Social Media Guidelines

“Being in covenant community in the virtual community of social media.

The Church of Jesus Christ has always been an epistolatory community. We are a going and telling faith. The earliest church communicated through the written word – the media of that era – bringing the body of Christ together when worshippers could not be together bodily. We lift up many of the early epistles as scripture.

Social media can build up community or undermine community. Like any communication social media can bring people together and enrich the dialogue among those participating. It is also important to be aware that what is written lacks the social nuances of words spoken in person and that thoughts written in haste or even in jest have a life of their own in the internet.”
