Churches use social media to spread word
from Tri-city Herald
Pastor Keith Coffey of Quinault Baptist Church in Kennewick, Wash., had a conversation about some Bible passages last week with a few churchgoers. He also asked for prayer requests, reminded people it was Holy Week and pointed out an article he liked in
The Christian Science Monitor
. And he did it all online through Facebook. Coffey's church is one of several in the Tri-Cities, Wash., area that's tapping into social media like Facebook and Twitter to share news about events, strengthen community and spread the Christian message. Pastors say technology shouldn't replace going to services and spending time with people in fellowship, but it can be a way to enhance connections.
