Greeters and Welcome Center Volunteers
Sunday mornings, greeters stand at the doors to the worship service and welcome visitors and members, and may also pass out the morning bulletin. Greeters are needed for all worship services, and it is a wonderful way for new members to meet other members. Individuals, couples, and families are all welcome!
Welcome Center volunteers cover the center between services, help direct those with questions, and provide a friendly, hospitable welcome to our members and visitors. We also need greeters to welcome our visitors to the Coffee Hour, held after the 9:30 worship service.
