CWS Podcast – Ep. 69: Church Websites that Help the Community

cws-podcast-logoChurches often help their local community, but their websites often just display evidence of that help. Why not directly help the community right on your website? Yes you should focus on recruiting new members, but we should also strive to love our neighbors. This is content that will let visitors know that your church cares about the community. Plus, it should rank well in local search engine results.

Topics covered include

  • Single Parents
  • Addicts
  • New Residents

Action Item

Examine where your church can help your local community. What is the least churched demographic in your area and how can you help them? Sometimes an indirect means of converting people is more effective. It is far easier to invite someone to accept Christ’s gift of salvation when you have already won them over with love.
