Empower Your Churchhttp://openlp.org/
Your church was just given a data projector and you want to use it to display the lyrics of songs. You were thinking of using PowerPoint, but after a test found it very unwieldy. Then someone suggested that you look at commercial church presentation software, but when you looked at the price tag, you knew your church could not afford that kind of money. You begin to wonder if you should just go back to hymn books and just leave projection of song words to bigger churches who can afford to do it.
Allow us to present the solution to the problem: OpenLP
openlp.org is free. And it's not just a below-standard freebie thing, it's a powerful, elegant open source application. What does that mean? It means that the code that the developers write is available to you. But more than that, it means that openlp.org is, and always will be, free. Free to download, free to use, free to give to all your friends. Unlimited freedom, like the freedom we find in Christ.
