"Engaging the culture is not explained by ministry methods or techniques. The church is called to reach people with the gospel. And, that calling must be embraced by all the members of the body of Christ." #preach #truth #faithperceptions http://bit.ly/2sZiB6r
We make it a point to ask our mystery guests to look for social media pages associated with the #church they'll be visiting. More often than not, we hear that a church's social media pages are either nonexistent or not up-to-date. #Socialmedia is a great way for churches to connect with their congregation and their #community . If you're not currently using social media (or if your social media could use some help), check out this great blog post by Sweet Tea Social Marketing with Heather Heuman. #faithperceptions http://www.sweetteasocialmarketing.com/church-increase-engagement-on-social-media/

The good news of Jesus can travel on both paper-bound #books , as well as glowing #digital screens. Perhaps, #smartphones and the social media apps that drive their use are incredible opportunities for us today—even within our very #worship services. Very interesting read from Sharefaith. What are your thoughts on using #technology to spread the word about our #church services and the #gospel itself? #faithperceptions http://bit.ly/2rwEjcS
"We live in a time when it does not take much to impress people. If we are hospitable, kind, generous, thoughtful or civil, people take notice. In a very similar way, when local churches work together, get along and actually like each other, people start talking." We love this post from @outreachmag. What are some other ways you can get the #community to notice your #church in a #positive way? #faithperceptions http://bit.ly/2qpJa2l
