Things change fast on the interwebs. Really fast.
Unfortunately, things changed. Fast. In just five years, nearly all of the links in those two posts are either no longer available or are no longer free.
So, for your viewing pleasure, here are 7 new church media sources. Together, these gracious servants have made more than 100 video loops, mini movies, motion backgrounds, and stills FREE and available to churches.
Be sure to thank them when you stop by, and happy downloading!
