Minister of Hospitality

“Be hospitable to one another without complaining. As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God's varied grace.”

 

The most valuable earthly possession a person can have is a warm, supportive friendship. People without relationships are miserable people, but relationships cannot be purchased. They arise from our innermost needs, grounded in our God-given ability to love and care for others. A growing, healthy church nurtures healthy relationships.

The purpose of the Hospitality Ministry is to offer the love of Christ to our guests and welcome them in such a way that they would be transformed from strangers into friends. These ministers also assist in the collection of gifts during the offertory.

The word hospitality literally means love of strangers and is found several times in the New Testament (Romans 12:13; 1 Timothy 3:2; Titus 1:8; 1 Peter 4:9).

"Hospitality is the way in which God's people do more for the stranger than they might do for their dearest friends. For God often comes to us in the guise of the stranger."
