Celebrating your church's anniversary can be very exciting and special to the entire congregation and more no matter how long your church has been there!

The process of setting up the anticipated celebration event for your church anniversary can and probably will be very time consuming and at times can be very stressful so we have some tips and ideas below that might help you along with the free Church Anniversary Invitation Cards, Church Anniversary Letters, Church Anniversary Certificate of Appreciation...and much more!

Here are some steps you can take to help your Church Anniversary event get started on the right foot:

  • Appoint an oversight committee to handle all the planning and arranging for the event. This oversight committee needs to include 1-2 elders and the Pastor including representative members of the congregation.
  • Set goals of what you want to accomplish during this event.
  • Set time(s) and date for the event.
  • Plan out the Church Anniversary programs.

Church Anniversary Ideas

  • Create and Publish a Church History - The older your church is the more important that this becomes but even younger churches need to pay attention to this for when their church becomes older historians will have materials to work with on their church anniversary events. This a wonderful opportunity for your church to testify God's mercy, grace and provision.
  • Gather Good Photos - Find good photos of former and current Pastors and elders - be sure to identify everyone in photos. Group photos are excellent if you have took them throughout the previous year. You need photos of the church building (former also if it applies) and features (stained glass windows, pulpit, etc.) of the church.
  • Memorable Member Notes - Give each member a blank sheet of paper prior to event for them to fill in with what the church has meant to their lives and then have them return them to a designated person in charge of overseeing the event. At this time, you can gather them together and create a book to display in the foyer at the event.
  • Host a Banquet or Luncheon - Have a meal or luncheon in your fellowship hall and maybe have your teenagers serve the tables. You might encourage everyone to bring special church photos to share at their tables.
  • Church Anniversary Invitation Cards (below) - Send out these beautiful invitation cards to the members, former members, others connected to the church as well as local community leaders, etc.
  • Church Anniversary Letters (below) - Send out these special invitation letters to members, parishioners, etc. approximately month prior to event.
  • Special Appreciation Awards (below) - Give out awards and/or certificates to long time members, volunteers, etc. Click the link below for many more free church certificates.

Visitor Testimonials

*I do the tithes at the end of the year for a very small outreach in the city of Detroit. They had been paying thousands of dollars every several years trying to keep a database of their donors.

I searched last year for something less costly for them and came across your database (Shepherdbase). It is a blessing and so appreciated. Thank you for all your hard work and thank you for Giving To The Lord. Peacemakers Int. in Detroit on Chene street is another ministry you have blessed. - Charlene - U.S. *Disclaimer

*This website has been very useful for my ministries with Hospice, the Hospital and Human Services. I recommend this website to any church, ministry or agency that is supporting or ministering to people. God Bless You - Chaplain Dave - U.S. *Disclaimer

*Just wanted to let you know how helpful your resources are. We are a small church and have missed out on doing a lot of things. We ordered your Church Forms on CD and are just pleased. Keep up the good work of providing resources for Churches. - Lillian - U.S. *Disclaimer

*I am a minister of the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and have been tremendously blessed to access you and pray that God the Almighty favor you in what you do. You have enabled me to access ready-designed church documents. Thanks and God Bless You Terressa. - Bro. Mike - Kenya, Africa *Disclaimer

*Thank You! You're heart for giving free resources and making things so affordable is truly a blessing. My Pastor always says: "What you make happen for someone else, God will make happen for you!" May God richly bless you and your ministry to us and so many others, enlarge your territory and bring financial blessings with good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over!!! 10,000 Blessings! Leeanna - U.S. *Disclaimer

*Thanks for making this site available. I took over as secretary of our small church a few months ago, and I am having to create a lot of forms. This site is a blessing! - Vicki - U.S. *Disclaimer

*After years of frustration and being overcharged for Church Management software, I came across "Shepherbase" and all my problems were solved. *Disclaimer

This database:
  • 1. Tracks members and visitors
  • 2. Tracks contributions
  • 3. Organizes by both individual AND family
  • 4. Creates professional letters, relevant to church ministry
  • 5. Is easy to use
  • 6. Costs a mere fraction of other databases offering similar features. *Disclaimer
  • 7. So much more.

I am very thankful for this product and I recommend it to anybody wanting to exit the cost and complexity rat race of Church databases.
Thank you Shepherdbase!
