Free Screen Saver Downloads

The free screen saver(s) offered on our website are provided for free and are not to be sold or distributed without permission. Occasionally, we offer these screen savers to help promote awareness of our ministry and encourage people to pray for us. These screen savers are designed to work on modern Microsoft Windows® based computers and will not work properly on a Apple (Mac) computer. All photos used in the creation of our screen saver(s) are either licensed under the Creative Commons Zero license or are photos taken locally by our ministry and have appropriate permissions secured.

Our screen savers are created with a professional screen saver producer (software) and should work well on any Microsoft based computer platform including Windows® 10, 8, 7, Vista, or XP. However, you use the screen saver(s) at your own risk as we cannot supply technical help in the unlikely event that a screen saver does not work well on your specific computer. Also know that the screen saver(s) can be uninstalled through your computer control panel, in case you do not want to use it (them) any longer.
