Social Media Resources for Advent
Still puzzled by how to use social media to engage your church community?
Still perplexed by how to market your church without spending a boat-load of cash?
Still wondering how to invite those nine-in-ten Americans who say they celebrate Christmas to your church this Advent?
Pastors and churches across the country want answers to all of these questions and more, but effective strategies seem nearly impossible to find on a limited church budget.
Here at SALT, we've come up with an idea to help churches across the country (and beyond!) solve these problems with style and grace: SALT's Customizable Short Films. With SALT, church growth, social media, and beautiful church marketing during the holy season of Advent are within the reach of just about every church's budget, large or small.
As you may have noticed, many tech-savvy churches are using short films on their websites, in worship, and on social media - but these films typically cost buckets of money to produce. SALT’s Customizable Short Films, on the other hand, are beautifully produced, inspiring, and cost just a few hundred dollars (and sometimes less because, in special cases, we use a pay-what-you can model!). As a production company with a heart, it's our mission to give even the smallest churches the opportunity to strengthen their outreach with inclusive, justice-oriented, beautiful short films.
And here's the best news of all: we have a new customizable short film ready for Advent 2016:
One more important thing to add: your Advent Calendar Customizable Short Film comes with a free printable version of the lovely, indigo-blue, illustrated calendar shown in the film! This year's calendar was illustrated Penelope Dullaghan, an award-winning illustrator who has worked with Crate & Barrel, the New York Times, Starbucks, Oprah Magazine, Target, Vegetarian Times, Papyrus, Panera Bread Company, and more!
We think this gem of a calendar would be perfect to reproduce en masse for everyone in your church to practice their faith at home with simple acts - day by day - until God's new world is born on Christmas Eve.
Here are a few stills from the shoot to give you a glimpse of the calendar's content:

Remember: your church has the ability to reach out and share God’s good news of hope, peace, joy, and love that is still slipping into the world. Don't miss out!
