Welcome Bags For All Visitors

Do you know that small, colorful  welcome bags, containing information about Trinity are available in the entrance of the church each Sunday for visitors?  We hope that some of these visitors will return and regularly join us. You can take an important role in welcoming visitors to Trinity by greeting people who you don't know. Even if they are long-standing members who you don't know,  you will lose nothing by sharing a friendly exchange! For those who are new, offer them a welcome bag, explaining that it contains information about our Church. The Sunday School prepares the  gift bags and stores them in the cupboard inside the Broad Street entrance so they are readily available for ushers to place at the entrance to the Church.
Since its inception about 3 months ago, we have welcomed about 90 people with our greetings and gift bags.  Please help this program be successful!
