LCC launches Operation Holy Week

March 23, 2010 One Comment

Recent surveys in the US have indicated that a significant number of people don’t know what Easter is or means. We suspect it is similar in Canada.

Beginning today, March 23, Lutheran Church–Canada wants to help address this situation and we need your help.

“Check out this video and share it!”

Using your e-mail list, website, Facebook or other social media site, we want to share President Bugbee’s Youtube explanation of Easter, Good news from the cemetery, with as many people as possible.

It’s as simple as sharing this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3iM_4niqVeU by copying and pasting it into an e-mail or on your website or in a Facebook message.

Then ask people to share the link too. The viewing statistics tell us that many who have viewed the video arrived at the site through the recommendation of another person!

As the network of contacts and viewers expands, the number of viewers grows and there is the potential for the video to “go viral.”

 LCC is also running ads on Facebook. The ad reads: “Have you ever wondered What is Easter? Click here to find out.” Clicking the ad sends the viewer to a page with an explanation of Easter aimed at the un-churched (www.whatiseaster.ca ), and an invitation to remember Good Friday and celebrate Easter at a Lutheran Church–Canada congregation. You can add this link to your website or online communication too.

Use your church sign, website, e-mail signature or any other communication to advertise www.whatiseaster.ca

Sharing the Easter message gives you an opportunity to share what you believe and could open doors for more discussion and witnessing about Jesus’ resurrection and yours.
