How do we invite people to come worship with us?
How do we welcome them when they first come through our doors?
How do we connect with them in the work of our congregation?
Hi, it’s Lynne Homeyer. When Peter was going to seminary in California, I attended a two-hour version of this workshop offered by the Diocese of California, and it was full of simple ideas for inviting, welcoming and engaging with new people.
Now the Diocese of Western Michigan is offering us the opportunity to attend the full one-day workshop, and Peter and our Senior Warden, Debbie Murphy, and I will be going to Midland, Michigan on May 4 – and I’m excited! BUT It would be great to have some folks who have been at Holy Trinity for awhile come with us, too, particularly anyone who is interested in our welcoming, outreach and hospitality ministries.
Let our Priest-in-Charge, Peter Homeyer, know if you’re interested? We need to register in advance so we’ll have materials and a lunch waiting for us!
