The Hospitality Ministry is the church’s first effort of friendliness and kindness. They are the wide smile and warm handshakes. This ministry has a simple, but important goal - to serve the Lord by making everyone who attends a service feel welcome and important from the moment they drive onto the church property, to the moment they walk through the doors, and the lasting impression we leave them leaving the property.

It can also be so much more! making a connection and building our network, we are an open door church. We are family of the Lord, ALL are welcome!
