“Spread The Love” With Fresh Valentine’s Day Media!

The following post is by Kendall Conner at TheCreativePastor.com.

Is your church planning a love-themed service around Valentine’s Day? Centerline has an awesome new Service Pack that will give your V-Day service a consistent, creative look from countdown to closing. They also have an incredible, new mini-movie that coordinates with this pack. Are you feeling the love yet? Here’s a quick preview of how we’ll be using this content in our church. Hopefully it will spark some ideas for your service!

Live_Love_Welcome

Welcome Motion

As people are walking in and finding their seats, we’ll loop this motion on our screens, as well as on a TV that we have in the lobby. This both shows the theme of our service and highlights our key verse for the day. (We will also have some love-themed tunes playing in the background.)

Countdown
Since we’ve been using countdowns for the past several years, our congregation knows what’s up when numbers hit the screen. The anticipation that grows because of these things never gets old for me. Not only does this countdown keep up that same creative look, it also has some great background music that will generate some pre-service excitement.

Motions During Worship
This pack comes with some really neat motions that will go perfect with your love-themed worship songs. Since they’re made up of two different colors, I like to alternate them with each song. (Red, Blue, Red, Blue – You get the idea.) Here’s a few examples of songs that would work perfect in your Valentine’s set list.

“Lovely” by Chris Tomlin
“How He Loves” by John Mark Macmillan
“Furious” by Jeremy Riddle
“The Same Love” by Paul Baloche
“All For Love” by Hillsong United
“Love Came Down” by Jeremy Riddle
“The Face of Love” by Sanctus Real
“Our God Is Love” by Hillsong
“Your Love Never Fails” by Chris Quilala

Love_Comes_To_Life

Mini-Movie Sermon Opener
One of my favorite ways to transition to the morning message is by playing a mini-movie. This provides enough time for our worship team to move off the stage and for our pastor to take his place front and center. These short videos have a unique way of grabbing the attention of the audience and paving the way for a memorable sermon. This particular mini-movie has a great message that your congregation will be left thinking about all week.

Sermon Slides
I was really impressed by the large number of still images that comes with this pack. They will really come in handy when putting together your sermon slides. Because there are so many stills, you’re able to add some diversity throughout your presentation. Two pre-made title slides are available for download – Live A Life of Love and Love Comes To Life. Or, you can always add your own title to one of the blank slides. Scriptures, quotes, and points will all show up great on these backgrounds, too. Because the font used by Centerline (Intro) was a bit pricey, I found a free alternative (Nexa) to use on our Pastor’s slides.

Live_Love_Closing

See-You-Later Slide
We always enjoy sending our church family home with a friendly goodbye slide as they’re leaving. This pack comes with a nifty motion that will work perfect for sending your congregation home remembering to “Live A Life of Love.”

These are just a few ideas, but with these tools, you can really get creative! Beyond creating a clean, professional look for your church, using unified media like this brings together the various pieces of your service. Nothing communicates love to your audience better than the feeling of unity.

What are your plans for your Valentine’s service?
