Research shows that how newcomers are greeted is a key factor in their decision to keep coming back to a church. Unity of Montclair’s Welcome Ambassadors are the first, shining smiling faces everyone sees—whether a longtime member or newcomer—when they enter our church. They create an atmosphere that makes first-time visitors say “I feel as if I’ve come home.” Welcome Ambassadors radiate serenity, warmth, and ease.
Our Welcome Ambassadors represent Unity and show the world who we are as a spiritual community: open, inclusive, diverse, and above all friendly!
They also help ensure that the Sunday church service runs smoothly and that the congregants have a joy-filled, stress-free experience so they can be open to Spirit.
Welcome Ambassadors serve for one Sunday a month for one year, or as long as you wish. Duties include arriving at 10:15 a.m. before the 11:00 a.m. church service, setting up lobby tables, passing out flyers when necessary, assisting people to their seats, helping congregants with children, collecting the offering, and putting everything away after the service.
If you are interested in serving as a Welcome Ambassador, please contact the Service Team Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you aren’t currently serving on any teams, this is a perfect opportunity to begin with. You can get to know the church community, make friends, and directly feel the benefits of being in service.
