Using social media

Are you interested in using social media to share Christian Science?

We invite you to watch the video replay (see below) of this workshop held during Annual Meeting weekend, Saturday, June 2, 2012. It includes an overview of social media—what it is, why people are using it, and how it works. We look at how The Mother Church is using social media, including successes by the Committee on Publication and The Christian Science Monitor. We also look at how branches and individuals are using social media, and attendees had an opportunity to come up with new ideas together. You might consider watching the video with others in your church community and use it as a springboard for further discussion.
