VBatchurchJust this morning I was talking with a friend who is incredibly busy with end of the school year activities for his kids.  It's a great time of the year to celebrate, but it's also a season for church staff and families to start planning for summer activities. 

We love helping families connect with opportunities for their kids to enjoy the summer season and grow in their faith.  Vacation bible school, youth camp, family camp, cookouts, 4th of July events, baseball games, and so much more.  Our event registration feature takes the administrative work out of making that connection. 

Here is a detailed Knowledge Base article about how to set up a registration for events like these.  The great thing about our system is that it protects the integrity of your data by capturing unique information for parents separately from unique information for kids and yet connects them relationally as a family unit.  That's a really helpful feature for keeping your data clean.  

Here is a list of 5 other categories of features within our registration system that you may or may not know about.  They have been added and upgraded through the years to match real needs different churches have.
