“Welcome one another, therefore, as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.” Romans 15:7
The Hospitality Ministry provides a very valuable and necessary service to the Lord and to the local church. Though they are volunteers, rich heavenly rewards await those faithful to this important spiritual service. The Bible teaches in Acts chapter 6 and also 1 Corinthians chapter 12 of the importance of the ministry of helps and those involved in these ministries.
When a visitor or member enters the doors of the church, a greeter, an usher is waiting to provide a warm and genuine word of welcome. Serve on the front lines of the church’s hospitality ministry and provide a positive first impression for guests and a “glad to see you again” feeling for regular attendees of the church.
