First off let me say that when the idea first came up I thought it was a bad idea. So one Sunday about 5 weeks ago I made a decision to sit in our seats and take in a service. What I realized was that during worship all I really cared about were the words on the screens. Since we don’t overlay text over video during worship, it seemed like a no brainer to give it a try.
So that’s exactly what we did, and we’ve heard nothing but good feedback. Here’s a list of some of the other reasons & benefits of this major change.
- By not doing IMAG it allows us to focus on the worship environment, instead of having our lights up to a certain level for the cameras. (We don’t have to flood the stage w/white light)
- It takes the focus off of our Worship Leaders during worship and I feel like now there are less distractions during worship.
- BUT..we still IMAG our Worship Leaders if they’re doing a song setup, or a welcome, invitation setup or introducing a new song. We also still do IMAG during the message.
Clearly, what works for one church doesn’t necessarily work for another. And at Lake Hills Church we always evaluate what we do. We are also not afraid to change, and try new things. So I’m not saying we will never do IMAG in worship ever again, because we may.
