Greeting! What does that really look Like

Good evening,

I just wanted to say thanks to all of you who are keeping up with our Greeters posts and having some conversation about it.

I want to be open and honest with you that my goal is when our guests walk out of our doors on the weekend they can’t wait to come back because they felt the love you gave to them. 

We do hear from people that their experience coming into church has been welcoming and friendly.  You are doing wonderful work to the Glory of God!

I wanted to share something with you this week that one of my co-workers had shared with me.  I think maybe this could help explain why we are trying to go in a new direction with how we look and respond to our guests. We are also trying to have an area where our Hospitality/Welcome Desk is visible so it can be a friendly(or welcoming) place where people can get information about our church and school as well as help. 

We would like to give each guest a welcoming gift.   I appreciate your feedback and insight.  I would love to hear your thoughts on where the desk should be and what you think we should give as a welcoming gift.

I thank God for you and your service.

More about Lent and growing

I am sure you have noticed the purple paraments, drapes and stoles that have appeared for Lent in church.  We use the color purple to remind us of the pain and suffering of the crucifixion and royalty.  Lent gives us an opportunity to reflect, grow and become stronger in our faith. The Lenten season is clearly set apart as a distinct time from the rest of the year and forms a contrast with the joyful celebration of Jesus’ resurrection when our alleluias ring loud and clear at Easter.  Spiritual Simplicity is helping me grow this season. Lesson two has me wondering if I am doing everything with love.   I am evaluating things and activities with a different focus.  How is your faith growing this Lenten season?

Seder Meal on Wed. April 12 @ 6 p.m.

The night before Jesus was crucified, Jesus celebrated the Passover Seder with His disciples. God’s people had been following God’s Passover command for thousands of years to remember their salvation from slavery in Egypt.  That night, Jesus taught His disciples the true meaning of the Passover meal.

This family-focused Passover Seder Meal will teach children the importance of Passover at the time of Jesus’ life. It will help them connect the symbols of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross in the meal and how Jesus fulfilled them in His death and resurrection for all of our sins.

Registrations are required. Turn in the attached form to the front desk.
