Social Media 101

Think of social media as the new town square. According to the latest social media statistics, 81% of the U.S. population has a social media account – that amounts to about 264 million people. Your parishioners are here. People needing God are here. And your church needs to be here, too. We’ll discuss best practices, good guidelines, and creative ideas for getting out the Good News.
