Calgary Central, the largest of the 14 Seventh-Day Adventist churches in Calgary, is embracing an environment-friendly, economical, and health-wise safer way of reaching out to members and the community with CalgaryCentralSDA app, a church app created by mobile app developer Marshall Technologii.

Mobile app helps church members to stay in touch

Originally released in January 2017, the mobile app enables church members and the larger community to stay up to date with the latest events, recent sermons, and all the happenings at Calgary Central. The app also came in handy as Canada began to grapple with COVID-19 and implement physical distancing restrictions.

Ghena Girleanu, Senior Pastor at the Calgary Central Church, said the mobile app helps the church to improve its services and make access to church resources much easier.

“Our members are connected to all of our church events and activities. Our church’s mobile app has provided a great avenue to advertise our events to the community. We are able to cut down on printing as information is readily available on the app. The mobile app notifications are very helpful in sending out reminders about all the activities and special events we hold at the church,” said Pastor Girleanu.
