Get Your Church on Facebook

Posted by Alison Kennedy 2 years ago 0

Facebook imageFacebook has over 500 Million active users! Is your church connecting to them?
Here are five ways that I’ve seen Facebook used at our church office to help connect to people at our church:
  • Event Planning and Organizing
  • Inviting Visitors to “like” your church connects them to your church.
  • Helps Members invite their friends in their social circle painlessly via an event.
  • Sharing Updates and Announcements
  • The pastor can share insights about the sermon or his/her blog can be imported.
If you dont have a church page – below is the step by step process of getting one. See you on Facebook!!
  1. Log in to your Facebook account (if you don’t have one, it takes five seconds to sign up for a free account), then go to Facebook.com/pages/create.php 
  2. On the “Create a Page” screen, select the category and subcategories your page will fit into. Peruse all the subcategories to determine the one that best describes your page.
  3. Name your page; choose wisely so people can find it. Think about character length.  Click “Publish” when you are ready for the page to go live.
  4. Choose a picture that represents your church, add some content in the status box and select any other adminstrators in the settings area.  
  5. Once you create a page and garner 25“fans,” get a username for your page: Facebook.com/Username. Usernames turn long URLS into memorable ones. Then use that URL everywhere to tell everyone about your church’s new Facebook page!

 Does your church have a Facebook page? How do you use it?
