Social media is a powerful tool that your church can use to reach people inside and outside of your congregation. Whether it be Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Snapchat, each platform can be incredibly useful for touching lives and promoting your ministry.
For most churches that I talk to, it’s not a lack of desire that keeps them from regularly posting on their social pages, but a lack of content. Have you ever been confused or frustrated about what to post on your church’s social pages? It definitely can be overwhelming to come up with new ideas every week, right?
Here are some fresh ideas from some of my favorite churches to look to for social media inspiration. Let me know which ones are your favorites in the comments below.

Great post, it go to my favorites
Great ideas!! Thanks for the post!
Great stuff! I already do some of this!
Solid, Kendall. I’ve found that my church loves when we post anything with people (we ARE the church, huh!?), the Worship Band, or solid sermon points/quotes.
This reminds me to schedule up more, with the variety of ideas you’ve shared here.
Yes! These are great, Rob! :)
This is a so helpful! We forget sometimes how powerful social media is. Thanks for the reminder and examples.
Thank you for the great ideas! My fav is #20. We get so wrapped up with ops that we forget the promo!
We have begun to do small profiles on some of our faithful volunteers on Facebook and Instagram and it is good to see how the congregation is uplifting and encouraging the people we are profiling by affirming how helpful they are or how they always have a smile…etc.
I love this idea, Roschelle! We, as people, as humans, love to be uplifted whether we proclaim it publicly or wish for it silently. I am a strong believer of encouragement for I may be the only person that says Good morning beautiful to someone who may be having a day of doubt for life and those 3 words causes them to look in the mirror. I absolutely love this idea!!! Thank youb
That’s a great idea!
I love them all. I think my favorite is the Sunday recaps
Thanks Kendall. These are great ideas that will go a long way in making our social media posts more diverse and interesting.
wow, thanks for sharing these ideas, I’ve had difficulties creating posts on my church platform. Now i have options on where to start.
Social media is really an effective tool nowadays. I really think that Beautiful and uplifting sermons right here are really needed! I really rely on Sermons like this and the ones by Keion Henderson, https://www.keionhenderson.com/ to really get through most difficult of days!
Social networking has so many wonderful uses! Respectable churches should take care to control their online presence and activity. The best churches, like https://lhhouston.church/, don’t have sermons and podcasts available online, right? They are communicating with their church members and contacting more individuals than ever before utilizing technology, and I have to admit, they are doing an outstanding job of it!
