November 13, 2016 The tiers of our Hospitality Ministry ensure that everyone who enters the doors of our church is warmly welcomed. Each week, they are the first to demonstrate to our regular members and our visitors the notion of what it means to be a “Safe Place.” The Hospitality Ministry is divided into teams with a rotating schedule. Before church, the Ushers are warmly greeting people, distributing church pamphlets, answering questions, and ensuring that everyone is comfortably seated. They preserve an atmosphere of orderliness throughout the service as they monitor and meet needs of the Pastor and the congregation. Those situated at the Welcome Center in the main foyer serve in conjunction with Ushers to be among the first smiling faces seen, requesting visitor information, and guiding individuals toward participation in upcoming church activities. The Parking Attendants help to direct the flow of traffic in the parking lot before our morning services.
