Pastor Keith Anderson recently blogged about his church’s new practice of putting up a slide on his church’s screen encouraging people to post on different social networking platforms that they are at church.
What this is encouraging is making church, our Christian disciplines, an ordinary part of our regular lives just like you update on other events during the week. It is another way of spreading information about your church. Evangelism. Of being inserted into the 21st century.
If your church uses a pew-sheet rather than a screen, a similar notice can be put on that. If your church encourages silence and switching off cell phones as you come into the worship space, you could encourage people to update after the service – with a similar notice to that effect.
Pastor Keith: “Thanks to this little slide our social media engagement has exploded.”
