I thought I had previously posted this on the dc forums but after a quick search I didn't see it.

I have been using a free program called Power Worship that will display songs during a worship service.  It actually takes the songs that are saved in a text file and then after building a song list, it then creates a power point for you.  It also works with Open Office.

here is a quote from their website

PowerWorshipTM works with Microsoft® PowerPoint® to allow users to maintain a library of worship songs and to dynamically build slide shows and reusable song groups.

Maybe its time for my first mini review.   undecided

Good luck, the reception here to worship tools would be the same as if you were a FOX News executive asking for advice for a day planner.

Oh, I realize that Cpilot.  But out of 215,000 members and I am the only one who has an interest in something like this?  This forum gets a lot of posts for many different types of software, why not some church software too.  Besides its not like it is related to a certain denomination.  smiley

I don't think it would be limited to only worship songs. I am sure one could add their favorite pop tunes and use it for other purposes, outside of worship...like maybe karaoke. Might be something you might want to try when you do your review.

Hmm. Text file to Powerpoint program + Powerpoint to DVD program + Portable DVD Player = Ebook Reader Wink
(although I probably wouldn't really do that, I'm just throwing it out there).

Bring on the mini review.

Yes App you are correct, it could be used for anything.  I hadn't thought of it in that way.

A review would be useful, because their site certainly isn't. There's no useful information there. (I didn't download it to have a look primarily because of the lack of information.)

I am interested in it as I wrote some captioning software about 7 years ago. It's still interesting for me.

I can just imagine the wicked cool stuff I could do for that sort of software, especially with combining dedicated hardware.

On a total tangent, or at least tenuously related given the whole music and religion theme...


I'll look forward to the review! (Subscribing to this thread now.)

PowerWorship 3.0 was updated for Office 2010 :-)
Not many programs can claim such feature!

Sure thing, techidave; let's have a review!  thumbs up

Churches have networks too...

Just a quick question about the (impartial) review ... You're not the same techidave that's a moderator on the PowerWorship user forum, right?

I have a brother in law who is a pastor. I think I've heard him talk about the software they use to project the lyrics and stuff during the worship.  I'm sure he might find a mini review useful.

Okay, just checking, I stumbled across that while trying to give the app a fair glancing over. Granted I'm an atheist, but there are several churches in our client list... Wink

(Speaking of which) There is another app called PowerChurch (parishioner/donation management CMS sort of thing)that I've seen several times and it always has an office full of happy users. Are these two perchance related??

ok, I am trying to add a screenshot to the template.  I am in the full view mode.  the image is stored locally on my hard drive.  I am using inline display attatchment which then displays something like [ ERROR: SPECIFIED ATTACHMENT MISSING ] .

it should read something like attach=# in brackets
 But how do I get the file name in theirthere??

You don't. Just do attach=1, attach=2, etc. in the order they are uploaded.

thanks Lanux.  I looked at post when I was searching dc for help on this.  but I missed the connection between teh attach=# and the attachment box below that.

I think I finally got it.  I am writing it in the "my personal area" before moving it to the mini review section.  I hope I can figure that out.

you're welcome. smiley another helpful tool when you're writing a mini-review is a BBCode editor such as this one: BBCeditor.
