The Church Life smart phone application is a very useful app that provides access to a subset of information in Access ACS: see columns 4 and 5 in the table above. Before you can use Church Life you must download the free app. If you need instructions on how to download, below you will find links to videos that outline how to download Church Life app on your Apple or Android phone.
- Android: Click Here (1.5 mins)
- Apple iphone: Click Here (1.5 mins)
- Blackberry and other mobile devices can enter www.churchlife.mobi from any mobile browser. It would be better to just log into Access ACS with your mobile browser as we outline in a previous sub-section. Logging in through the browser gives you access to more information.
You can now login to the Church Life app using your email and password. After you enter them the first time the app will remember them unless you have to reboot your smartphone (you have to reenter them after a reboot sometimes). The first time you log into the system it might asked for FPC site number; you would enter 90041. Do the following:
