Acts 1:8 – “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
As Christians, we are called to go forth with the gospel, spreading it to neighbors and nations. We have outreach ministries to our local community in the San Gabriel Valley and throughout Southern California, as well as to the global community.

One Great Hour of Sharing
Peace & Global Witness
Social networking is woven into the fabric of our culture and has arrived as a driving force in sharing the gospel, building relationships, and meeting new people. The beauty of using social media as a church is that every member of our community is already empowered to spread the word naturally, online and offline, through networks of relationships. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other tools are merely making that task easier.
Here are ten ways you can help Praise Community Church anytime to build relationships and share the gospel.
- “Like” us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and Instagram.
- Click the sharing links on our message content, devotionals, and various website pages.
- “Check in” on Facebook every time you are at Praise Community Church or an event we are hosting. More of your friends will see this than most of the other things you are posting.
- Click “like” on posts you see on Facebook by Praise Community Church, which helps our content spread further to be seen by others. Facebook’s algorithm shows people what it thinks is most “relevant,” and it makes that determination partly based on the number of likes, comments, and shares a post has received.
- Write a review of us on Facebook and give us five stars! It helps us come up in search results for churches in the area and it’s a brief, simple way to share a piece of your experience with others.
- Take photos and videos at church and church-related events, then post them to Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, etc. You can also email them to our church email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Post, as a tweet or Facebook status update, a short quote from a sermon, or a lyric from a song we are singing, and put #praisecommunitychurch in your post.
- Invite people to Praise Community Church events using your social networks.
- Help us to follow you on social networks! Email us links to your social profiles and we will follow you.
- Write your faith story, or let us do a video interview with you, to share your faith with all kinds of people. Send to email@example.com.
Bonus: If you really want to go the extra mile to help us spread the word on Facebook, you can cruise over to our main Facebook page, mouse over the “Liked” button and choose to “Get Notifications.” Every time we add an update to our page, you will get a Facebook notification (not an email) about it and you will be able to click on it, “Like” it, “Share” it, etc.
