Live-streaming has been a game-changer for churches across the world. It has given the local church a reach that goes beyond their local community. Most importantly though, it has helped congregants stay connected to their home church; even when they can’t be there physically. But...
Let’s talk about two tools found in Church Connect (your church app) that can be used to track your church’s remote attendance. These are the Attendance Card and the Form Card.
Church Connect is an all-in-one church website, church app, and member portal built into ChurchTrac. Share your connect URL via text, email, social media, and more. During your worship service, encourage attendees to log in to Church Connect to get fully connected. If you have the capability, displaying your URL or QR code on the bottom corner of the screen throughout the service works wonderfully...
After creating an Attendance Event with corresponding Tags assigned to your people, go ahead and add an Attendance Card to your Church Connect. That card will be visible to all of your people who are logged into Church Connect during that event. On ours, we created a simple attendance card that people can click on the main page. We recommend making your attendance card in a color that’s different than your other cards to really help it stand out.
Note: Once a logged-in attendee clicks the card, they will have the option to check in themselves and the rest of their family. Once they click submit that’s it! Their attendance for the event has been tracked.
For Guests that have not created a Church Connect profile, a Form Card enables you to capture information so that you know who attended. A digital "Connection Card" is the best way to do this, as you can then follow up with every person afterward. At some point during your live stream, encourage guests to fill out your connection Form Card each time so that you know they attended.
With Attendance and Form Cards in Church Connect, you can track attendance for both members and guests that attend your church remotely. During your live stream, you can share your Church Connect URL and display your QR code multiple times to make it easy for attendees to access your Connect page and respond.
