Phil 2:1-5

“Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate?  Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose.  Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves.  Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.  You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.”

Serving in the Guest Ministry:

 The Family Community Church Guest Ministry goal is to give first-time as well as regular visitors a very warm greeting in order for them to experience the presence of God’s Spirit through us.
We provide this service for the guests with five teams.

 1.  Parking Lot Team
 For each service, members of this team are stationed at the front door to watch for first-time visitors who may park in the “First Time Visitors” parking spaces.  They welcome them to Family and direct them to Visitors Packet Team Member.

 2.  Visitor Packet Team

Sub-team One:  Before each service, team member is at a table just inside the front door and greets the visitors by giving them a Visitors Packet which includes information about the church and a visitor’s card.  She also answers any questions the guest may have.  She  points out  the person passing out bulletins to the visitor.

 Sub-team Two:  At the end of each service, this team member moves to the cart which has Visitors Packets and wrapped gifts.  After the benediction, she moves the cart over next to the pastor and stands with the packets while the pastor passes out gifts to the first-time visitors as he greets them.

 3.  Welcome Announcement Team
 These team members deliver the welcome greeting during Sunday Morning Worship, usually after the altar prayer.

 4.  Visitor Gift Team
 This team makes sure the basket on the Visitors Cart is full before each service so the gifts can be given to the first-time visitors by the pastor.  She also is responsible for buying and wrapping the gifts.

 5.  Follow-up Team

 This team calls the visitors to welcome them to the church, asking them how they liked the service, if they have prayer requests, and/or any other questions about the church.
