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).
Welcome Desk attendants are often the first impression of Maranatha for newcomers and visitors. Our desire is to create a welcoming tone for everyone visiting Maranatha, particularly those visiting for the very first time. We do this, in part, by collecting Welcome/Connect Cards and extending Welcome Bags to newcomers who are considering being a part of Maranatha. We also help acquaint visitors with the various ministries of Maranatha, introduce them to others from the church who share their age/interest/demographic and sometimes offer a small tour of the church.
Looking for: People with a heart for hospitality who enjoy meeting and connecting new people.
Approximate Time Commitment: 9:45am-11:45am (pre and post service) on a monthly basis
