Would you consider being a greeter for a Sunday morning worship service?
Church greeters have a very special role: they are often the first person a visitor meets, they make a positive first impression of our church, and they make our guests and members alike feel welcome on Sunday mornings!
Our Deacons oversee our greeters, their role, training, and the material they hand to attendees and guests. Among the responsibilities of greeters are the following:
- Arriving before 10 a.m. to find out which seats are reserved for lay readers, musicians, guest speakers, those with special needs, etc., as well as to receive any special instructions for the day.
- Welcoming with a smile everyone who attends
- Learning the names of visitors and new attendees
- Handing a Sunday bulletin to each person
- Handing a visitor packet to 1st-time visitors
- Directing people to the name tag table and prayer cards
- Assisting everyone to a seat in the church, patio or Moore Hall
- Reminding people of our pandemic guidelines when necessary
- Collecting completed visitor cards
- Introducing visitors to others, as appropriate
- Saying “hello” to visitors when you see them in church again
- You may also be asked to sit at the main door during the worship service to welcome latecomers and help them find a seat.
