What Is The Purpose Of The NEPC Hospitality Ministry?

The Hospitality Ministry at NEPC is comprised of volunteers who serve in areas to engage both our members and visitors.

The purpose of the NEPC Hospitality Ministry is to serve the church family by providing the appropriate food and atmosphere during times of weekly fellowship gatherings, church-wide events and special needs of the congregation. As well as engaging the church family through church-wide events. Church members with the desire to serve others will find true fulfillment in this ministry.

Why Serve?

Serving the church family is what we are all about. Jesus encouraged us to practice hospitality and in this ministry there are many opportunities to just that. We enjoy working in the kitchen to make every meal event a special one where the food and the fellowship together meet the physical and spiritual needs of those who come. Whether we are decorating for Christmas or arranging the Easter Lilies, there are always fulfilling ways to use the gifts God has given us to serve His people.
