We have added the ability for new users to log into our WP via a Facebook or Google account login.
This works very well and a WP user is created automatically. Once the new user has logged in they are presented with our home page as an authenticated user.
At this point they do not have a user profile in Church Admin.
Would it be possible for a new, authenticated user, logging in for the first time to be automatically directed to the "My Account" page in order to populate their data?

Also, when the user does fill in the My Account page for the first time the submit button at the bottom says "Register". That's fine but when they do submit the form the current user's WP account is not automatically linked to the new user just created in Church Admin. Is it possible to add this functionality?

Is it better not to in order for the Administrator to moderate new accounts? If so, can the "Register" submission of the "My Account" for give feedback (dialog & email) explaining that the Administrator will enable their account soon? (customizable of course)

I know that is a lot but this whole new user issue is a plague for every WP Admin and user.

I'm thinking that, instead of waiting for the Administrator, it would be better to add the new user to a innocuous, safe role like visitor. Something with no permissions.

Couple of thoughts

Under Church Admin>Settings>General Settings you can redirect where people go on login
New users are "subscriber" level which is innocuous!
Will need to think about the rest!

If you are finding the plugin useful, please subscribe to the app - it's free for your congregation to use and only £9.99pm for a church subscription - free int'l bank transfers with Revolut

Fantastic. The subscriber is, of course, the best answer.

The page redirect request, though, was very specifically just for the situation where someone has a WP account but does not yet have a Church Admin user.
I am asking if they could be sent to the My Account form as their first page until they have filled it out and clicked "Register".

How does that sound?
