70 Best Instagram Captions for Churches to Post

Why Instagram?

Instagram Can Be Intimidating

Instagram for churches can be very intimidating because there are so many things that churches are expected to consider when it comes to Instagram. The sheer posting itself is intimidating enough, but if you can use Instagram well, it can greatly benefit your church.

Things like Instagram bio, Instagram account name, Instagram Reels, and Instagram posts are all things that you have to consider when you are working on your church’s Instagram. Another thing that you have to think about is Instagram captions, so in this article, we want to provide you with some ideas for Instagram captions to help you to choose the perfect caption for your post.

The Benefits of Church Instagram 

Instagram plays an important role in engaging your congregation outside of service times. There are 6 days in between each Sunday, so it is important to find a way to engage your congregation during those six days. 

Through Instagram, you can provide inspirational posts to encourage your congregation. Because there are six days between most church services, your congregants might benefit from seeing a post throughout the week. A post like a snippet from the previous week’s sermon or a post of encouraging Bible verses can help the spiritual health of your congregants. 

Beyond just communicating and encouraging your current congregation, Instagram is a great way to represent what you do to people outside of your church. Using captions you can make sure people who are considering attending your church know where the right place is and what to expect from the service. People who don’t go to your church might be curious about the demographics of your church or the dress style, so they will probably visit your church’s Instagram to get a good idea of what it’s like.

Of all of the social media platforms, Instagram is also the best way to connect with the next generation of church-goers. It is the most popular social media platform for high school students, so having a well-done Instagram can attract those younger congregants.

Our Caption-Making Ideology

The Types of Church Instagram Posts

In this article, we are going to cover a few different types of church Instagram posts because different posts require different types of captions. We want our posts to make sense from the images, videos, and captions, so we are going to break it down into a few different categories to make it easier for you. 

The Sunday morning pre-service post is the perfect time to invite or remind people about your church service. Saturday is typically the night of the week when people go out, so it might be easy for people to forget about church the next morning. By posting before service on Sunday morning, you can remind your congregants about the church and build their anticipation for the service that is going to take place. 

Throughout the week a great post you can do is a video clip of the sermon. Posting video clips of the sermon is a great way to remind your congregation about the message that your Pastor shared from God’s word in the previous week. It can be easy to forget the message throughout the week, but along with the clip you can post a specific quote that your pastor had during his message. 

Bible verses are another thing that you can post to engage your congregation. You can post a graphic that makes the Bible verse look great, along with a caption that expands upon the idea of the Bible verse, so your congregation is reminded to be intentional about reading and studying their Bible.

Another post you can do is an event sign-up post. Event sign-up posts are a way of inspiring your congregation to get signed up for a specific event. Much work and planning go into church events, so promoting them adequately is important. When it comes to these kinds of posts we recommend being specific about what the event is going to be like.

The weekend recap post is another way of telling your congregation about the great things that God did through your weekend experience. You can post pictures about the weekend, and you can give a specific reason that it was so special in the captions. That way, you engage them not just with the pictures, but with a meaningful, perfect word to describe the weekend experience. Furthermore, this helps develop FOMO for the people who didn’t come to church. They can see that church was great, and that they shouldn’t miss next week. 

Advertisement posts are another way to engage your Instagram audience and reach out to new people. You can pay for a sponsored post so that people in your area might see your post. For these captions, we recommend talking about your church a little, by saying your denomination and where your church is located. For example, if you are a non-denominational church in the Pheonix area, you should put that on your advertised posts, so people will know more about you. 

What a Church Instagram Post Should Be

A church’s Instagram post should be a few things: encouraging, informational, and inspirational. The Bible is clear that encouragement is important when it comes to the Body of Jesus Christ, so we should use Instagram to encourage people. Furthermore, our Instagram posts should provide more information to people on the platform, so that they will feel more connected to our church. Lastly, our Instagram post should inspire our viewers to take the next step, such as attending a service, inviting a friend to church, or something else.

The most important thing about creating church Instagram posts is that they represent God and your church. Don’t try to be too edgy or cool, but simply try to represent God with the things that you post and say in the caption. We have worked very hard to come up with the best church captions for Instagram, so with all of that being said, here are 70 examples of church captions for Instagram.
