Tips For Creating A Great Church Facebook Page

Now that you’ve created a church Facebook page, it’s important to keep in mind some tips for making it successful:

Your church’s Facebook page is a public face of your church, so it should be well designed and edited.

Before you create the page, think about your target audience – who will want to follow your page? – and what content they would find most compelling.

Then you can decide how to design the page, choose a profile picture, and write a headline that makes people want to learn more. When choosing a profile picture, use the pastor’s face. People want to connect with people, not logos.

Be sure to post interesting content regularly – for example, share prayer requests with your community, encourage them with bible verses or quotes from sermons, etc. Whatever you do, do not make it a church announcement board or just a meme dump. Make your content ministry to your community.

Let your personality shine through in all of your posts – do you have a sense of humor? show it! Are you a little more serious? Tone it down a bit. But be sure to stay true to your church’s personality.

Encourage people to interact with your page. Ask questions, start discussions, and let people know that they can share their thoughts and feelings.

Be sure to respond to comments and messages, even if it’s just to say thank you. People will appreciate the personal touch.

Make sure your Facebook page is linked to your website and other social media platforms. This will help people find you online and increase your reach.

Make your Facebook page about the needs of the community. If you post a devotion, then let it target the needs of the lost in your community. Don’t post for the church’s sake, post for the communities sake.

When it comes to design, think simple. Keep the page easy to navigate and use a lot of white space to keep the focus on your content.

Think about creating a Facebook group for your church as well. This can be a great way to connect with people who are not yet active members of your congregation.

The bottom line is that a well-designed, interesting, and interactive Facebook page can help you build relationships with your community and share the gospel message. So don’t wait – get started today!

Church Facebook Page Post Schedule

Use the following schedule to help you come up with ideas for your Facebook page post. You can post this schedule on your wall to help remind you of what needs to be posted.

Sunday

Post your church live stream.

Monday

Post something that encourages them to practice a spiritual discipline like prayer. Similar to this one we got from Nucleus.

Tuesday

Post a scripture reading. Something that gets them into God’s word.

Wednesday

Post a short inspiring quote from the Sunday message.

Thursday:

Post a meme that targets a felt need of your community. Like overcoming fear, or loneliness, etc. Include how Jesus can help them overcome their need.

Friday:

Ask an engaging question, like what is their favorite worship song, or even less spiritual things like best thanksgiving dish.

Saturday 

Here is your chance to invite them to church. Use an image or video letting them know that they are wanted at your church.

Conclusion

Now that you know how and what to do it’s important that you start building your page. Don’t be discouraged if it doesn’t grow overnight. Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither will your church Facebook page. Just be diligent in your posting, and interacting with your community. It won’t take long before you see results.
