Over 80 times in Scripture, we find reference to the ministry of greeting and the call to extend hospitality is referenced many times as well. Hebrews 13:2 even says, “Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.”
Recent surveys found that the majority of people visiting a church for the first time decide within ten minutes whether or not they are open to coming back. One survey states that one of the top three questions people ask when visiting a church is, “Is this a friendly place.”
With this in mind, we invite you to be a part of a very important branch of our church’s ministry. Following are some of the primary areas in which we invite you to serve.
Greet all God's people in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:21
The Hospitality Team is responsible for setting up and cleaning up refreshments for our Sunday Morning Worship Services.
Greeters are stationed at various places on our campus as well as within our Worship Center for the purpose of welcoming people and helping assist them with any of their needs, including finding their way around our campus.
Ushers are responsible for receiving our tithes and offerings as people give during our worship services. Additionally, ushers help distribute the elements during our times of communion. Ushers are also asked to assist people as they make their way into the Worship Center.
