We help create a welcoming and hospitable weekend environment for our church family and guests. Our desire is to ensure that every person feels seen, valued, and loved from the moment they arrive in the parking lot to the moment they leave.
Greeting Teams
Parking Team
Responsible for welcoming our church family and guests as they arrive in the parking lot. This role often involves setup and clean up of items needed to create a safe and seamless parking lot experience (e.g. cones, signs, etc.) Additionally, this team may also be expected to lend assistance to those who may need it when they arrive (e.g., elderly or disabled worshipers).
Sidewalk Greeter
Stationed along the sidewalks outside our building, these greeters welcome our church family and guests as they make their way from the parking lot to the main entrance. In the case of adverse weather, they may be expected to help worshipers get inside the building safely.
Outside-Lobby Greeter
Stationed outside the doors of our main entrance to greet worshipers as they enter the building. As needed, they may be expected to assist guests with questions or directions (e.g., location of kids check-in, restrooms, connect center, etc.).
Inside-Lobby Greeter
Stationed at interior doors from the lobby to the auditorium, greeters in this role welcome worshipers as they arrive in the big room for the gathering and bid them goodbye as they leave. As needed, they may also help by distributing any handouts to worshipers as they arrive/leave (e.g. communion elements, printed materials, etc.).
Stationed in strategic places throughout the lobby, servant leaders in this role greet and welcome people as they make their way to the various areas of our building (e.g., coffee, restrooms, big room, kids check-in area, etc.). As needed, they may be expected to answer questions or help guests get where they are trying to go.
Street Team
Stationed at our kids check-in area in the main lobby, these servant leaders greet parents and kids as they complete the check in process. As needed, they also help guests understand the process and successfully complete a check in for their child.
Floating Greeter
Greeters in this role do not have a specific station assignment. Instead they float around the lobby and big room with an eye toward engaging guests and those who may not yet have any relational connections. Servant leaders in this role are expected to engage people in conversation, answer questions and help people discover ways to connect with the Seven Marks church family.
Host Teams
Connect Center Host
The Connect Center is our one-stop location in the lobby for assistance with questions, connections, and next steps for our church family and guests. In the case of guests, hosts will answer questions, exchange church/personal information, and give out a gift. In most other cases, this role involves helping our church family connect to a ministry team, community group, or city team/initiative.
Auditorium Host
As worshipers make their way from the lobby to the auditorium, hosts in this role ensure that everyone is able to find a seat and help them safely make their way around. Other responsibilities include helping to take attendance, addressing disturbances, collecting tithes/offerings, and helping those who may need extra assistance (e.g., elderly or disabled worshipers).
Seat Back Team
This team meets during the week to help us prepare for weekend gatherings by ensuring that the big room is in order and that seat backs are properly stocked and neatly organized with any information that may be helpful to our church family and guests (e.g., prayer cards, sermon note cards, etc.).
Coffee Team
Helps to welcome our church family and guests who enjoy a cup of coffee. Primarily responsible for set/clean up of the coffee station as well as the preparation and serving of coffee to our church family and guests.
Response Teams
Prayer Team
Leaders in this role care for our church family and guests through their prayers. Currently, this team meets weekly on Thursday nights, and as needed during weekend gatherings to help worshipers engage with and respond to God.
Baptism Team
We host baptisms during our weekend gatherings several times a year. This team helps baptism candidates through the entire process from start to finish. They are also responsible for helping with set up and tear down of changing areas before/after gatherings.
Communion Team
At Seven Marks, we frequently observe communion during our weekend gatherings. Members of this team ensure that communion is properly set up before each gathering and oversee the clean up of all communion related items after gatherings. As needed, servant leaders on this team may be expected to help distribute the elements of communion.
