Membership Criteria

The Hospitality Committee is open to all men, women, and youth that are members of First A.M.E. Regular members must commit to work a specific Sunday morning service of the month, but alternate service duties are available.

Ministry Structure

There are two types of positions available to committee members: Greeters and Presenters. Greeters welcome visitors in the vestibule and collect guest information on visitor’s forms. Presenters introduce the visitors to the congregation and extend a formal welcome during the order of worship. A Committee Chairperson directs the committee.

When the Ministry Serves and/or Meeting Schedule

On their scheduled Sunday of duty, committee members are expected to begin greeting visitors in the vestibule 15 minutes before the morning service starts. Those with 8 am duties are expected to set out the welcome signs and visitor forms. Members should continue greeting visitors 15 minutes after service has begun. Presenters are scheduled to welcome visitors from the podium directly following the church announcements. Those with 11am duties are expected to put away the visitor forms and welcomes signs. There are no regularly scheduled meetings for this committee.
