Find-A-Church allows churches to introduce themselves to the community. By keeping the church’s profile current, seekers will more easily find and connect with a church. The Find-A-Church profile serves as a powerful on-line tool for evangelism. Connect via the web with busy people in the community on their terms, on their time and in their comfort zone.
Churches with out of date information mean that seekers will not learn much about the church and the “doors” that can lead them to a congregation. Find-A-Church has almost 35,000 UM Church profiles gaining more than 12, 000 page views daily. When churches keep their Find-A-Church profiles current, they can:
- Welcome visitors personally to the congregation
- Display the church’s ministries and activities
- Introduce members
- List worship schedules
- Link to the church’s website for a closer look.
To learn about maximizing a church’s Find-A-Church profile, visit: www.umcom.org/rethinkchurch and select “Get Involved”. A PDF and videos are available to guide churches through updating their profile.
