"I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the House of the Lord" -Psalm 122:1When a person steps into a church for the first time, he or she evaluates the atmosphere. He asks himself: "Will they accept me? Will it be easy to make friends? Will my spiritual and personal needs be met? Will it be easy to find my way around? Will my family like it here?"
The newcomer will quickly come to some conclusions during the first few minutes. First impressions are often lasting impressions. Consequently, the ministry of the Meeters is one of the most important things that happens in any congregation! Sometimes it is called "foyer ministry."
Although a Meeter's love should be no stronger than is the love found in the rest of the body of Christ, nevertheless the Meeter performs a major role in ensuring that people see and experience that love. In Christ, you have received God's unconditional love, and in Christ, you are called to extend that same unconditional love to others. The ministry of Meeting is perhaps one of the most crucial in the church because it is one of the most visible.
Our mission in the Meeter's Ministry is to encourage and enrich the lives of each person entering the doors of Cornerstone by welcoming and supporting them in a positive, friendly, spiritual matter.
Our purpose is to provide an enthusiastic, positive, spiritual and friendly welcome to each person entering Cornerstone before every worship service and special service. This ministry is committed to help make every worship experience at Cornerstone positive and spiritually up-lifting for everyone...every time.
