Hospitality Hosts

Contact: Karen G & Diane M

This really consists of two groups of people. One is the relatively fixed group of people who see to it that the kitchen is always stocked with food, coffee, creamer, sugar, salt, pepper, tea, paper plates, paper cups, plastic forks, plastic knives, plastic spoons, and everything else that allows the kitchen to serve its desired function. If you want to get involved in what food and supplies the church has, volunteer for this group.

The other group of people is those who serve those supplies – The Hospitality Hosts. These are the people who make the coffee and set out and sometimes cook the food on Sunday mornings, and for funerals and other church functions. Additional needed functions in this area are cleanup activities. If you want to get involved in these types of activities, volunteer as a Hospitality Host for one or more Sundays or for special events. The folks who stock the kitchen will see to it that the supplies are there. Volunteer to be someone who serves those supplies and/or helps with cleanup. Hospitality Hosts are recruited by the Church Administrator and not necessarily by the contact people listed above.
