Greenmonte App Now Available
Dear Greenmonte,
We're excited to announce that the Greenmonte app is now available in the App Store and Google Play! We developed this for you as a new and convenient way that you can stay connected with Greenmonte from your phone or device. You can listen to sermons and take notes, read or listen to the Bible as well as our Story reading plan, get the latest church news, access our calendar, sign up for groups and events, give to Greenmonte from your phone, and more. You can also opt in to receive notifications, which will give you updates on upcoming services and events.

In addition to the new app, our website has been re-designed from the ground up. We wanted to make things more simple, clear, and easier for you to stay connected with us. Our new Giving system is secure and integrates right inside the app as well as the website.

Our hope is that these new developments in our communications will bless and encourage you in your everyday life, helping you stay connected with our church body and with God's Word throughout the week. If you have any questions about the app or need help getting started, feel free to reach out to me.

-Kristin Donohue
Administrative Assistant
