Yesterday was a great day. A long day (we have 2 morning services and 2 evening services), but a good day. Besides our regular worship through the Word and music, we celebrated Communion and a Parent/Child Dedication at each service. I was also pumped that we did my current favorite song: “Everlasting God” by Brenton Brown.
Last Sunday we had half of our service inside and half outside, where we wrote names on the wall of our new worship center (of people we’re praying for). It was an amazing and moving sight. I’ll get a picture and post it on here, but imagine Scripture, countries, schools, and thousands of names written all over the outside concrete walls of our future worship center.
To kind of bring back the memory of what’s on the outside walls, I used a motion background entitled “Worship Phrases” from Igniter Media’s Igniter Backs Volume 2. The “worship phrases” scrolling by looked a lot like what some people had written on the walls outside. It was a cool reminder of the special time we had the week before. I know I’ve blogged about them before, but it’s worth repeating: Igniter Backs are an essential tool for every church’s media ministry.
If you don’t have both volumes – get them. They are like gold. Each volume contains some of the best and most usable stills, loops and countdowns. If you don’t have either volume, your best bet is to get the 2-pack – you won’t regret it.
Here’s a cool website to check out. They have their own videos, which you might find interesting. Also, check out WorshipHouse’s new FREE download of the month – it’s jammed packed!
