Years ago, as the Media Ministry leader for a local small church, I discovered worship loops for Easyworship. What a refreshing change they were over static, single-colored backgrounds! Our members loved them, too.
I especially liked the nature scenes. Spring-themed blossoms, lush wooded paths and babbling brooks were my favorites.
In 2009 and 2010, Jesse Orndorff posted links to some great free worship loops and motion backgrounds for churches here on Church Website Ideas. For a long time, those two articles were the most popular posts on this blog!
But there was a problem. Things change fast on the interwebs.
Just five years after the original posts went live, nearly all of the links in those two posts either died or were no longer free.
So, here for your viewing pleasure, are 5 new church media sources. Together, these gracious servants have made more than 600 video loops, mini movies, motion backgrounds, and stills FREE and available to churches (or anyone else in search of high quality, free video loops).
Download and use these as worship backgrounds, website backgrounds, Powerpoint video backgrounds, or in whatever project a moving background will enhance and clarify the message.
