"Don't forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it!"  Hebrews 13:2 (New Living Translation)

Although the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we do many things, opportunities still exist to welcome and show hospitality to those coming to worship on campus and online. Please contact those below if you are interested in being a part of this ministry!

Do you like to make people feel welcome?
Do you have a gift for making strangers into friends?
Do you have a passion for reaching out to those without a church home?
If so, this is the place for you!!!
It’s easy – Here is how YOU can help:
  • Wear a name tag in worship! You may order and pay ($8) for a Shady Grove UMC name tag through Realm! Questions? Email Donna Noble
  • Work at a Welcome Center! Welcome Centers located in the sanctuary narthex (foyer) and fellowship hall provide a centralized location on Sunday morning where guests and others may ask questions, receive directions and inquire about ministries for children, youth and adults. The Centers are staffed by warm and friendly hosts 15 minutes before and after the 9:30 and 11:00 worship services. If you would like to be part of this welcoming ministry, please email Beth Chowen.
  • Become a member of the Hospitality Committee! We invite you to join us as we welcome newcomers to our church family and provide hospitality opportunities throughout the year! Please feel free to contact a committee member to find out more.
