This week we have launched a media blitz on TV and Internet advertising the United Methodist Church in the Spartanburg District. Using the General Church’s “Rethink Church” videos, the ads will run from December 9th through 29th. The ads will be shown in markets that reach throughout Spartanburg, Union and Cherokee Counties, with some spillover into adjoining areas. In each spot (15 seconds on TV, 30 seconds on Internet), a tag line will direct viewers to log in to our District website to find a church near them.
We plan to repeat the effort around Easter time, so in January and February we will be offering hospitality training to pastors and leaders in our congregations. Be on the lookout for announcements of those upcoming events.
