search area (looking glass), type “Church Center” and tap the search button. Find the blue and green icon. Tap on it to select it, then tap “get” or “install” and your phone will automatically begin the free download.

Step 2

Add Vancouver Church

1. Once the app is installed, open it. It will ask you to identify your church.

2. Find Vancouver Church by zip code: 98665. Look for our black and white VC logo.

3. Tap the logo to confirm “this is my church.”

Step 3

Add Your Profile

1. Once you confirm your church, it will say “Welcome to Vancouver Church!” Tap “next” and enter your cell phone number.

2. You will receive a text message with a verification code. When you receive it, enter the code and tap “next.”

3. If you are already a part of our church database, you will be welcomed by name! If your number is associated with multiple accounts, choose your name and tap “continue.” (If you are not already a part of the database, you can create a new church profile.)

4. Follow the instructions on your phone until your profile is complete.

Step 4

First Time Log-In

1. After you add or create your personal profile, you may be given the option to enable fingerprint or face identification for safety. This is optional.

2. Next, you will be asked if you would like to see notifications. We recommend selecting “yes” so you don’t miss important church announcements.

3. From now on when you open the Church Center App, it will automatically know who you are and that you are a part of Vancouver Church. You will always go straight to the home screen.

Step 5

Update Your Profile

1. From the home screen, you will see a circle icon in the upper right corner. Tap it to view your current profile.

2. Add or update your profile picture, address and phone number, and identify family members.

3. Return to the home page using the back arrow in the upper left corner.
