Hopefully by now you've noticed some new smiling faces in the narthex following the services on Sunday. The new Welcome Desk Ministry, coordinated by the Evangelism Committee, kicked off Labor Day weekend, but we could still use a few people to join the rotation. Our goal is to have someone host the desk every Sunday and be another friendly face to help visitors to Augustana feel welcomed. Currently, visitors are given an Augustana mug, an informational brochure about our church, and a Campus Ministry brochure (if applicable). So if you are looking for a way to get involved and feel that having a welcoming atmosphere is an important endeavor, please help us out! The commitment entails hosting the desk about once/month, though it is very flexible. Contact Richelle Stackert or 773-288-9101. Thanks to the church council who is helping host the desk this fall while our ministry team is still being formed!
