What we do:
At PCC, greeting is a high priority! Every Sunday, we receive visits from our PCC family, as they come for our weekly worship gatherings. We want them to know that we are thrilled they have arrived. Additionally, we want to keep our eyes peeled for new guests—every Sunday someone brand new visits our Gathering! New visitors will decide whether or not they’ll embrace our church as a possible community for themselves and their family within the first 15 minutes of arriving.
Greeters provide a warm welcome, information about a variety of engagement opportunities, and other assistance.
Why we do it:
In conjunction with our G4 strategy, as part of our Sunday Connection Team, the role of Greeter lets our guests know they are valued when they Gather, which helps prepare them to be worshipful and receptive to the whole gathering experience. This role also encourages people to Grow in Christ through engagement. As a team member, you will Give of your abilities. That’s three of the four G4 elements in one role!
Who does it:
- Are you an extrovert or just love helping people?
- Are you excited to meet new people?
- Do you feel excitement at the prospect of helping new people have an awesome first experience at PCC?
If you answered yes to these questions, then this role is for you!
How we do it:
- Arrive 45 minutes before the gathering—energetic and ready to serve.
- Be intentional in seeking out guests.
- Give direction to Sunday options; e.g., Kids Ministry, bathrooms, etc.
- Be joyful, welcoming, and helpful.
- Serve 2 times per month, when scheduled and available.
Initial and ongoing training. Monthly check-ins with the Greeter Lead.
We win when:
- Guests feel welcomed and valued.
- Guests don’t go unnoticed.
- Guests are engaged and informed.
- Greeter teammates become friends and pray for each other.
- Greeter teammates share experiences and ideas.
