Why not make a small stage set, hire some lights, buy some balloons, stick a logo on the kick drum, or introduce some ‘characters’ into your celebration. You could encourage some of your kids and youth to join with the band. Why not put together a kids/youth choir. Why not mix the service up – you don’t have to stock to the usual format! If you have computers and projectors, buy some new movie backgrounds for the songs. Think creative and think big!
