Greeters use their gifts of hospitality to help welcome people – especially visitors – to the church. A new procedure should help them do that more effectively.
From now on, Greeters are asked to station themselves in the outer lobby at the main entrance doors in order to greet people as they first enter the building. The purpose is threefold:
a) Visitors can be greeted immediately upon entering the church rather than having to find their way to the worship center before being “officially” greeted.
b) After meeting visitors at the main entrance, Greeters may now introduce them to a “Roving Greeter” or other church members who can then show them around the facility or to the worship center.
c) Moving Greeters to the main entrance doors will alleviate some of the congestion and noise at the entrance to the worship center. Of course, ushers will still be available at the entrance to the worship center to assist visitors, as well as members.
Thanks for your cooperation with this minor change in procedure that is being undertaken to improve our hospitality shown to those who visit Good Shepherd in
