This Christmas season, it’s quite likely that the majority of your interaction with your women will have to take place online.
Between dropping temperatures and covid safety concerns, many of us are back to primarily interacting online.
As our women tire of zoom meetings and struggle with covid-fatigue, staying connected becomes that much more challenging.
Yet, we’re all weary and in need of a little extra encouragement and Jesus.
How can we feed the souls of our women and ourselves?
I know none of us want to add one more thing to our to-do list.
I’m here to help.
I want to encourage you to post one thing a day on social media.
That’s it. Just one thing. And I’m going to share a list of ideas to keep it simple.
Whether you’ve already set up a social media account for your women’s ministry, mom’s group, or Bible study or not, staying connected using online tools is easier than you may think.
Posting just one question, graphic, quote, or Scripture each day will invite your women to connect and focus on Christ this Christmas.
You can do this! It’s not as hard as you may think.
Let’s take this step-by-step.
What tools should you use?
While not all of your women use social media, most do. Focusing your efforts on the social media channel where most of your women already hang out will make it easiest for them to engage.
It’s most likely that’s Facebook. If your group skews younger, it may be Instagram. Survey your women if you’re not sure.
I strongly suggest using a closed Facebook group instead of a Facebook page. You’ll find more people see group posts than page posts. For more information on how to set up a Facebook group, check out this post here.
How often should you post?
As I mentioned above, I recommend you post once a day. If your Social Media Coordinator feels up to the task, try adding a second post each day to see if the level of engagement increases.
To make things easy, I’ve created a Christmas Social Media Calendar that you can download for free that will help you decide what to post each day. I want to make this easy for you.
What should you post?
If we want our women to keep their eyes on Christ this Christmas season, most of our posts should be religious. I recommend sprinkling in some fun Christmas icebreaker questions too. You may find your women’s answers are more spiritual than you expect!
- Christmas-themed icebreaker questions
- Spiritual Christmas icebreaker questions
- Scripture verses
- Scripture readings
- Random Acts of Christmas suggestions
It sounds like lots of work, I know! Remember, I’m here to help.
Below you’ll find six free graphics that you may download and use. All I ask is that you please do not alter them in any way. You have permission to share them with your group on social media. Right-click on the image to save the image to your device.
But that’s only one week’s worth of posts. What if I want more?
I’ve got you covered for that too!

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9.
Rather than view posting on social media this Christmas season as one more thing to do, I pray we’ll see it as an opportunity to maintain and grow the connections among our women.
We all need a little extra hope this season.
