“St. John’s Episcopal Church, Springfield Gardens, NY is now embracing a new Discipleship Tool – Social Media Networking” - Sharon Hunter

 

As Episcopalians (Anglicans) we believe in a full embrace of social media and web publishing phenomenon. St. John's will continue to utilize Social Media as a discipleship tool. The Church should look at these tools as a social evangelism asset - bringing people into the Church via the internet as well as in our Church building.

 

The goal is to expand the Sunday experience to the rest of the week by way of our Church's Website, Facebook Page, Instagram, Twitter discussions and the sharing of our Church activities via YouTube when possible.

 

Please visit our social media networks to learn more about our Church and to stay connected with our Church family. Our Social Media sites have assisted in bringing us new Church members and we intend to continue this trend in the years to come.

St. John’s Website

Our Website was established in 2005 and began reconstruction in 2018. This reconstruction endeavor took months to complete due to the total data on our website and will continue to be completed in waves. St. John’s website continues to expand its content and viewership. Our website is updated on a weekly basis with a variety of content.

 

If your ministry would like to add content on our Church’s website please contact, Sharon Hunter, St. John’s webmaster at webmaster@stjohns-springfieldgardensny.org or see me after mass on Sundays.
