Facebook competitions are a fun and easy way to connect with families in your community.

Challenge your church families, neighborhood or the entire community and beyond.

Competitions are easy to create, easy to host and easy to manage.

You may have to host one or two before you get people in the habit of checking your Facebook page on a regular basis. 

 

Hosting competitions will draw people to your Facebook page where they will learn more about your church...and hopefully, make a connection. However, the main purpose is to draw families closer together...including your own church families. Families will work together as a team to complete the competitions.

You can host any type of competition that you wish. You are only limited by your imagination. Start by checking your calendar for various seasons or holidays. You will come up with lots of great ideas by looking at each month.

Basis Competition Information

  • Create a flyer or Facebook slide

  • Post your competition flyer or Facebook slide on your Facebook page. Make sure to add all details to your post...such as start and ending date. etc.

  • Adding  "OPEN TO THE PUBLIC" AND "DO NOT HAVE TO BE PRESENT TO WIN" are important things to add to your post.

  • Do a Facebook flash...which simply means that everyone opens their phones and shares your post at the same exact time. You can do this during announcement time if you are allowed to do so. Just ask everyone to get out their phones and lead them through it. 

  • Ask all members to share your post with family and friends

  • Send a flyer home with each child

  • Have flyers at the information desk for families to take and share.

  • Post your flyer on all FREE community Facebook pages.

  • Purchase prizes... these can be as simple or as elaborate as your budget will allow. A basket (or two...or even three...if you want to pass out first, second and third place prizes) filled with "seasonal items" is a great gift idea. Note: I have found that a 5 gallon bucket works great as an alternative to a basket...they come in many colors and cost only $2-3 at Wal-Mart) 

  • Families will compete in the competition, take pics of their adventure and share 2-3 with you via text.

  • All pics will go on Facebook and a winner will be announced.

  • Post the winner's names on-line. 

  • Winners will pick up their prize at the church. Make sure to take their pics with their prizes and post on-line. 

  • Make sure to thank each of your entries and invite them to church on Sunday. 

  • Make sure to remind them to watch for more competitions coming soon.
