    How to Create a Website & Facebook Page

    You don't have to be that computer savvy in order to create a website or Facebook page for your church. There are plenty of free or low-cost website templates out there (some are better than others depending on your needs) where you just plug in the information that you want to share.

    When it comes to creating either a website or Facebook page, make sure there is more than one administrator on the account. That means, have at least two if not three people updating content either the Facebook page or website. Creating a web presence is easy. It's difficult having the web presence removed or taken down.
