Bumper videos are short video clips that set the stage for a topic or theme in your church services. They can be used at nearly any point in your time of worship to grab the attention of your audience and transition to what’s next. Often compared to movie trailers, these videos are brief, but can make a big impact to set the tone emotionally and preview where you’re going next in the service.
Here’s a quick guide on how you can use them at your church:
1. As A Service Opener
Playing a bumper video at the beginning of your worship service is a guaranteed way to grab the attention of your audience from the start. This placement in the service can also be helpful for letting everyone know that you’re getting started.

2. During Your Worship Set
By showing a bumper video in your worship set, you’re able to communicate a deeper message, as well as set the tone for your next song. This placement in the service can be useful for transitions when the vocalists or band need to make changes.
3. As A Sermon Opener
Showing a bumper video before the pastor comes to speak is one of the most popular uses of these clips since it can be used to establish the teaching topic of the day. This placement in the service is also a big help for creating a smooth transition as the band leaves the stage and the pastor comes up.
4. During Your Sermon
Using a bumper video in your sermon can be an effective way to transition into the next point of your message. This placement in the service can be useful for shaking things up and recapturing the attention of your audience.
