Say Yes to TGC
Hospitality team

Stina Dufour, Hospitality Team Lead

Put Me In, Coach

The Hospitality Team sets the tone for Sunday worship gatherings and other church events by creating a space where everyone feels welcome, seen, and encouraged when they walk in the door. We also connect visitors and regular attendees to the answers, resources, and support they need during their time with Trinity Grace.

 

 

Say yes to...

smiles
opening doors
new faces
breaking bread
early mornings
knowing names
seeing people

our team goals

We aim to create a friendly and inviting atmosphere that lifts spirits and breaks down barriers, allowing everyone to more fully connect with Jesus.

Our neighbors come from a wide range of backgrounds and preconceived notions about church and God. At Trinity Grace, we want each individual to encounter rest and healing in God's love... and that starts with a culture of presence and hospitality.

what to expect

We have two teams that support Sunday worship gatherings each week: one that helps before the service and one that helps afterward...with some overlap in between.

Each week, you can expect to help in a variety of ways:

  • setup and teardown of tables, materials, signage, communion, and refreshments
  • pray together as a team before the service and discuss any important logistics 
  • wear a lanyard (and a smile) to welcome attendees and answer any questions
  • participate in the service and coffee hour and intentionally meet newcomers
  • assist the TGC staff to make the service logistics go as smoothly as possible
