Grace FB

One of the outreach ideas that we have had in the Evangelism committee is the use of Facebook. It is 2018 after all and social media is extremely popular. I have a Facebook account and am “friends” with quite a few members of the congregation and there is probably quite a few more that I’m not connected to as of yet. More importantly, think of the vast number of people we can reach by totaling up the connections of everyone in our congregation. Even I have around 250 friends on my list and no, I didn’t have to pay them. Also, it’s free! If we would “check-In” for church or any church related events or “share” the events the Grace page posts, we could reach hundreds of people. In one of my Outreach readings this month, they stated that social media and texting is the best way to attract younger people. My goal is to help grow our church and I’m welcoming of any and all suggestions.
