Serve as a Greeter!

Here you can find all the information you need to know about serving as a greeter

What is the purpose of greeting?

The purpose is to greet every person with the love of Christ, that they feel Christ’s love as they walk onto the campus and enter through the doors. Greet every guest so they feel welcomed as they enter into a time of worship. The greeting ministry is one of the most crucial ministries of the church, as we encounter visitors for the first time, you are the frontline. Greeting is an opportunity to express the love of Christ to all who enter.

How long is the term to serve as a greeter?

Greeters and the greeter coordinator are asked to serve for one year. At the end of the year, greeters and the greeter coordinator are welcome to continue serving. Greeters will serve once a month on a greeter rotation during the Sunday morning worship service in addition to special events as they come up throughout the year.
