Sermonade – Frequently Asked Questions
Welcome to our FAQ page where you can find the most frequently asked questions from our customers.
Our downloads are packed with essential, valuable items designed to save you tons of time:
- AUDIO SERMON RECORDINGS
We include MP3 audio recording of each sermon. We give you much more than just sermon notes! When you simply don't have time to sit and read through pages of notes, just listen to our powerful, engaging sermon recordings wherever you are — in the office, in the car, while jogging, in the shower... well, maybe not in the shower!
- WRITTEN SERMON NOTES
In addition to the audio files, you'll also receive the notes for each sermon. These are editable sermon notes that you can modify to your heart's content. We include each sermon in three different formats: Microsoft Word (docx), PDF and Plain Text (txt). Whatever computer platform you use (Mac, Windows or Linux), you'll be able to easily access the notes.
- SERMON ARTWORK GRAPHICS
Artwork for the sermon series is also included. The album cover displayed in our store is what you'll receive, except that our branding (Sermonade) and the number of sermons shown at the bottom will be removed so that you can add your own logo and make it yours. We provide this artwork in both jpg and png image formats.
- SERIES TITLE SLIDES
Also included are title slides for the sermon series, provided in both 16:9 and 4:3 screen sizes. So regardless of whether you still use the older 4:3 format, or you're on the newer 16:9 size, you'll be able to add this title slide without any fuss. These title slides are provided in jpg, png and Powerpoint (pptx) formats for maximum compatibility.
Phew! That's a lot of stuff! And to top it off, we include all this at extremely competitive and reasonable prices. We know what it's like to operate a church on a limited budget, and our aim is to assist you in your ministry with top-notch resources at a fair price. But we do have to pay the bills and eat, so, you know... we can't give everything away.
Fast. Really fast! That's how you'll receive them.
We provide all products as digital downloads. This means you won't ever have to pay any shipping charges and you'll never have to wait for days to get your hands on what you've ordered! After you complete the checkout process you'll immediately receive a private link (URL) that you can click to instanty download everything you purchased. This will be sent to you via email to the email address you provide at checkout.
Once you've downloaded your item(s) you can simply double-click on the file(s) to unzip them. (They are compressed to save download time, but some sermon series are still rather large files.) Double-clicking on the zip file will open it up and instantly expand all the contents into a folder with the name of the sermon series. Just open that folder to see all your files as described in our FAQ called: "What's included in each download?"
From that point, go nuts! You can move, rename or edit the files however you please, and you can use them multiple times in any venue within your organization (worship service, youth group, men's ministry, retreats, etc.) The only thing you are not permitted to do is share any of these files with anyone outside your church or organization. Hey, hey... come on now!
And yes, we know how exciting it can be to receive your brand new sermon series, so if you go a little too nuts and accidentally delete everything, you can always download it all again just by clicking on the link we sent you. We've got you covered!
Pastor Phil has always been very detailed in his sermon preparation and writing his sermon notes. You will find them easy to read through and find the sections you're looking for.
In his 20+ years of preaching, Pastor Phil has tried different formats for creating his sermon notes. You will receive his notes just as he originally created them, so there may be some variation in the layout from one series to another. However, each one is just as easy to read and will be as helpful to you as any of the others. Also, some sermons include the entire transcript rather than just the notes.
Here's a quick peek:
Our products are priced very competitively given the fact that we include audio recordings of every sermon, written sermon notes, multiple format graphics and title slides... but yes, we do run sales now and then. There will almost always be at least one sermon series on sale anytime you drop by. These change frequently, so grab them while you can. We also have huge storewide sales periodically which are always craaaazy deals! (Sorry... couldn't resist.) If you'd like to be the first to know when things go on sale, just sign up for our email offers and you'll be notified before everyone else. And just so you know, we hate spam as much as you do, so we promise we'll never bomard you with emails.
Everybody loves a good sale, so we'll do our best to help you get as many sermons as you can while keeping as many bucks in your pocket as possible (or pounds, or yen, or Bitcoin... can you keep Bitcoin in your pocket??) So sign up or check back often. We're working hard to make sure that Sermonade.com is the premier place in the world for pastors to get the finest teaching materials at the best possible prices!
