Madison Park Community: Sunday First Impressions

In Scripture, God often calls His people to protect, shelter, and nourish travelers who find themselves in need. Practicing such hospitality reminded God’s people both of their own wanderings and of His goodness and faithfulness to them when they were in the wilderness. We too, as recipients of God’s mercy and provision, have great cause to invite others into a realm of grace. “Hospitality,” as Henri Nouwen writes, “is not to change people, but to offer them space where change can take place.” The Madison Park First Impressions team serves in the hope of creating such space. A space where people feel warm, safe and free from distraction. A space where they are freed up to worship.

Below are the many areas of “First Impressions” that serve Madison Park people. Most time commitments are limited to once every month and during just one Worship Service.

(1) Van Driver shuttle – Drive the shuttle that goes around our community to Madison Park so people who wouldn’t normally make it church, can make it.
(2) Muggers Coffee – Brew coffee, set it up/tear down, stock the tables and welcome guests. It’s as simple as that!
(3) Greet – Welcome people in a loving way.
(4) Usher/Server – Help people find a seat in the crowded worship center. Serve communion and take the offering.
(5) Communion Prep – Help set up or tear down the bread & juice.
(6) Guest Center – Help answer questions that our guests may have.
(7) Traffic Team –  Volunteers ensure the safety of those entering and exiting the parking area and promote an efficient method of parking.
