Before the service, we run a video loop that has a few of our announcements in it. So imagine that you’re waiting for the worship center doors to open. You have a bit of pre-play music going… say Hillsong United or something upbeat that like, and the doors finally open. You walk up the voms and get the first glimpse of the entire worship center… stage nicely lit, speakers pumpin’ the pre-roll music, and the projectors are rollin this pre-roll video (our countdown clock sits in the bottom right of the screen where the greyish box is):
And that’s how we do our pre-service.
