Sunday Greeting and Coffee Hour Opportunities

Serving as a greeter before a Sunday service
is a great way of connecting with fellow church members
and welcoming visitors to FCC.
No experience is necessary.
All that is required is a friendly smile and a warm handshake.

Hosting a coffee hour after a Sunday service is a great way to
promote fellowship among church members and visitors at FCC.
Instructions are available to make the coffee & punch…
Anything else (cookies, coffee cake, etc) is optional.

These service opportunities are handled throughout the year
on a  volunteer basis by various church organizations
(boards, committees, teams, clubs, etc.) and
families and groups of friends.

If interested in greeting and/or hosting a specific Sunday,
look for the sign-up sheet posted
on the bulletin board in the hallway near the stairway.

Any questions may be directed to the church office
or Deacon Chairperson, Claire Boyce.
