Using Sharefaith’s collection of Christian videos, you can totally transform your church’s media experience. Now, rather than featuring videos as a only-once-in-awhile event, church loops can be used basically all the time. Here’s your quick-start guide to using church loops throughout the service. 

Church loops are just as easy to use, if not easier than still backgrounds.

First off, keep in mind that church videos aren’t a whole lot different than other types of projected media that you may use. They may take a bit longer to download, but that’s about it. For example, using a worship video background for your worship lyrics requires only as much setup as a worship still background would take. With other types of church loops, there is even less setup and prep time, since the text is already provided for you.

Obviously, we have nothing against still backgrounds. After all, we annually produce hundreds of stunning still backgrounds. They have a place, but they should be balanced out by a proportionate use of church video loops. Church loops add that extra zing–a bit of interest, pizzazz, motion, and modern flair to keep people interested and engaged.

Here is how you can use church loops for maximum effectiveness all throughout a church service.

Church Loops Before the Service

Use church loops to welcome people into the service.
This is easy. Just download a relevant Welcome Video Loop, and you’re ready to go. Welcome videos are attractively-designed video loops that display a welcome message and greeting.

Use church loops to display announcements.
You can use a church worship video background to use as a backdrop for your announcements, too. Simply use the video as you would a PowerPoint background, and overlay your text or other information. Read a quick how-to guide on how to add text to a video loop.

Use church loops to announce an event in the service or a Christian holiday.
Celebrating an event or Christian holiday? The Christian Video LoopsSeasonal Video Loops and Holiday Video Loops are perfect for this kind of occasion. Usually, these video loops can be used as-is, but depending on the church loop, you can add your own custom text, too.

Use church loops to display verses.
Nature church loops like this one are perfect for displaying verses for meditation before the service.

Use church countdown timers.
Obviously, you’ll want to count down to your service start time, too. We’ve got videos for that, too!

One amazing site for everything you need. One rock-bottom price for the whole year.

    I have added church loops to my presentation and on my computer it works fine. However, when I save it to the computer at church for presentation, it says that the file has become corrupted and the slides containing the loop are just blank. the remainder of the slide is in order and the programs that I use and the programs on the church’s computer are the same.
    Any advise please?

      There could be a variety of issues involved with this issue. The first thing I would check on is the version of PowerPoint you’re using. (I assume you’re using PowerPoint.) What version of PPT are you using on your computer, and then what version are you using on the church computer? I’ll send you a direct email, and we’ll see if we can get this figured out.

      Hi Akin,
      Thanks for the question. Most of our video loops are intentionally designed without sound. Since the purpose of these videos are as a background for worship lyrics, they don’t need any sound. For example, all worship loops do not have sound.

      We do, however, design mini-movies and sermon videos that should have sound–music, narration, etc. The videos in this category (Sermon Video) should all have sound.

      If you’ve found an error in the sound on any of these videos, please let us know so we can get it corrected. Thank you!

      Hello Akin,

      Nope. Your trial period has nothing to do with that. Only our sermon videos ( mini movies/sermon illustration videos) has music and voice audio. Our worship video backgrounds and welcome video loops are not designed with audio. Feel free to put your own audio/music with any of our videos using a variety of tools available on the internet.

      It really depends on what you mean when asking if it works in on IPAD. Flash is not supported on an IPAD. There is a new IPAD browser, SKYBrowser, that can indeed showcase flash content, however it is not optimized. For the videos to show on an IPAD you will have to download the MPEG or MP4 version and it will play perfectly.

    Can the time on the countdown videos be changed?

    • admin

      Thanks for the question, Adrienne. The time on the countdown timers can be changed using your video editing or presentation software. For example, if you use PowerPoint, you can set the countdown timer to begin displaying at a later point within the video, enabling you to start a five minute countdown timer at two minutes, for example. Keynote and ProPresenter also have similar features, that allows you to start the video at a later point. Please note that you cannot add time to a video. The videos are created with the times already displayed, so there is no way to “program” or alter the time display image itself.
