This Ministry is made up presently of five ministry teams:

Parking Attendants, Greeters, Guest Services, Ushers, Hospitality Team

They, like all other ministries at New Hope Community Church, are energized by the conviction that people matter to God, therefore they matter to us! These ministry teams work to accomplish one common purpose, to help create a positive and friendly atmosphere during the worship service by serving all who come, in some very practical ways.

This begins outside as people are looking for a place to park. Our Parking Attendant Team helps people find available parking in our parking lot. It continues as people enter the building, Our Greeter Team welcomes people, then the Guest Services Team helps them locate certain areas (Nursery, Children’s classrooms, Restrooms, etc.). It continues as people enter the Worship Center to attend our worship services. Our Usher Team greets them, offers them a weekend program, and helps them locate seating. Before and after services, the Hospitality Team prepares and offers refreshments for everyone to experience an awesome time of fellowship.
