The apostle Paul writes that when the church comes together for the purpose of worship they are to "greet one another with a holy kiss" (Romans 16:16; 1 Corinthians 16:20, 2 Corinthians 13:12). The apostle Peter adds, "Greet one another with the kiss of love" (1 Peter 5:14). And while the custom of greeting one another in such an intimate way has waned over the centuries, the principle behind this apostolic mandate has not. Affectionately greeting one another is of first importance.

The vision/mission of the greeting ministry at BCC is to warmly welcome those who enter the doors of our church on Sunday morning with a hearty "Good morning" and a healthy handshake. More specifically, by meeting and greeting visitors as the first line of interaction, we hope to make them feel WELCOMED, WANTED, and WORTHWHILE. 


The first impression of a church usually occurs, not when the pastor takes to the pulpit, but before the service begins—before the reading of Scripture, before a song is sung, and before the message is spoken. First impressions happen in the church parking lot, at the entry of the building, in the children's hallway, and in the lobby or foyer.

It is often said that people never get a second-chance at making a first impression. If that's true, then how much more is it true for churches? But by having an established team of greeters at BCC—with people welcoming people—we believe that we can leave a lasting impression that contributes to the growth and development of our church. 


Do you have a penchant for people? Are you available to be at church to the worship service on Sundays to offer a hearty “Good morning” and a healthy handshake to visitor and attendee alike? If so, then we invite you to join our team of greeters at BCC! We currently have families, couples, and individuals who volunteer their time to this all-too-important ministry. If you are interested in serving in this capacity, please contact Tim Snook
