Live-streaming worship services using Facebook Live is becoming more common among United Methodist churches — but Facebook Live doesn’t just belong in the sanctuary.
“Facebook presents an amazing opportunity for churches to reach out to the mission field. What is possible is only limited by a church’s imagination,” said Will Rice, director of communications and media support at the Rio Texas Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church. “What if churches were to share more of what the church is all about? We have an opportunity to not only stay more connected with our members but also to connect to new people in different ways.”
There are many ways to utilize Facebook Live beyond the worship service, all of which can help people learn about your church and its ministries. What stories do you need to share? What information would be helpful to your online congregation? To read more click here.
