Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snap Chat…the list of social media outlets seems endless! And
yet, today’s church needs to be part of this free and wildly popular method of communication.
Join us on Saturday, April 7, at Marquette Hope Connection Center from 9 a.m. to
12 p.m. as the Marquette District offers a hands-on workshop on using social media
for evangelism, and internal and external communications for your local church. The
workshop will be led by Mark Doyal, Michigan United Methodist Conference Director
of Communications and 2015 United Methodist Communicator of the Year. Learn what
social media to pay attention to and what to pass on. Share ideas with other ministries.
Invite an interested team from your church, and be sure to bring a laptop, and cellphone
cell phone with camera to learn how to set-up, plan and execute a social media ministry.
WIFI will be available at the workshop. Please RSVP to Pam Quayle, email@example.com
by Thursday, April 5.
