Did you personally use online tools to invite people to Christmas services?

you're invitedYesterday, we talked about what our churches did to promote their Christmas services.  But I believe even more important and effective than a church “promoting” its services is giving the people who are a part of the church tools that help them to invite their friends and family.

So, did you do any of the following…

  • Share on your Facebook wall a link to your church’s Christmas services?
  • Tweet about your church’s Christmas services?
  • Send a private Facebook or Twitter message to someone inviting them to a Christmas service?
  • Email someone asking them if they’d like to come to a Christmas service with you and include a link to your church’s website in the email?
  • Something else?

I shared on Facebook & Tweeted about our church’s Christmas concerts, but I’m a little embarrassed to say I didn’t personally invite anyone using these online tools.  How about you?

  1. Hey Paul,

    As the social media guy for @KACCchurch, I did my best to use KACC's Facebook Fan page and the church's Twitter account to get the word out.

    I would use my personal Twitter @mayheincrease to reach my followers as well as my personal Facebook page as well to spread the word.

    But, as you mentioned, I didn't send any direct, personal emails or invites. Next year that is something I will do. I'm also praying that with some current career moves, I will have more time to devote to all these tools in 2011!

    Happy New Year brother!

    In Christ,

    Joe
