By Christa Peck, SeaPres Communications
Many of the churches in our presbytery have started to make Facebook pages. Facebook is a great resource for a church - it can help you stay connected with current and former members, give prospective visitors a glimpse into the life of your congregation to see if it's a community where they might thrive, and it allows people a way to communicate both with your church and with other members. 'Liking' the pages of other churches is a great way to see what great things other churches are doing, and perhaps find inspiration for events or ministries you'd like to recreate at your own church.
Below are a list of links that you may find helpful, both in understanding the possible benefits to your church having a Facebook presence, as well as a three-part series about how to actually create a page (it's long because of all the pictures, not because it's complicated!).
- How to make a Facebook page - parts one, two, and three.
- How does your church use Facebook?
- How your church can effectively use social media.
- How can a Facebook page help your church?
- How to use Facebook at your church.
- Advice about effective use and good practices on Facebook (and with all your communication).
Here are the churches in the Seattle Presbytery with Facebook pages. If your church has a page and isn't on the list, please email me the link and I will add it!
