Greeters Schedule

“Greet one another with the kiss of love. Peace to all of you who are in Christ.”

1 Peter 5:14

What do Greeters Do?Extending a warm welcome: surround everyone with the love of God. Be positive, constructive and supportive. Offer a warm smile. A cheerful look brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones. Proverbs 15:30A calling: you are called to a ministry of God’s Agape love so greet with an attitude of love because it ministers to the giver and the receiver.Reach for the Hard Cases: make love the first thing we give away at the door and even those who come with large burdens can be relieved.

Walking, Talking, Information Centres: Answer questions, know your stuff and STAY INFORMED. Attend meetings and stay active within your ministry and church. Read the announcements which you give away.

Be faithful: do not underestimate the importance of faithfulness. It does not matter how big or how small the task given too you. Be faithful in whatever you do. Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful. 1 Corinthians 4:2.

Here are the steps to being the best ever greeter you can be:

  • Arrive early (8:15 am) and PRAY BEFORE YOU GREET
  • Read the announcement sheet so that you are aware of what is happening
  • Know where the washrooms are, which classrooms are open and if there is anything special going on (food drive, trip, etc.)
  • Shake or hug EACH person that walks in, no exceptions (kids and babies included)
  • Ask people you think are new if they are new and if they are new, give them a welcome card to fill out
  • One of the two greeters should be doing walk about the church every 15 – 30 minutes to see which seats are empty
  • Please seek out new people AFTER CHURCH or those who are standing alone and talk to them
  • KEEP RECORD (NOTIFY CATHY) IF WE RUN OUT OF ANNOUNCEMENTS OR HOW MANY EXTRAS WE HAVE AS WE ARE TRYING TO REGULATE OUR PRINTING TO AVOID WASTING PRINTING.
