Create Church Video for Thanksgiving Day with PowerPoint
Thanksgiving Day is coming soon on Nov, 26th. It is a day for expressing thanks to the good in life, especially to family and friends. For many Christians, they may go to the church and express thanks to the God. Prayer of Thanksgiving is very important in any and every Christian’s relationship with God.
If you are a pastor or a person authorized to conduct religious worship in church, and happened to be the person who is appointed for making the arrangement of the Thanksgiving prayer, an announcement DVD/video or one to accompany the prayer will help you solve lots of trouble. Here are some main benefits of exhibiting such DVD/videos:
- Create an atmosphere for Thanksgiving with DVD/videos played continuously on TV or through a projector
- Tell people clearly about the arrangement of activities on Thanksgiving
- Impress the viewers with the vivid animated DVD/video
- Any other warnings can be displayed out
You might think that making such a streaming church DVD/video is going to be very expensive by asking others to do it, or it may require complex computer skills and lots of time. But believe it or not, with the right way and tool, such a Thanksgiving DVD/video can be created in mainly two steps. Here you can see it.
What you will need: PowerPoint and a PowerPoint to DVD or video burning tool
Step1: Choose a proper PowerPoint template or background
Step2: Create contents for the DVD/video in PowerPoint
Thanksgiving activity arrangement details, events, Thanksgiving prayer, poem and etc can all be displayed in PowerPoint. To make the video more dynamic, you can add various animations. Besides, tables, pictures, clipart, and SmartArt are all available. The picture showed above is just a sample.
Step3: Insert music files to the Thanksgiving presentation
Suitable background music can make the atmosphere more comfortable. Here are some Thanksgiving songs. For step-by-step guide about how to do it, you can see this article: How to Add Music to Thanksgiving PowerPoint.
Step4: Set the presentation to run automatically
As the duration of each slide may different, so it’s necessary to set up the time that each slide appears. To do this, you can reference this article: How to Advance Slides Automatically in PowerPoint.
Step5: Convert the PowerPoint you made to DVD or video
This is the last step of creating your Thanksgiving video for church use. To finish it, all you need is just a conversion tool that can help you convert your PowerPoint to DVD or video. You can try this PowerPoint to DVD converter from Acoolsoft. After the conversion, you can directly play the output DVD or video at the waiting room or foyer for people to view.
