Following the lead of the Episcopal Church, here are some guidelines for contributing to the St. Paul’s Church conversation online, both on http://www.stpauls-nbpt.org/ and on our Facebook page and on other social media.
Welcome! We hope that you will make connections, find and share information, and engage in conversations here.
No personal information
Besides your name, please avoid including personal information. This is a public website, and any information may be linked to your name and published on the Internet.
Please do not market your wares here, no matter how useful or wonderful.
Our church’s social media pages need to be safe places to engage in conversation. Please remember that these pages belong to a congregation, and think of them as a place for fellowship. Show tolerance for divergent opinions.
No personal attacks or insults. Jesus called the Syrophonecian Woman a dog. But he is Jesus, and we are not.
We understand that there can be many varied opinions on an issue, and we welcome all views and ideas.
Although these pages are monitored, we acknowledge that occasionally something inappropriate may find its way onto it. In most instances, we will send you a notice if we feel if something you posted is a violation of the guidelines. We reserve the right to remove inappropriate posts immediately. Subsequent violations can result in being blocked from this page without warning.
If you see something you feel is inappropriate, call or write the church office, and we will deal with it.
We reserve the right to block any commenter who posts content, or whose Facebook page contains content, that is, in the sole opinion of St. Paul’s Church staff, inappropriate or offensive. We may also block any commenter whose posts constitute testimonials, advice, recommendations, or advertisements for products or services, or any commenter who posts content, or whose Facebook page contains content, that is promotional in nature.
If you have any questions or concerns about this, please call or write the church office.
