Ushers hand out bulletins, assist guests in finding seats, pass the notebooks and offering plates during worship, and provide other assistance as needed on Sunday mornings at 9:30 and 11:00 am in our traditional Sanctuary worship services, as well as DiscipleChurch, The Gathering, and eleven:eleven celebration.
Greeters welcome those entering our facilities with a warm, friendly smile and provide directions to our Welcome Center or other locations as needed on Sunday mornings.
Welcome Center Volunteers work with a designated staff member to offer vital assistance and provide a welcoming presence in our Welcome Center each Sunday morning. They serve from 9:00 – 9:30 am, 10:30 – 10:55 am, and 12:00 – 12:15 pm on their designated Sundays.
On Ramp Volunteers We want our guests to know that church is so much more than a Sunday service — First Church is a place where they will never walk alone. Our On Ramp Volunteers are in the garden after the 9:30 Gathering service and the 11:00 Traditional service ready to greet our guests and give them a gift to let them know how glad we are they worshipped with us. If you’re looking for an opportunity that doesn’t take a lot of time, makes a huge difference in the experience our guests have at FUMCFW, and is lots of fun, this is the perfect place for you to serve!
Training is provided for all of these opportunities and service commitments range from once a month to each Sunday.
“Hospitality is the art of preparing space for others so they feel comfortable and welcomed — and THAT is what our hospitality volunteers do every Sunday. There is truly nothing they want more than for people to come back to our church because they felt comfortable and cared for. We’re always looking for people who love to be part of making sure everyone knows how happy we are that they are with us on Sundays.”
