- All Day
Social Media Sunday became a viral national Episcopal event in 2014. This year on Sunday, October 25, St. Paul’s will join churches of all denominations in sharing our story online and inviting others to come and see what’s special about our parish!
On October 25, St. Paul’s Youth Minister Miguel Covarrubias will lead a short class called Social Media 101 at 10 a.m. in the Dining Room. Miguel will cover the basic social media platforms and how each is best used; plus, he will give us tips on how to share our church community online. Feel free to bring your devices and questions.
Visit our “help desk” in Tucker Hall (available all morning) to put what you learn into practice! We will be helping you post photos and tweet prayers — always using the hashtags #SMS15 and #stpaulscle. Come and learn how to get the cool Church Life app that will connect you to your fellow parishioners on your phone.
More about Social Media Sunday:
Social Media Sunday was started by Carolyn Clement at Trinity Episcopal Church in Tariffville, Connecticut, in June 2013. It was developed to:
- encourage social media use by and within churches not yet using social networking platforms;
- boost social media participation within churches already using social networking platforms; and
- demonstrate the power of social media to be Christ’s online presence at church and in between times of gathering.
Social Media Sunday became a viral national Episcopal event in 2014, and this year on Sunday, October 25, churches of all denominations have been invited to participate in Social Media Sunday.
The hashtag #SMS15 is used in each post or tweet on Social Media Sunday with the hope that the topic will trend on popular social media sites, thus widening our reach as proclaimers of the Gospel in the world.
Come see what we have planned at St. Paul’s to help you participate in this ecumenical effort!
