What is a Church Calendar?

A calendar for a church shows a clear timetable of various church events, activities, special occasions, gatherings, programs, meetings, conferences, volunteer work, ministry classes and many more events in specific months, days, weeks, and years. 

 

This is an important tool for people attending the church as well as the administrators, pastors, and other individuals who have key responsibilities in the church so that they are able to know the designated dates for different events and activities that will happen for a day, week, month, or the whole year. 

How to Create a Church Calendar 

If you’re the person in charge of designing an effective calendar for your church, you should carefully consider the church activities, events, themes, people, the Bible message, and many others. So, what are the things you need to do? In order to create an organized church calendar, below are some beneficial tips to consider: 

1. Determine the type of calendar 

Do you want a daily, monthly, two-month, quarterly, or annual? Think carefully and determine what type of calendar you want to create for your church. To help you create your calendar, you need to find some design inspirations for the calendar. Look for various design and inspirational websites like Pinterest or Behance. Or we suggest that you choose and use one of our stylish templates in this article. 

2. Use some photo or illustration 

A photo or illustration can be used as a design for the calendar. If you are making a monthly calendar, we suggest that you include a motivational Bible-based photo related to the corresponding month you’re working on or if you’re a visual artist or graphics designer, use your creative prowess in drawing and creating a traditional or digital illustration connected to the Biblical theme of the month in the calendar. 

3. Add text, colorful elements, or embellishments 

Then, you can add some texts such as the names of the months for the year, as well as the names of the days for every month. Incorporate some colorful elements, or other embellishments according to the theme of the week or month if you want to bring some life to the calendar. 

4. Edit, and finalize your calendar 

If you’re done with your calendar, you need to examine each part and section of the calendar. Make sure that the order of the numbers and names of days, weeks, and months are appropriate. Check the events and activities in your list if everything important is included and nothing is left behind. If you notice some errors, edit them right away. Lastly, finalize your calendar.
