15 Thanksgiving Social Media Posts Your Church Can Share



The Thanksgiving season is upon us! This holiday is a perfect time for Churches to connect with their community and share encouragement and stories of thankfulness and generosity on social media. By doing this, it allows you and your Church to engage your congregation and community as you spread joy and a spirit of thankfulness.

So, what can you post on social media for your Church? Here are 15 examples of social media posts you can share across all the different platforms in a variety of ways to encourage others this Thanksgiving.  

  1. Have the Church Staff and/or Volunteers share a Thanksgiving memory.
  2. Share a story about someone you’re thankful for.
  3. Tell about a Thanksgiving tradition your family celebrates.
  4. Similar to number 3, but different. Ask people to share their family Thanksgiving traditions.
  5. Share a DIY Thanksgiving craft for families to do together. 
  6. Share a secret ingredient or tip for your stuffing or turkey that you use.
  7. Post pie recipes. There are lots of options!
  8. Share a vegetarian or vegan recipe.
  9. Offer ideas for what to do with Thanksgiving leftovers.
  10. Provide tips for gluten-free or allergy-friendly dishes.
  11. Host a Thanksgiving Trivia quiz.
  12. Have people “Tag a Friend” that they’re thankful for post.
  13. Start a chain of gratitude; nominate friends to share.
  14. Post a “Would you rather” Thanksgiving edition.
  15. Share stories of generosity and blessings from people at your Church


Thanksgiving provides a perfect opportunity for your Church to spread encouragement, hope, and inspiration. People are longing for inspiring messages and reminders of God's blessings. By sharing thoughtful social media content leading up to and after Thanksgiving, your Church can make a real difference this year. Your Church can play a very important role in the lives of people in your local and online communities by encouraging them to be thankful, not just during the Thanksgiving season, but always.
