We invite you all to download the free Solomon's Porch Minneapolis app for your phone! Features of the app include:
- A directory of Covenant Participant contact information
- A calendar of church events, with built-in links to registration forms
- Online giving statements and means to give
- Links to Solomon's Porch resources
- A web portal for updating your own information, among other features
- More, as we figure out how to add new things to the app!
Following are some questions and answers regarding the app that we imagine will be frequently asked.
Where do I find the app?
The app is available in the Apple app store and the Google Play store under the name "Solomon's Porch Minneapolis." There's no version for Windows phones -- sorry!
How do I log in?
When you download and open the app, the first screen you see is the church contact information page. In the upper-left is the navigation menu icon. Touch that to open the app menu.
The last item in the menu is "Login." Touch it and you will be prompted to enter an email address and create your account. You will get a confirmation email and a temporary password. You also have the option of using Facebook or Google to sign in.
I'm having problems logging in.
Email Adam at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will try do his best to help! If you are trying to log in using Facebook or Google, please let him know what email address you have associated with those accounts.
Where is the church directory you mentioned?
You won't see it at first. There's a manual step where someone (right now, Adam C.) goes in and verifies which new logins belong to Covenant Participants. Please give Adam at least 24 hours to do that.
Once your account has been verified, log out and log back in again. If you are a Covenant Participant, "Church Directory" should appear as an option.
My contact information is wrong, or it isn't even there!
The app inherited the last contact information that was in our prior church database. It matches you to that info based on your email address, so if you used a different email to login than what was in the old database, it won't match you to your old contact info at all.
In either case, you can update your information using the app's web portal. This link takes you there, as does the "Your App Web Portal" link in the "Online" menu on this page. In the app itself, the "Your Info" link under "Connect" also takes you there. Log in to the web portal, update your information, and click "Save" at the bottom of the page.
I am a Covenant Participant who doesn't want to be listed in the directory.
No problem -- log in to the web portal and modify the "Include in Directory: Yes/No" option under "Personal Information."
I was looking at my giving statement, and I found some mistakes...
Please let us know! We work hard to get all the giving information accurate in the app, but there are bound to be some errors. Email the office at email@example.com and tell us what looks off.
I have questions that aren't answered here!
We would love to change that! Email Adam at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will do his best to help.
