How to Enhance your Pre and Post Announcement Loop

Show Notes

Welcome to this episode of Your Visuals Matter. We’re diving into the dynamic world of using media content on your screens to enhance the worship experience, both before and after the service.

We’ll discuss some of the different approaches. Like using Still Graphics, set to loop seamlessly, a staple of pre-service and post-service visuals. To considering a more dynamic touch, using short, self-contained Motion Graphics. These eye-catching animations add flair and can also be seamlessly looped in your presentation software.

Additionally, you can try adding footage from your church for a personal touch, showcasing the impact of your ministry. From smiling faces to community outreach, highlight the heart of your church through video snippets, creating an immersive experience for your congregation.
