The use of communication tools like a website and social media have become increasingly important to congregations. Reaching those in your community through these digital means can not only help lead people to you congregation’s door on Sunday mornings but more importantly be a vehicle to showcase community outreach programs that are available through your church.
This page is dedicated to assisting with many aspects of communications surrounding the life of the church. They represent some “best practices” that we have seen but are not necessarily policies that have been adopted by the Synod of the Trinity. These resources have been gathered through different entities associated with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) denomination as well as other outlets.
