One of the strengths of St. Nicholas is our hospitality on Sunday mornings. Everyone, newcomers and long-timers alike, are welcomed by friendly and warm greeters and ushers. Greeters stand at the door with the expressed intention to welcome everyone and to assist visitors as they come to worship. Ushers hand out bulletins, count attendance, assist with the Offertory and Communion, and keep the nave looking clean for worship. These are vital parts of our Sunday morning worship experience.
We will have an usher & greeter training and recruiting session today, June 26 after the service. Lunch will be provided. If you are currently serving as an usher or greeter, please attend this meeting for a brush up. If you are looking for a way to serve your church as a new usher or greeter, please attend to learn what the duties are. For more information, contact Linda Sawyer.
Here is a lighthearted video entitled What If Starbucks Marketed Like The Church? A Parable, which reminds us the importance of hospitality to everyone, especially visitors.
