Consider serving at upcoming SBC meeting

Consider serving at upcoming SBC meeting

Many Alabama Baptist churches work hard to perfect their greeter and usher ministries.

If your church is one of those churches then the upcoming Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) annual meeting needs your ministry team — and it doesn’t matter whether you have three trained greeters/ushers or 300.

The goal for the June 11–12 SBC annual meeting at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex (BJCC) is 240 people willing to serve those attending the meeting. Morning and afternoon sessions will be conducted each day but there are no evening sessions. The greeters and ushers will be assigned a specific session to cover.

Consider making a day trip out of the opportunity. A group from your church could travel together to the BJCC, serve together during one session and attend the other session. 

You don’t have to currently serve as a greeter/usher to participate. Individual church members with a cheerful heart and a willing spirit are also welcome.

Another way to volunteer is to participate in Crossover prior to the annual meeting. 

June 3–8 door-to-door visitation opportunities in a variety of neighborhoods throughout the Birmingham metro area will assist local churches in efforts to reach their communities. To find out more, visit (TAB)
