Welcome Team

Do you enjoy meeting new people? Do you have a heart for people to find a church home at North Liberty First United Methodist Church? If you answered yes to both of these questions then we are looking for you to help us serve on the welcome team. We are looking for people to assist welcoming guests to our church on Sunday mornings. No hard work attached, just need smiling faces and a welcoming attitude. We are looking for several people at each service to wear their name tags along with a button that says “Ask Me” in case guests need information on the location of the nursery, bathrooms, etc. and to answer any questions they may have about the church. If you are interested in serving in this exciting ministry then I invite you to join me in an informational meeting and training on Wednesday September 9 at 7pm in the library. Come find out exactly what we are doing and why this ministry is so important in the life of the church. The goal of this team is to make people feel welcome and at home at our church. We want people to have the information they need in order to feel comfortable and to help them find a wonderful life giving church home. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me by calling the office or e-mail me at pastorjoshrath@gmail.com.
