The guiding verse of our group is Romans 15:7 (ESV)
"Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God."
Our vision is to welcome all persons and help them identify ways where they can CONNECT to our church, GROW together and SERVE our Lord Jesus Christ.
In striving to make each person feel an integral part of our church family we:
Provide greeters who will welcome you at the front door with a warm smile.
Ensure all visitors feel at home and are encouraged to develop a meaningful relationship with our church community.
After the service, greet visitors at the Welcome Table at the rear of the sanctuary where they will have an opportunity to receive more information about our church, along with a gift.
Follow-up with newcomers based on the contact information they have provided us.
Strengthen congregational connections by facilitating visitor ties to elders, deacons and staff members. Such connections may be made through small groups, committees, music ministry, etc. and be based on interests that have been shared.
Participate in a variety of church fellowship activities and provide support to other church groups where responsibilities overlap.
Sing and Ring Christmas Carols
Sunday, December 16, 2018,
Spirits will be bright and antlers will be twinkling as our merry band of singers and ringers proclaims the joy of Christ’s birth to our neighbors. All are invited to sing, ring, or just hold a flashlight and spread some love in the neighborhood!
· 5:00 PM: Gather in the Narthex to pick your festive hat and bells, take your song book and flashlight, and ask the Lord to open our neighbors’ ears, hearts, and doors to Christ’s love.
· 5:15PM: Head to Dane Ridge, singing and ringing past each doorway as our cherubs hang candy cane invitations to our Christmas Eve services.
· 5:45 PM: Return to the Narthex to warm-up with warm cocoa, cider, and Christmas cookies. Decorate and fill your goody bag to take home.
· Contact: Nancy Hummer (firstname.lastname@example.org; 571-330-8091 text or call). Please let me know by Friday, 12/14, how we can support you (e.g., transportation, allergies).
