Nothing says “Welcome!” like someone, well, saying “Welcome!”
As we recover from a time of separation and isolation, we need a team of people to make our church a home. Just as you prepare your home to welcome guests, we have several things we do to make our church hospitable. See if any of these strike a chord with you:
Sunday morning greeting team: grab a name badge, pick a spot to stand, and offer a smile and greeting to those walking in. It’s that easy! And it goes a long way.
Ushers: once people are in the building and looking for a seat, it’s always nice to have someone help them out, particularly if they are new. It only takes a few moments but makes a world of difference to a family who just rushed in.
Communion team: we typically celebrate communion once a month, and it takes a small team of people to ready the elements for hundreds of people across multiple locations. This would be a monthly commitment of a few hours.
