“With congregations unable to meet in person, you may feel pressured by the technology and skills that you feel you ought to have,” said an announcement. “This webinar will ask you to consider your ‘why,’ focusing on skills and assets you already have and the needs of your group. We will look at some of the most popular social media tools such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube, with practical tips on setting up, scheduling, and using them.”

Jan Fischer Bachman is web producer for the Church of the Brethren. She has broadcast on Facebook Live for the denomination as well as her home congregation, Oakton Church of the Brethren in Vienna, Va. “And, yes,” the announcement added, “she has managed to take inadvertent selfies and shots featuring her fingers while live.”
