(Welcome team 2)
The welcome teams may be easy, low-commitment ministries, but they are high-impact. Except for the weekend messages, more people are impacted by these greeting and hospitality teams than by any other ministry in the church. First impressions are so important. If people feel welcome at Fellowship Church from the start, we know they are likely to come back.
