Facebook Event Policy
The Kingdom Social Media Team is in charge of making all events on Facebook for the kingdom. If you are an event steward, please submit your event copy via the instructions below, and then message the social media team on the kingdom Facebook page to be added as a co-host to the event.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please do not create your own events! If an event doesn't have a page yet, reach out to the social media team.
How to Submit Event Copy
Send ALL event copy as UNFORMATTED text within the body of an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. This makes sure that all the people that need the information receive it.
