That’s not a typo — YOU matter. YOUr love and care matter! WE are the hands and feet of Jesus to hurting ladies who need a friend and don’t have a relationship with God. These ladies face an eternity with Jesus or without Him. Will our love for them reflect His?

Stonecroft volunteers pray, invite, make phone calls, email, and publicize in the newspaper, radio, and on social media: all to attract ladies to our events. Then what’s next?

We each have a vital role to play in making women feel welcome. We want guests to be glad they came, to come back, and to recommend our outreach to a friend. Hospitality is at the core of our mission, reaching those who might be “allergic” to church and those who have never heard the Gospel. May they see a special love among us and be open to the Gospel message.

Hospitality is more than passing out the first-time packets and gathering welcome cards. The Welcome Team is there to make ladies feel like they belong. You are the eyes, ears, and heart of Stonecroft!

The new Handbook offers suggestions for your Outreach Group to pray about and explore how to share love and care with guests more effectively. You can add fun icebreakers for table conversation or listen for signals that your guests need confidential prayer. You can follow up with guests in a relational way by taking them to coffee and inviting them to join the team or take part in a Bible study.

May God give you the vision to share Him in a special way, living a life filled with love!

Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.

 – Ephesians 5:2, NLT
