A STATEMENT ABOUT SOCIAL MEDIA AT ST. MARTIN'S
We encourage the St. Martin’s community to keep in touch with us and with each other throughout the week! Social media is a great tool for extending our time together beyond regular services and the occasional special event, as well as sharing our congregation with those who might be seeking a church home. Everyone in the church community is welcome to participate on our social media sites. We ask that, as you post and share online, you keep in mind the mission of the Church – “…to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ” (The Book of Common Prayer, p. 855) – and the four guiding principles of St. Martin’s Episcopal Church – Worship, Stewardship, Community, and Outreach. Every member of our church community is vital to the well-being of our community of believers, and all should see themselves as communicators of the church. Read our entire Social Media Policy.
