Church Center Instructions


Church Center is our online and smartphone portal for SBC's church family. With Church Center, we have a place to learn about all the events going on in a given week, to connect with our small groups, check in to kid's ministry, give online, and organize our volunteer service at church.

Church Center can be accessed through either our web portal or through the mobile app. Here are instructions on setting up and using the Church Center app on your phone.

Step 1: Download and Install the Church Center App

  1. Search your app store for “Church Center” or go to the Android or iOS app link.
  2. Download and install the app
  3. Run the app and click on “Get Started”
  4. Allow Church Center to find our church. To do so, either:
    1. Allow it to access your location & click “Stafford Baptist Church”
    2. Search for our church by entering “Stafford Baptist Church” and use the zip code “22554”
  5. Click on the SBC church logo and select “This is my church”
  6. Enter your phone number. Use the phone number you have provided us for the church directory, and one that allows text messaging.
  7. Church Center will text you a login code. Enter the login code in the app to continue to set up your password.
  8. Click on your user profile to log in. You may optionally set up fingerprint scanning to login faster.
  9. That’s it! You are all set up. From this point on, you should be logged in and you won’t need to perform these steps again.

Step 2: Using the Church Center App

We have set up multiple features for SBC within Church Center, and more are to come. Most features are found using the bottom navigation menu bar.
