The Hospitality Team is a terrific way to serve the church which provides us with so very much. Volunteers give just a few minutes of time each week and are rewarded by making new friends and visiting with old ones. We are truly blessed to have so many dedicated people who serve to make everyone feel welcome in our church family. Anyone who has an interest in volunteering to serve in the Hospitality Ministry should contact Kathy Egan at firstname.lastname@example.org
or 972-529-5601 ext. 315, or Jay Bartholomew at JBartholomew@talyst.com
.They will work with you to find a role to fit your interests and time requirements.
The first impression a visitor receives when entering the doors of Stonebridge UMC is a greeting by volunteers from the Hospitality Team. Greeters provide a warm welcome to our church and also provide directions to the worship services, child care, and adult and children Sunday school rooms.
The Hospitality Information Desk is located outside the Celebration Hall at the visitors’ entrance. Volunteers are available before and after worship services to provide information about our programs and ministries and to assist with campus directions. Newsletters, various brochures explaining current events, and sign up sheets, are available at the Information Desk, and at the Information display area in the Robertson Activity Center (RAC) foyer. These materials help inform our members and guests of the many ways to become active in our dynamic and growing church.
Ushers greet guests and offer bulletins to those entering worship services. They assist with seating, help those with special needs, and collect the offerings during services. Ushers play an important role in making everyone feel welcome and comfortable so that they can truly benefit from the experience of group worship.
Another aspect of the Hospitality Team is helping with the Pastor’s Coffees. The Coffees allow guests to become better acquainted with the history of our church and make personal connections with the pastors and staff in a casual environment.
Other areas of Hospitality include: parking lot attendants who assist with heavy traffic and keep things running smoothly during the busy holidays; those who manage the attendance pads; those who post the attendance in the church database; and those who contact Sunday visitors with personal phone calls.
