St. Andrew Presbyterian Church Iowa City

St. Andrew Hospitality

Our goal is to have 10 - 12 usher/greeters for each service. We need 5 ushers to hand out bulletins at the front entrances of the sanctuary and to take the offering; we need 1-2 greeters to greet at each Welcome Kiosk; and we want 1 greeter to welcome people at the lower level entrance. It is also helpful to have extra greeters who walk around the atrium to greet and connect with people. Remember, you will make an impact in creating a warm and welcoming place!

As the sanctuary fills it is very important to lead people all the way into the sanctuary to help them find seats; once the service has started this is more easily done from the side entrance. Don't just point out seats! Lead them to the seats; this eases the self-consciousness of guests.

Remember, too, that you don't have to sign up in order to be a greeter! Even if you are not signed up, be alert for guests to St. Andrew and be ready to welcome them and orient them to the church.
