How would you like to be greeted?

Fellow Greeters!

We have been talking about Lobby Love for over a year now and it is time we get down to business and start putting some ideas into action.  You are an important part of the Trinity team that is making a difference on Sunday mornings. Why is greeting so important? Greeters are our first line of the Welcome Team!  We have the opportunity to make our guests feel important and special just by being thoughtful. I value what each and everyone of you bring to this team which means we all need to share our ideas and thoughts on how best to make our guests feel welcome.   I have attached that funny video about how not to greet, as well as listing some pointers on how we might want to approach greeting.

I came across a list of the top 20 greeting best practices.  Over the next few weeks I will put out a few at a time and see if we can use these in our Lobby Experience.  We can’t get better at this without your input so if you would please take some time and think and pray about how we can all be better at being greeters and lets start a conversation right here on The City . We want to hear about  any thoughts or ideas for making our Lobby Love Experience Extraordinary for our Guests.

1. The most important person for a visitor to talk to in order to feel at home in a new church is you. It is not the pastor, or the greeter, but a regular attender. Eshleman says “One of the most impressive gestures we can extend to first time visitors is for people with no official position to take the initiative and welcome them.”

2. Ask questions and learn something about our guests. We are trying to build a relationship not sell our church.

3. Greet children at their level.  Pull up a chair and bend down so you are on their turf.

I look forward to hearing from YOU!

Blessings on your day

Grandparents’ Day – March 10th

As part of Grandparents’ Day, Trinity Roselle Foundation will co-sponsor a continental breakfast from Panera with the Parents Teacher League. During the morning, it’ll be a great opportunity to have some casual conversation with your grandchild.

Also, the Lutheran Church Extension Fund is offering an opportunity to start up a savings account for your child or grandchild during Grandparents’ Day. To commemorate this special day, Trinity Roselle Foundation will add a matching gift of $25 to the account when you open a Young Investors StewardAccount™ with an initial investment of $25 or more.

It’s a special day for Grandparents and we look forward to seeing you there!

For more information, check out the LCEF website here or look for the TRF table in the Narthex when you visit that day.
