It has been exciting around Marshfield First Baptist Church these past few weeks. Our schedule change is well underway and Fall ministries are off to a strong start. It has been great to see everyone worshiping our Lord together!
As we move forward, we should always strive to be the most welcoming church we possibly can be. Let me remind you of a few principles of being a truly welcoming church to both members and guests.
- Greet someone you have never met before
- Introduce people to each other
- Follow up with someone you met recently
- Thank someone who did something you appreciate
(principles by Karl Vaters)
Each one of us has a special role in greeting and serving members as well as guests. Discover your role and begin using it to reach out to others. 1 Peter 4:9-10 states Be hospitable to one another without complaining. Just as each one has received a gift, use it to serve others, as good stewards of the varied grace of God.
Let’s continue to look forward to what God has in store for us in the coming months.Serving Together,
