Greeters Ministry

Mission:
The Greeters’ Ministry is committed to encouraging a spiritual loving attitude and atmosphere for worship by greeting each person with the joy and love of Jesus Christ.
 
Romans 16:1-16, Paul encourages the faithful to show their love to those whom God loves through the warmth of their greetings.
 
I Corinthians 16:20, this scripture reinforces Paul’s message from Romans, but here he adds that when greeting, to do so with a “holy kiss.”  This phrase demands that when greeting, you do so without deception, malice, or distinction of a person’s station (i.e. income, job, or associations.)
 
Purpose: 
The purpose of the Greeters’ Ministry is to support the vision of Calvary Baptist Church.  Specifically, the Greeters strive to “create a loving and comfortable environment that makes it easier for people to learn, grow and fellowship with believers.”  Deliberate actions to support the Vision in Action include welcoming all who enter God’s house as beloved family members who have come home, creating in community outreach opportunities beyond those in place at the church, and serving church members with a humble spirit at numerous breakfasts, lunches, etc.  Our purpose is to show our love for our Lord and Savior through our service to His people.
