Volunteers in action
As a first-time visitor attending Lakeside Presbyterian Church, Chapala’s 10 am Sunday morning service, will first see the welcoming smile of the Greeters at the top of the wheelchair ramp. The wheelchair friendly ramp leads to the front door where the Greeters stand. These Greeters are just two of the Volunteers-In-Action team that support Lakeside Presbyterian Church, Chapala.
They say, “Welcome to Lakeside Presbyterian Church, Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico, please let us give you a bulletin covering the details of today’s service. If this is this your first visit with us? Would you please register at the visitor’s table once you are in the foyer through these doors. Once there you will receive our gift to you for attending today’s service. Do you have any questions that we can help you with?”
Followed by answers to questions, handshaking and or hugs, and with big smiles, all around the door is held open for you to enter.
Sue and Doug Lockyer ducked into the shade of the doorway on a hot Sunday morning in Chapala, for this photograph to be taken. This was their week to work as Volunteer Greeters, they are part of our Volunteer’s-In-Action program. Their job today is to stand out in the sun, with hats on welcoming members, guests and visitors to the 10 a.m. Sunday morning service at Lakeside Presbyterian Church, Chapala. They offer a smile, a handshake or a hug, along with the bulletin showing the order of today’s service. The bulletin also identifies the key events taking place during the following week.
We hope that you enjoy the service and listening to a meaningful word of God.
