It happened again! Your Christmas service is just a few days away and you don’t have anything planned. No worries! Here are five last-minute ways to improve your Christmas service with Church Media.

1. Download A Service Pack

There’s no easier way to make your Church Media look awesome than with a Service Pack. These easy-to-use bundles come with all of the media that you need to make a service look great. They typically come with a countdown timer, welcome/exit motions, and backgrounds for each of your songs. The best part is that you don’t have to worry about finding different pieces of content that work well together. These packs are created to look great together and add a level of excellence to your service that is sure to impress. Here are some of my favorites.

2. Put Together A Cheerful Pre-Service Playlist

Pre-service music can make or break the experience for your audience. There’s nothing more awkward than walking into a dead-silent church before service begins. I’m a pastor and that still weirds me out. Having some light, cheerful music playing in the background takes the edge off and reminds people that they are there for a service, not a funeral.

3. Buy A Powerful Video

Pastors, this is a no-brainer. Spending twenty bucks for an inspirational video will seem like chump change when you see how it speaks to the hearts of your audience. Videos like these are the perfect way to drive home a point and will leave people talking about the message throughout their holiday. Check out the most popular mini-movies of the season here.

4. Download A Sermon Slide Template

Don’t leave the look of your presentation up to some random PowerPoint template. Download some pre-designed Christmas slides from Church Motion Graphics. They make it really simple to take the aesthetics of your presentation to the next level. This should also spark some ideas for a sermon title that’s a little more creative than simply “Christmas”.

5. Ask A Question On Social Media

Before Sunday, post a fun Christmas-themed question on your church’s Facebook and Twitter, as well as your pastor’s social pages. Ask about favorite Christmas foods, movies, or memories. On Sunday, break the ice in your sermon by mentioning all of the great things about the season and announce what were the most popular answers.

Are you ready for your Christmas service?
