If you are able to smile, shake hands and say hello, you are the perfect candidate to be a Sunday morning greeter for the 10:00 service. Duties include coming about 20 minutes early, greeting everyone, and telling visitors that there are Visitor Information Cards in the pews. If someone needs other information, such as where child care is, the greeter can tell them, or ask an usher to help them. That’s all there is to it. So if you would like to do this, please sign up on the sheet in Lander Hall.
