A morning smile and “welcome” tells much about being an active, hospitable, approachable and friendly church. And we have an easy, fun service project that only requires 25 minutes of your time between church services.
- Patio greeters are men, women, older youth, young adults, older adults and seniors who greet folks on the patio on a regular basis, or as often or seldom as you wish.
- Patio greeter assistants welcome our visitors on a deeper level by being available to talk with visitors and offer to sit with them during the church service.
Contact Amy Skaggs at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to help out on the patio.
