"Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God." (Romans 15:7)
Everyone is important to God - and to us, too! The way we welcome, accept, and care for people reflects God's love for us all. We genuinely care about people who have never been here before, the same as for those who have found a spiritual home here. We do our best to welcome, include, love, and support everyone, with the desire that they may feel God's love as part of the body of Christ at Northlawn UM Church. You can find out more about our hospitality efforts throughout the year below the photo.
If you'd like to help, just sign up on one of the clipboards at Connection Corner at church, or click on the links to online sign-up sheets:
- Greeters welcome people at church entrances and share lots of smiles.
- Ushers welcome everyone to the sanctuary, provide information about worship, help with seating, and offer any other assistance worshippers need.
- Connection Corner Hosts welcome people to our information hub in the narthex, answer questions, and coordinate sign-up clipboards.
- Coffee/Cookie Helpers donate cookies (church provides coffee) and/or prepare and serve refreshments, and clean up afterward. (When signing up, please indicate whether you will donate cookies, host the table, or do both.)

We serve fairly traded coffee through Equal Exchange because it supports both growers and consumers in working together for a more equitable, democratic, and sustainable world.
