Keeping the Lines of Communication Open
Although it is currently necessary for us to be physically distanced, we want to stay closely connected as a church family. Visit the News section of our website to learn about other ways you can stay informed. Most recently, we added a weekend e-newsletter to provide you with weekend worship information, resources, and other upcoming events and opportunities.
Check Your Email Frequently. This is one of the best ways for the church to reach large groups and the full congregation.\
Stay Open to Receiving Texts. When necessary, the church will use group texting to send out urgent messages, as we did a few weeks ago to let you know that on-site services were canceled.
Visit Our Website Often. We are updating information on the home page of our website frequently. When you click on the block titled “Livestream” there is a direct connection to the current and upcoming live broadcasts. The block labeled as “Worship” provides easy access to prior broadcasts of livestreamed sermons, corresponding bulletins and announcements, resources for worship, and Prayer and Praise services. We are adding information to the three columns labeled Resources and News often and adding recordings of our Sermons as usual. When you click one of the titles under any of these three columns and open a file, you can scroll to the bottom of the page and subscribe to receive email notifications when we post something new.
Subscribe to Our YouTube Channel. Stay on top of everything new we post to YouTube and get notifications when a livestream is about to start by subscribing to our YouTube Channel.
Use Facebook and Instagram. The church will be posting updates on our Facebook and Instagram accounts, and whether you are a fan of social media or not, we would challenge the First Pres family to sign on, even if for this short period of time, to receive updates from your church family and help raise social media to a higher level. We can do this by sharing First Pres posts with friends who may not attend church, or posting some of your favorite Bible verses, positive quotes, and encouraging messages with others. Follow our Facebook page by searching for First Presbyterian Church of Augusta, and follow us on Instagram by searching @firstpresaugusta.
