We wanted to take a moment to wish you a joyful and Christ-centered Christmas. When you are called to shepherd a meaningful Christmas for others (in whatever capacity you serve), it is often a challenge to slow down enough to hear what the Spirit has to say to you. Our prayer for you is that you and your team experience the same meaning of Christmas that you help bring to others.
Serving with you,

This evening we updated the WorshipPlanning.com site with a couple small, but helpful changes. But before I get to those, I wanted to provide some information for iPhone/iPod users that have upgraded their OS to version 4.2. It seems there is a problem with the current version of the WP app and this new OS version. Users were reporting that they could not get their assignments or even get logged in to the app correctly. We have resolved the issue (it was very minor) and submitted the update to Apple’s App Store review team. Our hope is that approval will be forthcoming within a few days.
The two updates we made to the website are both on the People Scheduling page. First, we’ve added a “drop indicator” that pops up as you drag a person, role, or template over the service column. Hopefully this will make it very clear what action will take place when you are about to schedule someone to serve. We’ve create a short video of how this works. Feel free to check it out.
The second update is helpful for those that schedule people for master and linked services. No longer will you have to click “yes” or “no” to tell WP you want the assignment applied to the linked service also. WP will remember your setting, and you can change it at any time in your Teams Settings tab.
Here’s an insightful video by Bob Kauflin discussing singing in the church. He starts out by saying, “Singing is risky business. Singing for Christians is risky.”
