Church Attendance Cards and More

Church Attendance Cards and more available free such as Church Attendance Record, Cards, Sign-In Book and Church Attendance Policy to download 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, customize and print for your church administration office, etc.


A very popular way to track church attendance is the church attendance cards that you can insert into the back of the pews or the back of the seat pouches. 

These cards (2 free samples below) can include just the name of the person attending the church service or it can include more if you prefer such as their name, phone and email in case they are a new visitor.

There are many ways to track church attendance. The process for the church attendance cards and more vary but a popular process is to announce for everyone to fill out the card sometime before main church service and then have your elders or ushers pick them up some time during the service.

Another solution to tracking church attendance is to have a sign-in book either at the entrance of the sanctuary or at the end of the pew. Members and visitors alike fill in their name to indicate their presence. This process prevents any interruptions to the church service while providing the information needed.

It depends upon your church as to the way you want to track your church attendance but tracking is extremely important.

Church metrics help you see real-time statistics about your church congregation attendance.

The Covid pandemic has sadly and drastically changed church attendance. Just when everyone felt safe about going back to church another variant popped up. When this happened it resulted in the congregation returning to virtual church services and some drive through. These are great but how to do you know who is attending virtually? This question has challenged many church leaders because they have an interest in who is attending.

Why do Churches Care About Tracking Attendance?

Monitoring church growth is only as effective as a church's ability to track attendance.

While growth is not always the goal, understanding attendance patterns is crucial to connecting with members. It's very significant to know who is there because knowing who is there allows church leaders to be aware of who is missing to be able to check on them, etc. If you don't have a way to track the attendance then this gets neglected.

To get who was there, the information you need for the software or form, in every church service there are a few different ways depending on the size of your church. 

After collecting your data on your church attendance, you will need a spreadsheet, form or software to keep this extremely important data such as the:

  • Church Attendance Record - The sample Microsoft Office Excel spreadsheet/record can help keep and track your church attendance data. This church attendance record in Microsoft Office Excel format will allow you track church attendance by the month with the name, dates attended, number of attending by month and percentage and how many attended in that month. You can download this church attendance record by clicking the link below. You can receive this church attendance record and more forms (all the forms on this website) in editable format on a CD or Instant Download by clicking this link.
  • Church Attendance Software - There are many types of church attendance software you can find by searching the web. I created Shepherdbase (church membership database) to track contributions, member's information, church attendance which also gives you an automatic report by month, year, etc. after a simple way to input your data and so much more for a very affordable price so that even small churches can afford it (one time fee).

There are a few churches that does not track attendance of any kind but most will take a head count. The health of the congregation is a place where the Word of God is preached in its truth and purity. When these things are not occurring, one external sign of this problem could be a decline in attendance. Decreases in attendance may signal to your church leadership that the congregation itself is becoming unhealthy and may need a renewed focus on these gifts of God.

Lack of church attendance may not always be spiritual health; physical aliments could possibly be the cause of decreased worship attendance. Tracking attendance of the individuals allows the Pastor(s) and Elder(s) to see the trends and reach out to these members through alternative means, such as home visits or recordings of the worship service.

Visitor Testimonials

*I wanted to take a minute (during my email time slot) to thank you for all this work you do and share with the small church community. You and your staff (if you have some) are very much a blessing. Thank you, Elizabeth - PA - U.S.
*Terressa! I received the discs today!! A few years back I was at a small church that used your software and it was perfect for their volunteers to use. The church I am at now has 2 volunteer secretaries and one found your product and I gushed!!! Her first request is a directory so this will be perfect. God Bless you for creating such a great system (Shepherdbase). Regards - Tonya - OK - U.S.
*This is the 1st time I've visited your website and I just wanted to say "thank you". I go to a very small Christian Church and thanks to you, the forms you have for a children's ministry will keep me from having to "reinvent the wheel" and I am very grateful to you. We are a very small church (about 40 regular attendees) and 90% of those are over 65. We just had a young couple offer to help us get a Youth Group. Thanks to you, we won't have to do to much to get this off and running for the holiday season. Thanks again! - Kentucky - U.S.
*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

*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!"
