What's going on with Maynard's Groovy Bible Tunes, from day to day...
You want to sing a song with kids, so you want to project the words and play the backing track or even the full track alongside it. But you don’t want to have to keep clicking to move slides because you’ll be doing the motions / actions. What can you do?
Don’t worry – help is at hand. With powerpoint you can ‘teach’ the slideshow your timings so that the slides will advance automatically at exactly the right time.
Don’t forget, the words and music recordings here at MGBT are copyright material, so you can only use these slideshows or videos in accordance with copyright. You can use them at church or with your kids club - but you can't share them or give or sell them to someone else. If you have a CCLI licence, please report the use of the words and music online with them.

I'm still working on the songs we recorded with the kids a few weeks ago - working on some new mixing techniques, so that's slowing me up. Also - work is MAD (great, but MAD) - so that stops me doing Maynards' stuff.
