The greeters in God’s church ARE the “gateway” from the world into the service. Greeters help people transition from the world and “worldly experiences” into a service that can prepare them to have “spiritual experiences”.
As greeters our job is very simple. We are here to show the love of Christ and make everyone feel like they are part of our church family. We seek to eliminate fear and encourage the love of Christ by showing the beauty of a smile when someone enters into our church doors. Kind words, a loving handshake or brief hug, may be all that is needed to boost confidence and bring a sense of ease to someone’s heart. The word “Welcome” is just a small percentage of what God can do through the greeter’s ministry. He has given this ministry so much more power to touch others through the joy of our service.
The Greeters Ministry meets quarterly on the 3rd Thursday from 6p.m. to 7 p.m. Location is announced prior to the meeting.
Ministry members are required to wear name badges on the Sunday they are greeting.
Reporting times are as follows:
- If you are working the 8 a.m. service, your report time is from 7:20 a.m. to 8:05 a.m.
- If you are working the 11 a.m. service, your report time is from 10:20 a.m. to 11:05 a.m.
Please remember we participate with the Usher Board for our consecration prayer every Sunday morning before we begin our duties.
