Greeters and Fellowship Servers
Our weekly Greeters and Fellowship Servers are important services to those who worship at Cornerstone and we appreciate the help of everyone who volunteers to fill these rolls. If you find you have a conflict and are not able to serve as scheduled, please trade with someone or find someone to serve for you. Below you will find simple instructions for serving as Greeters and Fellowship Servers. If you have any questions, please contact the church office.
Instructions for Greeters
Responsibility of the greeters is to welcome everyone who comes to worship. A smile and small talk goes a long way to making people feel comfortable. Greeters will be stationed at the Lyon Street door – either
directly inside the door or at the top of the stairs by 9:10 a.m. People using the elevator might need assistance and some might need to be directed to the sanctuary. Greeters will also be stationed at the entrance from the parking lot. People may need help with coats, the stairs, or other assistance.
The greeter will give any visitors a visitor packet and ask them to fill out the Guest Card and place it in the offering plate. (The packets are available on the table behind the last pew in the sanctuary.)
It is important for greeters to wear name tags, which can be found in the drawer of the console located under the window just before entering the sanctuary from the upper room.
Greeters may be called upon to assist the ushers with the morning offering. If there are adequate ushers available, the duties of the greeters ends when worship begins.
Instructions for Fellowship Servers
The responsibility of the servers is simply to enhance the fellowship time following worship. This is not intended to be a meal or anything fancy. Simple is best.
The beverages are prepared on Saturday. The Adult Book Study leader starts the coffee brewing at 8:00 on Sunday. Servers set the coffee brewer onto the warmer facing the Upper Room so people can serve
themselves. Sweeteners and creamers are available in the kitchenette.
It is wise to check before church to be sure everything is set up and ready to go.
If for some reason the coffee and cold drink are not prepared, simple instructions are posted on the wall next to the coffee brewer, and cold drink mix is in the cupboard. Instructions are on the carton.
Servers can bring a simple treat to serve with coffee, tea and juice, or the servers can serve cookies that are available in the freezer in the kitchen. (These are already baked.)
Disposable cups for cold and hot drinks, serving platters, spoons for stirring coffee, sweeteners and creamers, napkins and plates are also available in the kitchenette.
Lastly, the servers will assure that dishes are washed and put in the cupboard and that the kitchenette is clean and neat and that the tables are washed before leaving.
