How to Import a Google Calendar to Your Faithlife Group

Print Friendly and PDF

If your church already uses an external calendar like Google Calendar, connect it to your Faithlife group’s calendar so you don't have to manage both calendars at once.

As you update your external calendar, all future changes will populate to your Faithlife group. Any service that links in with your group calendar—like Faithlife Proclaim or Faithlife Sites—will always display your most up-to-date information.

Import Google Calendar
