Hey everyone, welcome back to Serenity in The Spirit!
At the beginning of lock-down, in the weeks leading up to Easter, I was not using social media and when I came back it was nice to see such an encouraging environment. There were plenty of people sharing photos of the unusual fun they were having in this time: pictures of large group video calls to catch up with friends/family and a whole host of challenges including 'Run 5, Donate 5, Nominate 5' and 'The 30 Day Song Challenge'.
Now, i'm not massively keen on doing a 5k run but the 30 day song challenge did catch my eye! I'm not sure who created the original but I have created a Worship Edition for us to share some of our favourite worship songs which will hopefully bring some encouragement to those who are struggling with the devastation of COVID-19. This challenge is just another way to remind those on our social media feeds of the hope we have in Jesus. Last week I shared some of my favourite songs that bring encouragement but I would love to see some of yours and also share some more of mine. That is why I am launching the #SiTSWorshipSongChallenge!!
How to get involved:
Anyone and everyone with a social media account (including WhatsApp) can take part , just download the template below to your phone or laptop to get started! Feel free to be as creative as you like in the way you share your songs but if you are stuck on how, here are a few pointers:
To share on Facebook:
Create a post and insert the template down below. Write a status that says something along the lines of: 'Day # - Song Artist - Song Title'
You could give a little bit of background about why you chose that particular song or just leave it as it is for your followers to enjoy (I would also post a link to the song where possible to make it easy for others to listen). Finally, don't forget to use '#SiTSWorshipSongChallenge' :)
To share on Instagram Stories:
Post a picture of the template below circling the current day you are on and use the 'Music' sticker to play your chosen song. Again, don't forget to use the hashtag '#SiTSWorshipSongChallenge' :)
To share on WhatsApp Stories:
1. Post a picture of the template with a circle around the day you're on
2. Post another story with: 'Day # - Song Artist - Song Title' and, again, you could give a little bit of background about why you chose that particular song (ideally with a YouTube link).
I can't wait to see the songs you share using our hashtag, feel free to tag us in any as well to make sure we don't miss it. I will be doing the challenge on my personal Instagram account @rochelletamaraa and WhatsApp and Teddy will be doing the challenge on the SiTS Instagram @SerenityinTheSpirit and his WhatsApp.
As always feel free to connect with Teddy and I using our social media links down below or here anonymously. We would love to have a chat with you and/or take any prayer requests!
Take care and God Bless,
Song of the post: The choice is yours ;)
