Cafe Connections

Cafe Connections

 

The Hospitality Ministry is a team of caring volunteers who wish to welcome congregants to MCC Toronto through food and beverage services. This includes Café Connection after our morning services, Community Meals, concerts and other special events held at MCC Toronto. Come and have some fun in the kitchen!

Currently we are looking to build our Café Connection Team.  Can you volunteer one Sunday per month to help set-up beverages and treats for the 9am and/or 11am services? We also need a dish washer(s) to leave the kitchen clean for the next activity.

Café Connection needs to be set-up and ready for 10am and also by 12:15pm. Full training provided.

What you will need:

A welcoming smile.
Willingness to provide friendly and courteous service with attention to safety and cleanliness in the kitchen.

Slide Catalogues are stored on Dropbox; Lyrics Libraries are on WP.com

designers follow a weekly worksheet (the worship flow on WP.com) two weeks ahead of the service

they research and create new slides weekly as well as copy catalogued slides from Dropbox

their draft decks are sent to the lead designers for review (AM to Rain; PM to Chris)

edits are made and reviewed until satisfactory

the final draft is then crosschecked against the final OOS and sent to the operator

Operators:  

operators compile the service deck, announcement slides, videos and photos on Dropbox

they copy everything to their thumb drive as a backup

they do one last crosscheck against the OOS

they arrive at church early to check out equipment, download the files, vet some slides on the screen

they liaison with the Worship Coordinator and handle last minute requests (minimally accepted)

during the service, they advance the slides as the service progresses

they use headphones to communicate with Diane or Patrick (music director)

they then make post service notes and upload the deck to Dated Services and back to Dropbox

Ushers and Greeters

Ushers and Greeters: Morning Service

  As a greeter, you are the first face that people coming into Church encounter.  Your approach to the congregants is extremely important.  Your greeting, your personality and your warmth create the welcoming atmosphere that is so important for people to know that they are welcomed.  Your arrival time at Church would be 10:15 a.m.

As an Usher, you are an integral part of the service.  We help to create a flow during certain portions of the service.

We direct for anointing, we invite and direct for communion, creating the flow at this point during the service.

We also collect the offering.  Your arrival time at the Church is 10:30 a.m.

If you are concerned about training, we have a seasoned usher shadow you until you know how we participate in the service.
