8 Social Media Posts Your Church Should Try

TheCreativePastor.com – 8 Social Media Posts Your Church Should Try

Since social media has become a part of the daily lives of so many people, there is such an incredible opportunity for the local church to use this tool for outreach. In fact, because it’s a part of people’s daily routines, it’s really the perfect tool for connecting with people throughout the week.

I love using social media in our ministry because it’s not only a chance to show people outside our congregation what we’re all about, but it gives our church family something to get excited about Monday through Saturday. And, when your congregation is excited about church, they’re much more likely to spread the word to their friends, neighbors, and coworkers.

When it comes to getting started with social media, one of the hardest tasks is coming up with what to actually say. So, to make things easier for you to begin posting, here are eight kinds of social media posts that have worked well for our church. We use these images on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. I would also encourage you that you do not have to use images. It may be a great option for you to start by using text posts to get things off of the ground.

Have you used any of these posts at your church? Do you have any others that you’d add to the list? Let me know in the comments below!

1. The “Sermon Quote”

2. The “#SundaySetlist”

Five Creative Ministry Tips: 10/9/2014

TheCreativePastor.com – Five Creative Ministry Tips: 10/9/2014

Every week, we’re excited to share a five-pack of useful tips for those serving in creative ministry! Each Thursday, we post practical advice on topics such as media, social networking, design, and marketing. While these tips may be simple, they have the potential to radically improve your church. These images are Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram ready, so help us spread the word by sharing them with your followers!

Providing sermon audio on your church's website and social pages is valuable for both your congregation and newcomers. Don't have the resources to create custom images for your church's social pages? Standard photos will still add value to your text posts.
Downloading cool, new fonts is great, but don't get carried away. Only use 1-2 typefaces per design and keep it simple. Make profile images and cover photos available to your congregation so that it's easy for them to promote events on their social pages. It's impossible to improve every area of your ministry this week, but you can do something. Consistent improvements make a big impact over time.
