Outreach and Hospitality Team
Reaching out with a friendly hand and an encouraging word is just the beginning of what we seek to do in making our community of faith welcoming and attractive.
This team is responsible for publicity, promotion, and making the church and its programs visible and invitational in the community. They are also responsible to develop programs to proclaim the gospel to those outside the church, to invite persons to fellowship and faith in Christ, to receive them into the Christian fellowship of the congregation, and to develop programs to aid the spiritual growth of those new persons.
Matthew 5:14-16 (MSG)
“Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.
