St. Matthew Lutheran Church-LCMS
The Outreach Committee has stepped onto a bold new horizon in which StMt has never ventured... it's not a Star Trek episode, but pretty exciting, still, to expand StMt's presence on the world-wide web. Each week, Pastor Mohr's sermon will be videoed and posted to the St. Matthew Lutheran Church-LCMS-Conway AR Facebook page. The first trial run was posted Sunday, August 27 simultaneously with the same video posted to YouTube with a close-captioned option. For the week of August 26- September 1, from the video posted, two of StMt's members "shared" the video to their own page or to a friend's Facebook page so visibility was on 3 FB pages which resulted in one new "like" to the StMt. page. This reached 207 people, posts engaged 148 people and the video was viewed by 110 people for 3 seconds or more. The Outreach Committee chair is looking into a shorter link to search the YouTube post, however there were 16 views last week so it's a start!
Support your Outreach Committee's efforts. View the sermon post, "Share" the sermon post, "Like" the sermon post, digest the sermon post, take the opportunity to view it again during the week, comment on it. The more traffic this receives, the more it will circulate through the world-wide web and it is just another opportunity to "go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation." Mark 16:15. If you are shy, this gives you an opportunity to let Pastor Mohr do the preaching if you will do the sharing!
