One personal way to reach out on social media is by posting a video inviting friends to Easter (this is especially great for Instagram stories, but it could be a Facebook or Instagram post as well). It doesn’t need to be long or elaborate – just authentic to you! Here are some ideas to get you started.
1. (sitting in your living room) “Hey friends! Easter is still happening this year—and I’ll be celebrating right here! Will you join me at Eastminster Church online? Check out service times at eastminster.org and let me know when you’ll be watching!”
2. “Easter is this week! This week! I can’t wait to celebrate the hope of Jesus, especially at a time like this. Join me online for service at eastminster.org”
3. “Hi friends! I am so excited to celebrate the good news that Jesus is alive. Especially in the midst of so much uncertainty and pain. I’m watching Easter service online this weekend, can you join me? All the details are at eastminster.org—let’s watch together!”
