To create a Planning Center Account:

Living Water is excited to announce we are moving to a much more user friendly giving system:  Planning Center!  We are excited about the options that it is going to provide the church:

  • More flexibility in utilizing the giving system, and updating your giving options.

  • The ability to change your information in the database, such as address, cell phone number or email address

  • Giving options, including your online portal, by downloading the Planning Center app on your Android or iphone, or texting to give.


Here is what we are currently asking of our Living Water Family:

  • Please go to

  • Enter your cell phone number.  A code will be texted to you to log into your account.

  • Enter the six digit code that is texted to you.

  • If you are already set up in the system, it will recognize you?  In my case, there is a “Log in as Emily” button.  If it is you, click that button to log in.  If it isn’t you, click the Not you link to create your account.

  • From here, we would love our Living Water family to click on Profile, and edit any basic information about you that is not correct.  Alternately, please set up your profile for us.

  • You can now set up your giving by clicking the Give button, adding your bank, credit or debit card information, and setting up your giving options.


If you chose to set up your recurring donations in Planning Center, and already have automatic giving set up in ChurchTrac as well, you can stop your ChurchTrac giving by doing the following:

  • Go to

  • Log in to your account using the credentials you set up

  • Toward the bottom of the page, click the link Manage Recurring Credit/Debit.

  • Click the recurring donations you want to stop, and delete


The goal is to have everything transferred over to Planning Center and discontinue our use of ChurchTrac by the end of June at the latest.  We will periodically communicate with those that continue to give through ChurchTrac and ask them to transfer their giving over to Planning Center.  There will be a point where ChurchTrac will be shut down, and your donations will need to be set up in Planning Center if you wish for them to continue.


If you have any questions or need any help with reviewing your profile and setting up donations, do not hesitation to contact Lyn at or 608-834-9899.  She will direct any questions she is not able to answer over to Emily.


Thank you for your patience as we transfer to a new and more exciting system to use!
