Sundays are a very busy, and exciting day here at Maranatha! There is nothing quite like coming together to worship the Lord as one. We offer plenty of outreach on Sunday mornings and like to engage with each other over coffee and fellowship.
Various teams of greeters and ushers greet people with warm smiles as they walk into church each week. They hand out bulletins and manage the information desk where people sign up for activities or give their tithes. They encourage newcomers to fill out a Welcome/Connect Card.
Looking for: People who like making others feel welcome, enjoy managing a desk and helping people with a smile.
Approximate Time Commitment: every 4 weeks, arriving at 9:15 am and staying until people leave (around 11:30 am).
