The Host role is a position for people who are able to connect with new people at River Valley. Their job is to actively seek out those who are new to our church as well as those who seem disengaged. Hosts meet those who are new to the church and show them around the building, answer any questions they have and connect them to other members in the congregation. They also talk to those who seem “disengaged” whether they are sitting by themselves or in the auditorium during the in between time of services. Hosts really go above and beyond to help people feel welcomed and build relationships with others.
The Parking Lot Serve Team sets up parking cones; directs inbound/outbound traffic flow; assists attendees to make their way into the building; helps our elderly and handicapped as needed; makes all our first time guests feel welcome by directing, waving, and clapping; answering any questions or concerns they may have; and helps to direct them where they need to go.
