Purpose

  • To effectively communicate the message of Jesus Christ.

Strategies

The South Shore UMC Communications and Public Relations Team will serve as the news gathering and distribution point for the Church. We will inform, connect, and engage in news and happenings relevant to the mission and ministry of the Church. We are committed to provide:

  • Communications that share a variety of ministry events, needs, activities, and opportunities that is packaged for presentation to the congregation and the community. 

  • Deliver content periodically, telling the story of SSUMC. 

  • Marketing for new initiatives, with a focus on public relations to those outside of our church, while managing the Church's image and brand. 

  • Interpret the life and work of SSUMC to the wider community through public communications media.
