Announcement slides can play a huge role in communicating information to your church family. Whether you’re displaying this loop of slides before your service begins, at certain times during your service, or even as people are leaving, they are a great way to get the word out about upcoming events.
Our church’s creative team recently took our announcements through a major redesign for the new season. (We had used the previous design for a year.) Our goal was to keep the same visual theme, but have subtle differences between each slide to catch your eye.
They nailed it!
I was so excited about how they turned out that I posted a preview on the popular Visual Church Media Facebook Group to show off the new look. In just a matter of minutes, countless likes and comments were flooding in expressing how much people liked the new look. With that came many requests for the templates, so I thought I’d share them not only with the VCM group, but with our TCP community, as well.
Because these designs are a little more complex than most announcement slides, I had to create them in Photoshop. They are pretty easy to edit if you are familiar with the program, but may be more difficult for beginners.
For everyone using different software for announcement slides, hopefully you can at least gain some inspiration from these designs.

Thank you for posting these. As someone that is a part time volunteer and a full-time company man, I appreciate you making these available for us to use. Time is usually in short supply for me to get resources and assets built for the weekends.
Thanks for the download, Kendall. As always, you set a great bar of excellence that inspires me and so many others!
I can’t thank you enough for posting these, we were just in the process of trying to create the same thing for our church plant. This website is always a blessing.
Love them thanks.
I was one of the people on the group hounding you for these. :) Thanks so much man, these are great! I admire the branding at Piedmont, I’m know it takes a lot of work to keep it cohesive. Great work man!
This is definitely helpful! Thank you! I’m always on the lookout for new designs to mess around with, and adding the Photoshop files was an awesome plus!
Thank’s. Good job!!!
AWESOME!! I LOVE THEM ALL!!! Thanks to you and the team for creating and then sharing these with the community! You are the best, may God continue to richly bless you and the team!
I love your kingdom mindset and how you share your digital work. Thank you for these. Now if I can just figure out how to use photoshop lol.
These are great! I’ve been working toward changing the design of our announcement slides for a while now and it’s not an easy thing to do. I really like some of these ideas and will definitely be incorporating them at my church. I sure appreciate you sharing them, Kendall, but more importantly the psd files. What a treat!
Thank you sir! Really appreciate these! A question for you though (excuse my ignorance of photoshop) when I try to edit a color on one of the slides (social media for example) I get lines from corner to corner of the image… Why is that? Just curious… will probably switch to one of our own images.
I wasn’t able to include the photos due to copyright issues, so I had to put an X over them. Wish I could’ve included them!
Thank you so much for posting and sharing these!! I am not that proficient with photoshop, so please excuse my ignorance, but I am not able to edit them … I am using Photoshop Elements 6. and can’t seem to get them to open up with the layers so I can edit the words. Any suggestions?
Thanks. This’ll save me some time!
Wow!! This page is amazing. Thank you so much for helping me to be better in my ministry.
Thank you for the awesome resources! God bless you guys…
These are great! I love the messages & colors. I just started doing media at my church & am constantly looking for new ideas! Thank you!
Hello my name is Juan I just recently started serving in our church’s media department and I’m looking to make some changes and updates on the way we do announcements. I think this link will be very helpful for us but I can’t get it. I was wondering if you can shared with us since you are the last person to post.
Thank you and God bless you.
Is this still available? The dropbox link says the file was deleted or moved. I just recently started serving in our church’s media department and I’m looking to make a few simple upgrades to our current setup. These would be awesome!
Hi David did you have anyone reply back to you ? I am in the same boat.
Hi I Just stared doing the announcement at my church I am trying to get some guidance on how to do things i love what i see here can you please help me ?
thank you blessings
I was so excited when I found this article and saw these templates. I am very good with Photoshop and .psd files. This was going to save me a lot of time. Since I am a volunteer and have my own job, time of course is precious. I clicked the link that took me to dropBox but it says the files have been deleted. I am wondering if you still have these available somewhere and if you could send me a link. Thanks!
