Welcoming and hospitality is at the heart of God
You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
Parking lot to parking lot mindset
We want all Sunday volunteers to be mindful of what happens from “parking lot to parking lot.” We all play a critical role in making guests feel welcome.
“I’m coming back next week”
The thought we want people to have when they exit the building and drive home is “I’m coming back next week!”
A culture of ownership
You’re not here to do a job, you’re here to own the mission: to welcome others and show hospitality. We want every team member to go out of their way to welcome and show others hospitality. We are here to serve God cheerfully with all of our hearts. Colossians 3:23 - “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men.”
You will see more of what you’re looking for
If you’re intentionally looking for new guests, people that look confused or uncertain, you will find them—and see more of them every week! Who are you looking for each Sunday?
We’re glad you’re here!
This phrase is on the back of our new bright t-shirts. This simple phrase reminds us the posture and attitude we want to see lived out in our team at every church gathering.
Team huddles: 8:50 am and 10:20 am
40 minutes before each CFC gathering, each ministry team will huddle together for a quick reminder/thought before we begin serving. Teams will pray for unbelievers that may come to church today and pray for each other, that God will work in mighty ways. This is also a great opportunity to introduce yourself to others on your team and be prepared before the day begins. Team huddles will be lead by team members and leaders.
Pray that God will cause leaders to rise up
We are praying that God will be working in the hearts of the people serving on Sunday and that He may prompt people to become leaders.

”We’re glad you’re here!” shirts ($10 suggested donation)
If you were not here on Saturday, please see Hope Mitchell (near the coffee bar) to get your shirt. These are for those signed up to serve on Sundays!
You are encouraged to wear this each time you are serving to help newcomers identify you. When you wear this shirt, it’s your job to help people, greet people, and go out of your way to make others feel welcomed!
