Social Media Policy, Guidelines


The Kansas District LCMS social media platforms are a wonderful gathering point for LCMS Lutherans in Kansas and beyond. The District social media outlets are meant to inspire our congregations, schools, and RSOs through the sharing of stories, photos, and information about events and resources to members of the Kansas District. 

Included below are two social media documents: the Kansas District Social Media Policy (approved by the Board of Directors), and social media guidelines to keep in mind when participating on Kansas District social media platforms. These documents are to help ministry work in the Kansas District thrive and grow. May God continue to provide abundant blessings to our District!
