What is the mission of the Outreach & Hospitality team?

The Outreach and Hospitality team welcomes visitors and reaches out to the community to invite others to join us in our faith journey, through worship, activities and events.  We strive to be a welcoming visible presence in our community by participating in multiple activities and missions.

What are some specific Outreach & Hospitality activities and missions?

  • Brighton Summerfest – Annual outdoor celebration of Brighton’s rich diversity in which we setup free games for kids of all ages to enjoy.
  • Brighton Help for Homes – City-wide work day with teams formed to help the elderly and disabled to make their homes safe, warm and dry.
  • Family Movie Night – Movies shown in our Church sanctuary the 2nd Friday night of each month from Sept – June featuring popular family-oriented animated movies.  Admission to anyone who’d like to come is free so please come join us!
  • Vacation Bible School – Helping out in several ways including assisting with getting the word out to community-wide families about our fantastic Vacation Bible School event held each summer in June.  Grab your kids and come join us for our next Vacation Bible School event!
  • Welcoming Our Visitors – We strive to make our visitors feel as welcome as possible by giving them welcome bags which includes a coupon for a free doughnut and a beverage.
  • Postcard reminders for Special Events – Our team designs and sends postcards for special events to visitors & our congregation encouraging maximum participation.
  • And several other activities & missions – We serve to make our Church as welcoming as possible to our community!
