Newcomers is a committee that falls under the Ministry of Communication.  It is how we welcome and incoporate those who visit us and want to be a part of our church family?  Areas of focus for Newcomers are:

  • Designing Newcomer material (Ann Annrich)
  • Welcoming and Incorporation
  • Special Events (Newcomer Meals)

Please read the Newcomer’s Committee Annual Report at the bottom of this page.

Here is our wonderful, hard working Newcomers Committee:

Donna Shoaff,  Brenda Gross and Sarah Kirchman
 
2018 was a busy year for the hardworking ladies of the Newcomer’s Committee. Not only did they make phone calls to St. David’s visitors and guests, but also here you see the enthusiasm this team had for the task at hand, i.e. “brainstorming” new & creative ways of attracting members to St. David’s.
 
Good work ladies!

Newcomer’s Committee Annual Report
By Wynde Sipe- chairperson 2018

Our Newcomer’s Committee here at St. David’s endeavors to create a welcoming atmosphere for those searching for a new church home. With the help of the parish administrator, our committee reaches out to individuals personally, either by phone or card, to answer questions and provide information concerning the ministries and activities here at St. David’s. Our committee, along with the Sunday greeters & the ushers, help to foster a sense of belonging and invite involvement and participation by all who are interested in “a welcoming, loving community centered in Christ.”
