The Greeters’ Ministry is dedicated to assisting visitors, as well as members in enjoying the worship experience at Mt. Olive A. M. E. Church.
Each Sunday a cheerful representative of the ministry welcomes worshippers as they approach and enter the church, providing for them, a bulletin, visitor’s card and/or various informational brochures, as well as quarterly editions of Our Daily Bread.
At some point during the worship experience, first-time visitors are presented to the congregation and given the opportunity to introduce themselves and provide any information they feel relevant.
Other visitors, Mt. Olive students returning from school are also provided with the opportunity to address the congregation. When all visitors are acknowledged, they are enthusiastically welcomed by the singing of our “Welcome” song, prior to the presentation of Parrish concerns and an opportunity for members and visitors to enjoy a brief period of fellowship. This sets the tone for a spiritually motivated worship experience; presentation of the “Word” by servant leader, Pastor James V. Williams.
It is the ultimate goal of the Greeters’ Ministry, to make the experience so pleasant, visitors will want to return and/or become a part of our growing family. And we invite any interested member, young or old, male or female to participate in this ministry.
