The call to hospitality begins with a desire to build community. That joy which stems from welcoming people into a loving community, a warm and beautiful space, and then feeding them. Everyone is hungry for something and at Church of the Redeemer our Hospitality Team strives to feed that hunger in a variety of ways.
The team is a collection of several hospitality ministries: Coffee Hour, Newcomer Events, Funeral Receptions, Main Dish, Greeters, Weddings, Block Parties, and various special celebrations throughout any given year. One may choose to be a part of these specific ministries (which would automatically make you a part of the Hospitality Team) or may just prefer to volunteer ad hoc when available.
Sign up for the Hospitality Team now and we will be happy to help you discern whether you feel called to commit to one of our hospitality ministries, too.
