Synchronized Calendar

 

 

We have started to leverage a Google Calendar to help manage the Church and School calendars. Having a shared calendar allows both the Church and School to know more about what everyone is doing, but also allows us some additional options. One significant update is now the ability to push the calendar to your personal phone. This calendar would be read-only and allow you to have the most up to date information about every event in the palm of your hand.

 

The process of adding the calendar to your phone is described below depending on the type of phone you have. Once the calendar is added, you will be able to see the details to all of the events that go on with the chuch and school.

 

Please understand that some of the events may have a limited audience, so please look at the event details to understand more about who the meeting is for.

 

If you run into problems setting up the calendar, please send an e-mail to jwitt@zionconcord.org.

  • Two weeks of past single-instance (non-recurring) events.

  • Six months of future single-instance events.

  • All recurring events that have occurrences within the last two weeks or in the next six months.

  • If you don't want to sync everything—email, contacts, and calendars—from your Google or iCloud account, go to Settings > Email + accounts, tap the account you want to change, and then select or clear the check boxes under Content to sync.
