God asks the church to be a fellowship sharing a common purpose and continually growing in faith. Paul describes the church as Christ’s “body” (Ephesians. 1:22). People experience the presence of Jesus Christ in the world through the ministry of the church. When your local church serves the needs of people, members and non-members, it is an expression of the love of Christ. The church is a servant body, created for service. “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10).

what we do
Shortly after Pentecost, the gift of hospitality (Romans 12:13, I Timothy 3:2, I Peter 4:9) was first exercised specifically for the church and those whom Christ died to save. As believers praised God, they had favour with people. Their love for one another attracted others to their fellowship and “the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved” (Acts 2:47). When people come to church they are sometimes burdened, sad or discouraged. Each person, member or newcomer, comes with the hope that the worship service will be an experience that uplifts and inspire them and that it will be a time of renewal and celebration.
The hospitality ministry helps to make this a reality for those in attendance. Although hospitality ministry’s love should be no stronger than the love found in the rest of the body of Christ, nevertheless the hospitality ministry’s performs a major role in ensuring that people see and experience that love. The Hospitality ministry is a vital part of the Ministry, it represents the church in a very visible way, and helps set the tone in preparation for the worship service and assist with the smooth operation within the service.
Members of the hospitality ministry are often the first person a newcomer meets and they give a warm welcome to those coming to our church, especially our newcomers. Members of the Hospitality ministry stands ready to serve in whatever way possible to ensure that all persons in attendance have an unforgettable life changing experience during their time in service.
