After redesigning the hymncharts website last year I noticed how dated (and basically unusable) the Powerpoint files were.
Over the past few weeks my team has completely rebuilt all the Powerpoint files, converting them to the widescreen format and updating them to a more modern worship lyric style:
- Lyrics are centered
- Only the first line of slide is capitalized
- Copyright info on the first slide
We’ve formated them using CMG Sans. It’s my favorite font for worship slides and it is FREE for churches! Included are 34 weights, including an all-caps font. Download CMG Sans at ChurchMotionGraphics.com. (They’ll default to generic fonts if you don’t use CMG Sans.)
The slides typically follow the recorded hymncharts demo. Additional verses can be added from the text file on every arrangement’s page.
Here’s a before and after:
