Good Shepherd Episcopal Church
Kingwood, Texas
Hospitality Corps

The Hospitality corps includes Greeters, Welcome Center Hosts and Ushers. These volunteers are often the "first face" of the church for newcomers and help make guests feel welcome.

Greeters greet parishioners and newcomers at the 10:15 a.m. service. Newcomers are introduced to the Welcome Desk in the Narthex where they can ask questions and get information about membership in the Church. There are six Greeter Teams, each with two members. Each team serves every six weeks. If you would like to be a Greeter, please contact Sandra Vuitel at 281-360-9641.

Welcome Center Hosts welcome newcomers in the Narthex, answer their questions and provide them with information about the Church. After the service, hosts escort newcomers to the parish hall for coffee and introduce them to other parishioners. There are four Welcome Center teams with three members on each team. Each team serves once a month. If you would like to be a Welcome Center Host, please contact Terry Whitney at 713-725-2656.

Ushers help make the worship experience hassle free and spiritual for all participants. Their responsibilities include distribution of the Order of Service and Weekly Announcements, passing the plate during Offertory, and guiding worshipers to the rail for Holy Communion. After service they collect stray bulletins and generally spruce up the worship area and Narthex. They also assist at special services such as weddings, funerals, confirmation, etc. Ushers serve on teams approximately once per month.If you would like to be an usher, please contact Randy Sutton at 281-354-7272 , or
