Every Sunday morning at Cornerstone’s Hamilton Road site, a thousand or more members, attenders, and guests come through the doors to worship. Cornerstone is blessed to have such awesome volunteers that get up early to come to Cornerstone to make sure that the people who come through our doors have someone there to greet them, check-in their kids, show them where to go, and anything else they might need.

All of these volunteers make up our Guest Service teams. One of my responsibilities on Sunday mornings is to make sure that the volunteers are in place to ensure our guests have a distraction-free worship experience. But there is no way I could do this without the help of our most wonderful Guest Services Assistants.

(From left to right) Jerry Van Tuyl, Eva Wesche, Tracy Jenkins, and Russ Reddock do anything and everything on Sunday mornings for our guests and other volunteers. They fill in gaps where we are lacking in volunteers, hang out in the lobby during the service in case needs arise, tidy the restrooms, assist latecomers, check-in with Cornerstone Kids to see if they need anything, make coffee, and make sure our volunteers have snacks put out for them to enjoy between services – just to name a few! And they do all of these things because they get it.

1 Peter 4:10-11 says,

Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received. Whoever speaks must do so as one speaking the very words of God; whoever serves must do so with the strength that God supplies, so that God may be glorified in all things through Jesus Christ. To him belong the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen.

These four people have been blessed with the gift of hospitality and use that gift to serve His kingdom. Their service to Cornerstone is greatly appreciated. So if you need anything on Sunday morning, look for one of them (or me or any volunteer). And if you’d like to know how you can get plugged in to one of our Guest Services teams, please ask them, go to serving, or contact me at julia@cornerstonebuzz.org.
