1. Get Hosting At a Professional Blog Builder
A blog builder will give you all the tools necessary to make an attractive, easy to read and create professional blog.

2. Post Weekly Events
Is someone getting married? What about baptisms or a new member or birth announcement? With a community church blog people feel good seeing they were recognized as well as informed. If there is a potluck bible study meeting, you can send a shout out for what is needed. Create a calendar for people to look ahead for future events.
3. Start a Conversation
Often times members of a church feel shy about voicing opinions. When you start a conversation on a church blog, you can open up a forum for people to share their thoughts, offer hope or suggestions, advice and even bible verses. Here are a couple discussion ideas to break the ice to even the shyest members:
