Some other suggestions: If the sermon is also a Power Point presentation, incorporate both the song service and the sermon into one presentation. When selecting a background for the sermon slides, do not use the apply to all option. This will cause problems for your song slides when the sermon is added to the song file. Have the minister create a slide from which he can create the rest of his slides using copy/paste. After you have created your song and sermon presentation, save it out as a Power Point Show (pps), then create a shortcut to the file and place the icon on the desktop. This way the correct presentation will be shown and it will start on slide one. You may wish to not include the invitation song in your song service presentation. Make a slide that will show the song number only. This will give you the normal versatility to make adjustments as needed. Do not be afraid to turn the projector off and just go with the book. Things happen and you need to be flexible. Press SPACE for next slide.
