New Covenant on Social Media
New Covenant on Social Media
We have made a couple changes to the ways that we are using social media and thought that this would be a good time to give a brief explanation of ways that you can benefit from these.
Instead of posting our weekly articles in the Newsletter format, we will be posting our weekly articles directly to our blog. We will also create weekly posts with links to the sermons and with our Preparation for Sunday Worship which will list the sermon passage and a link to our worship songs. The reason for putting all of this on the blog is that if some of you use a blog reader, all of this content can be found in one feed.
Spotify- Worship Songs
We are going to transition to using Spotify instead of YouTube for our songs. There are two main reasons for this:
1) Spotify ensures that artists get paid when people listen to their songs.
2) Once you start using Spotify, you will see that it is much better than YouTube for listening to songs.
If you don't use Spotify, when you click on the link below it will prompt you to create an account and download Spotify. The free version is fine; you will just have to listen to a commercial after every 5 or 6 songs. Spotify also works well on mobile devices like phones or iPads. You can download the app and set up a free account. We have created two Spotify Playlists. One is called Sunday Morning Worship. If you "follow" it, it will automatically update each week (hopefully on Monday or Tuesday) with the songs for the following Sunday. The other playlist is called New Covenant Favorites. We will try to gradually add to this list most of the songs that we sing at New Covenant.
Then throughout your week, or on your drive to the worship services on Sunday morning, you can listen through the playlist and be ready to sing out on Sunday.

CCB- Church Community Builder
If you are a member or regular attender of our church, you should be using CCB. This is our online directory. You can use this to get contact information for someone in the church, or to pray through the directory. We also use it to create different ministry groups for scheduling and announcements. If you don’t have an account, click on “sign up” and we will set you up with an account.
If you don’t use Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, please don’t think that you need to sign up for them. Our purpose for posting on those three platforms is to serve those who are already using them.
On Facebook, we will be posting announcements, sermons, and articles. Facebook makes it difficult for “pages” created by businesses or churches to show up in your Facebook feed. If you want to make sure that you see what we are posting, go to our page, click the drop down box on “liked,” and turn on all notifications.
If you have suggestions for additional ways that we can be helpful on social media or if you have any questions, email Dan Leeper at firstname.lastname@example.org
