When we want to connect with parents of the kids in our ministry, it makes sense to go where they already are. That’s why strategically using social media platforms to communicate with parents makes so much sense.
Simply copy and paste these prepared posts in your ministry’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts each day. Or, schedule your Facebook and Twitter posts using the application Hootsuite.
These posts are designed to review the lesson, so plan for them to appear in your ministry’s social media accounts after you’ve taught the lesson in your ministry.
Also, if you share social media accounts with other ministries in your organization, coordinate with them to develop a plan for when to schedule posts and how to designate the intended audience.
If Pampers and Goldfish are more your speed, check out our First Look blog for the social media plan to connect parents with preschoolers: http://orangeblogs.org/firstlook
