Shift into Hospitality: Be a Greeter
by Kathy Maher, Worship
Through a new program at Trinity called Shift, we’re striving to deepen our mission and ministry. Our first goal is to Shift from Fellowship to Hospitality.
Is Trinity your church home because you feel welcome here? Perhaps you were greeted warmly the first time you walked though the door. Won’t you pass that feeling along? Greeting before the service only takes a few minutes, and it can be done at your convenience. It’s a great way for individuals to help once in a while or for couples or families to volunteer together.
Here’s how it works: If you usually attend the 8:30 a.m. service, contact Karen Taylor at 703-241-7576. Karen sends an occasional email asking for greeters; just sign up for the date of your choice. Greeters at this service also make coffee (easy instructions are provided) and bring a snack to share. If you’d like to greet at the 10:30 a.m. service, you can sign up online at http://bit.ly/1030greeters or call Linda Drumheller at 703-448-6702.
After that, all you have to do is come to the service a bit early and greet people as they enter, offering a friendly hand and a warm smile. That’s all there is to it. Join us at Trinity as we Shift from Fellowship to Hospitality and welcome others as we have been welcomed.
