What's Included:All arrangements contained in the Have You Heard Christmas Service Guide come with your HymnCharts subscription. What's new are the underscores, readings, graphics and combined tracks. Combined tracks allow you to play one MP3 with a flow of several songs and underscores.
The total time of the music is a little over 28 minutes (probably longer with your announcements/prayer.) Add the sermon and you have a Christmas Eve Service that can last from 45 minutes to an hour. Add your own special music for an even longer service.
The Have You Heard Christmas Service Guide contains everything you need (underscores, readings, tracks and Christmas carols) for your Christmas Eve worship or Christmas Sunday worship. This versatile service can be led with as little as a capable pianist and worship leader, or with a praise team, praise band and/or a full SATB or SAB choir (plus orchestral instruments with the instrumental parts download.) If you don't have any musicians, lead the service with the stereo tracks, or even mix tracks with live performances.
This Service Guide can be used in two different ways:
The first three or four songs can be used as a Sunday morning Christmas praise set, and the entire service (with Silent Night) works great for a contemporary Christmas Eve.
You have three songs in a row to open your service, an underscore for welcome/announcements/prayer, a Scripture reading, another song, your Pastor’s sermon, a Scripture reading with Silent Night and an upbeat arrangement of Hark the Herald (Glory to the King) to close your service.
A note from arranger/composer Don Chapman
The secret to this service guide, and something you won't find ANYWHERE else, is my specially composed underscores that are to be played under the Scripture narrations. I've created these underscores to match the mood and feeling of the Scripture narrations - much like a movie score supports the acting. This will allow you to create the perfect worship flow for your service!
