Welcome Ministry

VCBC’s welcome ministry includes our door greeters, welcome attendants and ushers.

We want to positively introduce those who have chosen to visit our church to our members, programs and ministries. With a spirit of Christian love and grace, we serve to nurture a thoughtful community and are focused on being intentional in making sure visitors feel welcomed. A welcome that is more than being friendly. He calls us to have a hospitable appreciation towards visitors in a warm, joyful and generous manner.

Jesus made every effort to go out and meet people. He approached them and was deeply interested. In other words, He viewed everyone as significant. Jesus could have ignored Zacchaeus, a dishonest tax collector (Luke 19:1-10). But, He saw him in the tree and called him by name. How thrilled Zaccheaus must have been when Jesus singled him out of the multitude. Christ’s grace is sufficient to meet the needs of those searching for something deeper in life.

DOOR GREETERS

Our friendly and outgoing door greeters interact with and approach visitors who might be complete strangers, which requires confidence and the ability to engage visitors in conversation.

WELCOME ATTENDANTS

In addition to saying good morning, our observant welcome attendants quickly assist our congregation in locating their name tags as well as kindly creating temporary name tags for our visitors. Our welcome attendants will either know the answers to potential questions from our visitors or introduce them to another person who may be able to assist.

USHERS

In addition to handing out Sunday bulletins with the order of service, our hospitable ushers guide our congregation members and visitors to a place to sit during service. Ushers can assist visitors with introductions to church staff before or after service.
