Putting together a worship service shouldn’t feel like a circus. If you're juggling music prep, volunteer scheduling, or service planning, Planning Center has apps made just for you.
Plan your music sets with ease
There are a lot of worship songs out there! Planning Center Services helps you organize the songs you use, so you can easily find all your fast worship choruses in G that you haven’t done in 3 months. Plus it transposes chord charts and even audio files so your teams can rehearse in the right key.
Get Your Musicians to Rehearse
With Planning Center Services, your team can access any file they need for rehearsing. Use the media player from our mobile apps to listen to music in the car and print chord charts from a computer. Or use the add-on Planning Center Music Stand app on tablets to turn pages with a foot pedal and take notes.
Simplify team scheduling
If you have a bigger team, assembling your volunteer roster can be complicated. Planning Center Services makes scheduling your band, vocals, tech, or any other team simple. View your list of guitarists, choose one with no scheduling conflicts, and email or text them a scheduling request.
Be available 24/7, even when you’re not
Why does your phone always ring on your way home from church or during dinner? Planning Center Services is there for your team even when you can’t be. It can block out dates, accept or decline scheduling requests, check call times, and access files any time; the internet doesn’t even blink!
Collaborate seamlessly without even trying
Whether you’re on staff or help plan services in your spare time, other members of your team need to be in the know. With Planning Center Services, there’s always one place anyone can go to get the latest information. Multiple people can plan or schedule simultaneously, and it updates live for everyone else.
Get correct lyrics on the screens
Why is it so hard to display the right lyrics? Planning Center Projector for iPad and iPhone is an add-on that gets your order of service and lyrics right from Planning Center Services and projects them wirelessly to your screens with videos or Powerpoints; just swipe to advance. And when you fix a typo in the chord chart, your slides are automatically updated.
Keep attendance records for your choir
Even if your choir members confirm, somehow they don’t always show up. Use Planning Center Services to schedule them and get them their music, and then use Planning Center Check-Ins on a kiosk to check them in for rehearsal and services. Use attendance reports to see who’s often missing, so you can follow up.
Care for your team members
Organization and planning are only parts of leading a great team. Planning Center People helps you give the personal touch. See who’s a member, if they’ve been baptised, what events they’ve registered for or checked into, or any custom data you set up. Powerful filtering helps you find people and track all communications with them.
