This includes: Greeters, Ushers, Guest Connect, and Parking ministry for each of our Sunday services. The primary goal of our Connection Ministries is to make sure each person who walking into our church feels welcomed, loved, and guided. Typically, one would serve before and after one service on a month on, month off schedule. Primary gifts would be hospitality and service with a heart to make everyone feel welcome and make connecting at church easier.
- Parking Ministry has a heart to greet and guide people from the moment they enter into our parking lot.
- Greeters have a heart to ensure that everyone who enters our church feels welcomed and loved. They help guide our guests where they need to go.
- Ushers have a heart to create a warm, welcoming environment within our worship services by assisting people to open seating, collecting the offering, and help keep an orderly service.
- Guest Connect-ers have a heart to welcome and give guidance to new guests who are turning in a Connect Card. These people give direction to a guest’s “next steps” to connecting at Morning Star.
