Coming to a new church can be intimidating to say the least.
Guests often feel various levels of fear and uncertainty as they wonder what the first-time experience will be like.... will I fit in or will I stand out? Where do I go? What do I do?
The First Impressions team's objective is to help put those fears and anxieties at ease. Our goal is to provide a welcoming and friendly experience from the moment each guests walks in our doors.
- Connecting Point Desk - Be a host at the 'Connecting Point' desk area in the main lobby, meet new people, and assist explaining who we are and what opportunities to connect may be available.
- Front-Door Greeter - Be a warm and friendly person who greets people as they arrive, making each feel welcome, valued, and comfortable.
- Worship Greeter - Be a 'second layer' of welcoming - greet people as they enter the worship venue and hand out the bulletins.
What is the commitment?
The Connecting Point desk is staffed before, between, and after each service to meet and assist new guests, those looking to get involved, or sign-up for an event. The frequency of this role can be scheduled by month or by availability, and you can also choose to serve to cover a specific service time or both service times.
As a greeter, you can be scheduled with one of the existing teams who cover one month at a time or you can choose to be scheduled based on your availability and for a specific service time.
Greeters need to arrive about 20-25 minutes prior to the service and then get placed at an entrance. Many of the volunteers who attend the 9:00am service greet for both services. They simply arrive early for the 9am service and then stick around to greet until shortly after the start of the 10:30am service. .
