GUIDE FOR GREETERS
As a Greeter, you are contributing
to the mission of
1) Cheerful Greeters welcoming all to worship
During the week prior to Worship Service:
¨ Read all the lessons for your worship service.
¨ Pray for guidance and inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
Before the Worship Service:
¨ Arrive 15 minutes before the service starts.
¨ Wear your name-tag.
¨ Go to the “welcome table” and check in with the council-person-of-the-day.
¨ Get a hot drink to warm your hands!
¨ Open both inner doors to the narthex with door-stops.
¨ Evaluate the weather, and open either one or both of the main outer doors with large doorstops. Visitors and parishioners should not have to open a door to get into church – these should be opened for them!
¨ Check the Visitors Log on the center table, and make sure pens and welcome materials are in-place and all is neat and orderly.
¨ Take station by the inner doors, ready to shake hands.
¨ Greet all with a smile and a firm handshake (or hug!) and a “Good Morning!” or “Welcome!” or “Glad to see you today!”
¨ Introduce yourself to anyone you don’t know.
¨ Direct all visitors to sign in at our Visitors Log on the center table, and show them to the welcome table for orientation by the council-person-of-the-day), or direct them to the ushers for bulletins as appropriate (early birds to the welcome table, just-in-time folks to the ushers).
During the Worship Service:
¨ Participate in worship.
After the Service:
¨ Rejoice! You have served well. Try to regret any visitors you may remember! Thank you!
¨ Pass on any concerns about worship to the Worship and Music committee.
