God calls us to reach every nation with the gospel. Western culture is driven greatly by media and electronic social networking. We hold a high value on the opportunities we see to impact our electronic sub-cultures, by sharing the gospel through shared means of communication.
Electronic social media content will last forever, and as such we want to utilize it to communicate biblical truth that also lasts forever. You will see our use of media as a connection point to the people inside and outside of Grace Community Church. We stream our sermons to our website, and have people currently connecting in from four different countries. Our profile-based social media websites are accessed from over 20 countries around the world. These numbers continue to grow, so we will continue to utilize these means of communication.
Instagram is a fun, fast and simple way to share your life through photos and short videos. Take a picture, add a filter if you’d like, and instantly share it for all your Instagram followers to see. Instagram is a creative visual tool for users to stay connected with friends and family.
Facebook is one of the largest social networking sites on the Internet. Users create a profile page, and then connect it with the profile pages of their friends and family. They can share status updates, event invites, photos, videos, notes, and links to other websites.
Twitter is a social networking and microblogging website. It allows users to “tweet” or broadcast brief messages on their profile page. Users are able to connect with others by subscribing and receiving these short updates; becoming a “follower” of a desired Twitter account does this.
What are Hashtags?
Several social media sites allow users to connect with others through the use of hashtags. Hashtags are represented by a pound sign (#) attached to keywords or topics. They create an easy way to connect similar content.
