Welcome Team: Volunteers welcome visitors and members to the Divine Liturgy every Sunday. They provide information to our visitors and to those interested in becoming members or being placed on our mailing list. Each potential member is called by a parish priest, then Welcome Team members follow up twice to help assimilate newcomers.
Newcomer Events: Organizes Newcomer Sunday for new and prospective members to help them become acquainted with other members. Introduces them to our various church ministries, and answers general questions on church membership.
Outreach Initiatives: Includes hosting open houses to our Charlotte neighbors, developing welcome materials for those who are new to the parish, and preparing materials for those exploring Orthodoxy. Past events have included reaching out to interfaith couples, non-Orthodox, and inactive Orthodox, to welcome and encourage their participation in the life of the church.
