The Church Life App

Our people are the heart and soul of St. John the Divine. That’s why we use a trusted, secure, cloud-based church management software system from ACS Technologies, called Church Life to maintain member information. Over the past several years, you have been able to access this information through the Church Life mobile app. ACS has announced that at some point in the near future, they will no longer be updating the Church Life app and it will no longer be available for download in the Apple app store. It is no longer available for download via the Google Play store. Moving forward, you have two options to continue to access Church Life information online.

You can keep the Church Life app on your phone
Anyone who downloads the Church Life app will be able to continue to use it as their primary member portal. If you already have the Church Life app on your phone, it will not go away, and you can continue to log in with your Church Life login.

You can access Church Life on your phone through the SJD App
You can also now access a portal to Church Life through the SJD app. Simply download and open the SJD app to log into the Church Life portal. The SJD app portal version of Church Life offers the same access to the SJD directory and online giving but has the following limitations:

  • You cannot take group attendance.
  • You cannot save contact information directly to your phone.

If these functions are important to you, we encourage you to download the Church Life app from the Apple Store as soon as possible. The app is no longer available for download in the Google Play store.

If you need assistance logging into either the Church Life app or the online portal in the SJD App, please contact Parish Records Coordinator Stephanie Cocke.
