Church Announcement Slides From Sharefaith

Most Churches have announcement slides running before and after their services to inform their congregations of important events and opportunities. Often times these messages are a jumble of different designs and styles that don’t communicate effectively the messages that they are trying to convey.

The artists and designers at Sharefaith have created a huge collection of background slides and images to give your announcements a cohesive look and feel and grab the attention of your parishioners so that they won’t miss those important messages and events you want them to see.

All the images are formatted to work with your worship software and PowerPoint presentations. Many are designed to work with image sets that coordinate with the sermon presentation, worship lyrics and other visual media.

Check out the Church Announcement Backgrounds today and see if you can raise the level of effectiveness in the announcement time at your Church.

Christian Holidays On Sharefaith

Sharefaith has an extensive list of Christian Holiday articles in the Spread The Word inspirational guide for Christian Churches. From Advent to the Wise Men of the Nativity, there are 67 articles in all to give you an overview of each holiday on the Christian calendar.

Here’s an excerpt from the article on the Feast of the Transfiguration coming up on August 6th:

The Feast of the Transfiguration, on August 6th, is an annual celebration observed by Catholic, Anglican, and some Protestant ministries in Western Christianity. It commemorates what many consider to be the highest point of Jesus’ earthly life, when he was “transfigured” by a brilliant white light at the top of a mountain and proclaimed to be the well-loved Son of God from a heavenly voice.

The Origins of the Feast
The Feast of the Transfiguration is held to have been founded by Saint Gregory the Illuminator, some time in the early third century, AD. It is said that the Feast took the place of an earlier pagan ritual known as “roseflame”, as Christ’s transfiguration was also similar to a flaming rose. The Feast was relatively slow to be adopted by the majority of churches, though most took up the practice by the 15th century.

Sharefaith also has images, clipart and designs for all the Christian Holidays.
