Social Media Engagement

Good afternoon, church family! I just wanted to take a few moments to talk to you about social media. Now, before you swipe away this email, I hope you’ll read on for just a few seconds longer. I think we’d all agree that our church is involved in some pretty amazing things. Whether it is a powerful joint worship with our friends at Second Baptist, a ramp being built for someone in need, or perhaps a weekly Bible study taking place on campus, we often have something awesome happening here. If you are like me, you want other people to know how much you love this place, its people, and the mission that is undertaken here. One of the best ways to do this is by sharing our story on social media like Facebook and Instagram. That is what I want to talk about. When you see a post from the main church accounts, I would ask you to please hit the like button, drop a quick comment, or share it to your own page. When looking at the analytics of how far our posts reach, it is truly incredible the difference that is made when those simple actions have taken place. Engagement encourages engagement. If we can give a post a good jumpstart on these platforms, it essentially tells Facebook and Instagram that they are posts worth popping up on other people’s screens. Let’s work together to show others what an amazing place this is for worship, service, and community!
