HOW TO GET THE NEW CUMC “CHURCH APP"
Emily has been working hard to get the new church website up and running. There are a lot of great new features... one of which is the "Church App". Here are her step-by-step instructions on how to install the app to your smart device.
*Please note there might be some differences with iPhones, Androids, etc…If you are having any trouble please feel free to connect with Emily Wise at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 1: Go into your app store
Step 2: Click on the search button on lower righthand side, or a search bar at the top. In search bar type “The Church App”.
Step 3: Download or Install “The Church App, Subsplash Inc.”. The icon has a grey cross in the middle with a white background. After downloading, open the app. (This app is free don’t worry!)
Step 4: Click on the three bars at the top left- hand side of the app (looks like a line sandwich) or a “Let’s Go” button. Click on “search by name” (Again, depends on the type of phone you have.) Click on search and then click on the churches button. This will make it, so you are searching for our church and not just videos from other churches (media). In the search churches bar type in “Community United Methodist Church”. **Click on the icon with a dark blue/purple background with a cross in the middle. ** (Pay attention because there is more than one Community United Methodist Church.)
Step 5: Now you are officially in our CUMC app. You can listen to sermons (past and current), open a Bible (audio available too!), you can give to the church, or see what events are happening this week. If you are in a small group, you can add “push notifications” that will send directly to your phone of any reminders (I will send out a tutorial on how to do that at a later time). You can also get connected with the newsletter and submit prayer requests from your phone.
Please understand this is a work in progress. There will be errors at some point, but as we grow with the app and understand how to use it, it will become easier and greatly beneficial to everyone near and far!
I will be submitting videos and more step-by-step tutorials for the app as the weeks go on so we can grow together with the app. Remember Rome wasn’t built in a day! 😊
