Welcome Team Family 43

First-time visitors tell us one of the first things they notice at Manchester UMC is the Welcome Team, that is “The folks in the red shirts!” The Welcome Team members are the first impression to visitors as we welcome all to worship. It’s a great way to show God’s love and meet new people.

The Welcome Team Members can choose how often to serve whether it is one weekend a month or four weekends a month. Training is provided!

Welcome Team has individuals who serve by opening the doors for people as they enter the building, handing out bulletins, answering questions, providing directions, bringing the offering plates forward, etc.

Welcome Team Training

There will be a Welcome Team Training periodically throughout the year. This training provides an opportunity for everyone to meet each other, welcome new team members, answer any questions, and review safety protocols. In addition, all Welcome Team Members will be trained on:

  1. Fire and earthquake evacuation to the outdoors,
  2. Tornado evacuation to tornado-safe rooms in the lower level, and
  3. Basic training in use of the defibrillator in case of a serious cardiac event.

Anyone interested in becoming a member of Welcome Team is required to attend a Welcome Team Training. Existing Welcome Team members are expected to attend the training as a refresher. And they do, because they understand the importance of it all! If you are interested in participating in an upcoming training, please complete the form below.
