What’s on your pre-service playlist for your Christmas services this year?
When it comes to selecting background motions and stills for worship lyrics, there’s a huge number of options to choose from these days. This variety really comes in handy when you’re searching for a specific look, but can be a bit overwhelming at times – especially for beginners. Plus, it’s not always easy to know which backgrounds will work well together. That’s why I’m such a huge fan of Service Packs. They make it super easy to create a consistent theme for your service. I use them close to 90% of the time and here’s four quick reasons why I think they’d work great for your church, too.
1. Content That Plays Well Together – Service Packs take the guess work out of matching colors, tempos, and themes in your visual setlist. By pulling from backgrounds that were created to complement each other, it’s simple to have a clean, put-together look throughout your worship set.
2. The Bonus Content – Cohesion in your Sunday morning media requires more than complementing lyric backgrounds. Every piece of content that’s displayed on your screen should look like it belongs with the others. Service Packs make this really easy with included countdown videos, announcement slides, and stills that can be used when displaying scripture or sermon notes.
3. Volunteers Love Them – When you provide your volunteers with a Service Pack, you’re setting them up for success. Learning is easy as they create visual setlists for services where they (and you) can be confident that your content is going to look good. Plus, choosing one pack is much easier than 5+ random pieces of content out of a media library.
4. Affordable Pricing – It takes money to do ministry, but that doesn’t mean that we should break the bank. Service Packs offer a huge bang for your buck and are affordable on practically every budget. Trust me…your pastor will thank you.
Service Packs have proven to be a powerful tool for our media ministry. Have you tried them in your church?
