I’ve never worked with ME-1s but just like any other I/O patching if you don’t have ALL your changes saved before loading another show, they’ll be gone when you reload it. I would guess that this is what happened to you.

It takes a few seconds to load a show, and I wouldn’t trust the console to pass audio while that process happens. Instead I think you should be using scenes all saved in the same show file. There are only a few things (like PAFL settings, custom meters) that are saved on a per-show basis, while everything else including fader assignments and I/O patching is saved per-scene. So, uh, be careful that your current *scene* is saved before recalling another one. Also, I’d recommend that you read up on recall filters–you may not, for example, want to have the scene recall for the second service erase tweaks to preamp gain or EQ that you’ve made during the first service on a pastor’s mic if it’s the same pastor for the second service.

Libraries are saved per-show, but you can also load and save libraries to a USB key if it’s necessary to transfer them between shows. In our church we rotate through for bands (one per week) with dedicated operators for each band so each op has his own show file but we keep some common libraries for things like headset mics on the USB key that lives in the console.
