Coming to a new church can be intimidating to say the least and often includes various levels of fear and uncertainty as guests wonder what their first-time experience will be like.... will I fit in or will I stand out? Where do I go? What do I do?
Each church has a different culture, and until you attend a few worship services, you never know what it is like.
The First Impressions team's objective is to help put those 'guest' fears at ease, while making the first Lake Community Church experience a great one from the moment each person walks in the doors.
If you are interested in more information or taking the next step in the areas below, please fill out the simple form and Marilee Trosen (First Impressions Coordinator) will follow up with you.
- Welcome Desk Host - Staff the Welcome Desk in the 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 - This is a second layer of welcoming which both greets people as they enter the worship venue, as well hands out the bulletins.
What is the commitment?
The Welcome Desk is staffed before, between, and after the services to meet and assist new guests or those looking to get involved. 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. You can also 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. .
